“Hurt people hurt people.” There’s no getting around it. Thankfully, Jesus knows…
Lord Jesus, we’re grateful You are a high priest who knows AND feels what we go through at the hands of others, and our own. The betrayal, the rejection, and the pure torture we experience doing life with messy people.
And we’re thankful we don’t go through it without You.
Anything You allow to happen to us, You will make work for us. We say it by faith because we don’t know what that requires or looks like. And not knowing scares the crap out of us—but You knew that already.
You’re bigger than our fears and that’s exactly what You want to show us. Lord give us the courage to put our hand in Yours and not yank it back. You know we wince and jerk when things get overwhelming, but we don’t want to take our hand back and make more of a mess than we already have.
Lord heal us everywhere we hurt.
And thank You for your patience!!! We think we know best and what we don’t know, we try to figure out. We keep trying to be You, when You call us to be childlike in faith over childish in behavior.
We trust You with our whole heart. We acknowledge You in everything. And we know You’ll set us on the good path You have for us.
So, get the glory from our lives. In your name we pray. Amen.
