…I started writing this post a couple weeks ago and had to take a break. I hope it encourages someone who is feeling hurt…
Sometimes people say words that really sting. Sometimes people ignore your needs, your feelings, and don’t even seem to see you. Sometimes these are the people who are supposed to love you the best.
What do we do when people hurt us? I’ll tell you what I usually do- I shut down, I become passive aggressive, I hurt back. My defenses go up and my focus is on self protection.
One of the things I know for sure, is that God is pro-relationships. God wants our friendships, marriages, etc. to be positive, nurturing, and loving.
One thing I try to remember when I am hurt by one of my main people, is that there is nothing more that Satan loves than to divide.
A really cool thing about God is that he can take a small offering and make it huge.
I was feeling hurt the other day, and a song came on the radio – the same song came on the day before, I sang it, but the words did not resonate with my heart. The day that I heard it after being hurt, my heart grabbed a hold of every word and I sang them in total worship.
