The story of Paul and Ananias teaches us much about healing relational scars. Take your hurt and be honest in the presence of God. Articulate your pain and anger to Him. Allow God to bring His redeeming love into your story. When we are in pain, we pull away from others, the very people God brings into our lives to help us to receive healing. Because Saul was able to receive forgiveness for the people he scarred, he was reconciled to God and was able to make an impact for the Kingdom. We can, too.
