EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
One of the most disheartening things we can feel is when someone betrays us, especially ones that are so very close to us.
There is no way to justify gossip behind your back, lies said about you, slander, or hurtful division. It just stinks! It rips apart the closest of friends and hurts the very core of trusting relationships. It seems as though, in one way or another, each of us can relate to this happening at one time or another in our past.
God will set things in order. He promises.
“All who rage against you will be ashamed and disgraced. All who contend with you will perish and disappear.” (Isaiah 41:11)
Please release the person or people who have wounded you so deeply in your past. Let the hurts go. I understand this is not always easy, but please do not harbor bitterness or resentment toward any offending party. It will only bring you down. Something has the soul of a person who does such things shackled. Your best defense is to understand “who” is causing people to do such things. It’s not God. Begin praying and surrendering them over to God, who can resolve ALL things and release your hurt to Him!
Just imagine… YOU could be the one who prays for them and asks God to set them free, and in God’s time, it can happen. Allow God to use you in every situation that comes against you.
Please ask God to build the POWER inside you to release your pain while showing them love. I’m not asking you to do anything I haven’t done myself. It’s not an easy thing for any of us to do. Your heart will feel better when you forgive and love to take over in an abounding way. It’s something we may have to repeat several times to really solidify what we are actually doing, but trust that it will be done as you do it in Jesus’ name!
Freedom from such pain will not only set these captives free, but with your prayers and forgiveness, it will set YOU free!
As tears stream down my face in writing, I often times understand it’s because of a “word” that God gives to me from my own life that He allows me to share with others in hopes of encouraging them.
The words sometimes hit so very close to my own home, but I can rejoice in “freedom” because GOD has delivered me. I Praise Him!
My heart is grateful for the truths I’ve learned over the years. It has allowed me to be transparent with you all as God leads me through some things as well. I share in the hope of encouraging you while writing what God has taught me in my daily walk with Him.
