This earth-shattering news broke me. I cried out to God for answers and felt no immediate response. In this time of waiting, the Lord was shaping me. He brought me to my knees and filled my heart with hope and a peace unlike anything I had experienced. About a month ago, when I received the worst news yet, God strategically placed me among two friends who lovingly lifted me up and reminded me of the Lord’s purpose.
We've all experienced hurt at some point in our lives. Before we can ever begin to heal from those hurts, we must recognize the pain we've felt. Although dealing with our hurts may be difficult, God is waiting for us with his arms wide open and ready to walk with us through the process.
