Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church. I learned something a little scary about myself this weekend while cleaning my bookshelves. I even had a book by Dr. Really Mary? We live in a culture looking for the quick fix to every problem. I want some hope to find the answers to my fears.

The problem with the self-help phenomenon is it can gives us the illusion that we can actually fix ourselves without the help of God. Instead of dealing with our hurt, sin, and deep issues, we learn strategies for coping and hiding.
In high school, I hid my wounded-ness and deep insecurity behind my list of achievements. With three varsity sports, student council, shiny awards and leadership roles galore, I looked like I had my act together. But inside, I never thought I was enough. I was never pretty enough, smart enough, or funny enough. I believed lies about myself that bound me.
If God Doesn’t Heal You
I thought the shame and pain I carried inside from past hurts could never mend. So I just coped. He came to give us life and life to the fullness. John: He came to restore us and to make us whole. He came to bring healing. Throughout scripture we see the countless stories of him giving sight to the blind, making the lame walk, raising the dead, and healing the lepers. That would be scary.
But to live in this fallen world is to know pain and the effects of sin in our hearts. We all carry pain from shame, rejection, or feelings of unworthiness. But just as Christ ministered healing to the lame and the lepers when He walked on the earth years ago, He wants to heal the wounds and blindness of our hearts today.
He did this so that we might live in righteousness, having nothing to do with sin. By his wounds you were healed.
More from this Issue
It still hurts. Our God is not a Santa Clause or a magician.
He is a gentle healer and a loving surgeon. He wants intimacy with us — a relationship. It is in and through that relationship that His love has the power to heal our wounds. He wants to hold us and walk through the pain with us, using the healing of the sacraments and bringing the resources and the people to guide us along the way.
Whatever your wound is — rejection from a failed relationship, separation of your parents, loss of a loved one, insecurities, abuse, shame from sin, feelings of abandonment, addiction, or a long list of small ways you hide your failures and inadequacies — God endured that very wound and carried it on the cross to so that you could be restored to new life. We have a savior.
