It takes me a while to realize Iím not singing along. In fact Iím sitting, touching my scars and caressing the more recent wounds. I try to sing but the words wonít come out. They canít. How can I sing a worship song about being healed when just yesterday I cried tears of blood?

It is true that since I told my friends and family about my secret and started praying for help I have been getting better. In the past three months Iíd gone form hurting myself everyday to lasting a whole two weeks. But Iím no where near healed and donít. Think I ever will be. This is something I will never be able to do on my own.

ďThank you for healing meÖĒ the chorus starts back up. I lean back and close my eyes. I murmur my own version.

Please, Lord heal me today
Please, Lord heal me today
Please, Lord heal me today
Please, Lord heal me today

It is the most sincere prayer I have ever made. And I can feel him. I can feel him caressing my self induced wounds, healing them. I can feel him reach deep into my soul and start working on the old ones. They deep and pussy and gross and will definitely take some time but I believe my prayer. God is healing me today and he will tomorrow and Iím ready. Iím ready to throw out my blade. Iím ready to heal for real. Iím ready to let God take over. So that one day I can sing.

Thank you for healing me

Oh my, once I realized you were talking about healing from self-mutilation, this entry took on a different flavor. Thanks so much for sharing this glimpse into the soul of the those who cannot stop themselves from self-harm. I wish those so afflicted could take John 10:10 as their personal promise.
