Hurts or Grudges (May 18, 2013)

Hurts/Grudges

“God’s desire is to move your hurts from producing resentment to producing love.” {p. 66 “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

A difficult task, but necessary one, is identifying our hurts and/or grudges that we’ve been carrying around and offering forgiveness to those who have used us, manipulated us, hurt us or abused us.  To be truly free, we must let go of the burden of holding on to our hurt like a small trophy we carry around as an excuse not to do something or to explain away a flaw in our personality.

[Read Luke 10-12]

Luke 11:36 “If you are filled with light, with no dark corners, then your whole life will be radiant, as though a floodlight were filling you with light.”

Father God,
Hurts have made their way into my heart and made a home there.  Some of them are so old they have become comfortable excuses for behavior and/or personality.  I truly desire to be healed and set free from the damaging bondage to the past.  Please, Great Physician, perform Your healing in my life. Amen.
