Sometimes internal injuries or hurts cannot begin to heal until they are brought out into the open. There once was a young man who knew a big secret about a family member. He was asked to keep that secret. He did and then prayed for God to heal that secret sin. That healing did not happen until that sin was revealed. Bringing the secret into the light provided the opportunity for others to join in the prayer and helping the healing begin. There is no guarantee of a miraculous healing, but it could at least begin.
Questions for further thought:
1. Do you know of something that needs to be brought out into the open?
2. Is there someone you can talk to?
Challenge: Is there a first step you can take to bring light to a situation that needs healing?
