Ask any doctor, it is much easier to diagnose and cure an acute injury than a chronic one. A broken bone is very straight forward in regards to identifying what it is and how to fix it. However, a stress fracture is not as visually upsetting as a broken bone but much more difficult to diagnose and provide a plan for healing. The same is true in our lives. When we have a dramatic, overt trial, we see it and work to resolve it. However, a more covert issue in our life may go undetected for a long period of time. A broken heart is more difficult to resolve than a broken bone.
Lord, thank you that you are able to identify and heal those wounds that I may not even see.
