EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
How many of us deny and deflect our pain when someone gets close to the hurts we feel or carry? We change the subject and go to something we are much stronger in or a subject we have achieved with excellence.
Many of our souls are starving for attention and in need of a full heart. We stay off wounds that crack open again. Our hurts are buried deep, just like the woman at the well, and we wish to keep them there.
But NO! We need an encounter with Jesus.
The devil will continually stir up pain in our lives to keep us off track and stuck, but when we take our hurts to God, He intends to heal us through a relationship with Him.
God has your back. The Bible tells us, “goodness and mercy follow us.” (Psalm 23), and that indicates God has your back! He redeems you of your past and your hurts! He can restore you by forgiving, healing, and redeeming you so that no memory will trigger you off course when you are talking with another. You are not a victim with Christ.
I used to bury and veer from conversations that hurt me. Now I face it full force and use the pain of my past for God’s purpose. What a freeing life it has become, and in the midst of it all, I get to help others move from pain to their purpose! God is so good. Trust Him!
