living your wounds through

"You have been wounded
in many ways.
The more you open yourself
to being healed,
the more you will discover
how deep your wounds are...
The great challenge is
living your wounds through
instead of thinking them through...
Your heart is greater than
your wounds."

Henri Nouwen - "The Inner Voice of Love"

It does take courage to keep "living my wounds through". I have read some of Henri Nouwen's works, but not "The Inner Voice of Love." I'll have to look for that one!
Thank you, Roberta!
