Topic: Cross (as in the Cross of Christ) (08/17/06)

TITLE: Wounds

I watched the blood trickle out of the wound I had just inflicted upon myself. About an inch wide, and deeper than I had thought.

“I’m sorry, God,” I cried, “I’m so, so sorry.”

I had thought I was done with cutting, but apparently not. It had been six months since the last time. I had been a ‘model Christian’ for the past six months, ever since I had quit.

“I still love you.”

The voice was as plain as day.

“Why? Why?” I asked, knowing the voice was God, “You shouldn’t love me. I’m too bad. I’m a bad person. Don’t love me, don’t love me.”

“I love you.” The voice said.

“No!” I cried.

“Get a pen.” The voice commanded.

“Why?” I questioned, although obeying.

I held the pen in my hand.

“Make a cross of your scar.” He said.

I slowly drug the pen to form a cross.

“I already paid the price. My blood bought your soul. By my wounds you are healed.”

I stared at the cross on my ankle as the reality of his words hit me. I can’t save myself. By his wounds I am healed.

I like how you showed God's love in this. My heart and compassion went out to this character, and I was mesmerized to the end.

Keep up the good work, and never be afraid to approach topics like this to show God's love.

I would like to see this in a longer version, with more background.

Good writing, and good entry!

I thought this article was really good and showed what happens when we lose sight of God.
I agree with more filler information, like what brought this person back to this point in their life again.

Very interesting. The story was real and honest. Praise God, the power of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross can empower us to overcome all things. God bless.
