There are things that we experience in this journey that appear to be larger than ourselves and more than we can handle. It is during these times that we need to tap into a powerful force--God, Our Creator--to help us to move past the pain, heal the wound and to understand our worth.
Often times, particularly when it pertains to childhood trauma, the pain pierces through our soul and goes directly to our spirit. A wounded spirit can cause us to experience low self-worth and to damage our relationships.
Spiritual healing- the scriptures below have gotten me through the worst of times and the darkest of hours. They have also helped me to build self-esteem that was once badly torn down. I want to encourage you to read these Bible verses, meditate on them, digest them and get them into your spirit. You can also use these as devotions. Watch these words transform the way you see your pain and the way you move.
