Hurt yet Hopeful

Disturbing. The last 2 months have been disturbing times.

Love that had only just begun. Love that goes back a long time. You just don’t do that to people you supposedly love. I read their words, hear their stories, look into their eyes – and my heart breaks. I don’t think I even begin to skim the surface of the hurt though.

What happens to those dreams? Those irretrievable pieces of self? What have we allowed the devil to do?

There is hurt. More than we’d like.

But there is also Hope. Transformation. The pain is outclassed by miracle. Mercy. Forgiveness. Restoration.

Make no mistake about it, the Lord is still at work. He is in the business of turning things around – beginning with hearts that belong to Him.
