Let’s lean in and place ourselves at the discussion table today. Can we be transparent for a moment and answer this: “Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the weight of a relationship gone wrong?”
Living in this fallen world, we could all attest to the heaviness that can be very overwhelming at times. Sometimes those events can be less than desirable, yet very impactful. We will carry the memories of good and bad (remembering all details of the bad) and allow them to leave their imprint on our lives moving forward. The choices that we make that involve other people are greatly impacted by our interaction with them.
When things go awry, the hurt and pain that comes from negative experiences can become the hindrance to our growth and development as a person, as well as being destructive to the relationship with others.
Too often, we cling to the misery and agony of a mishap to the point of building protective walls to avoid future hurts. Contained within those fortress walls is the growing unforgiveness and bitterness that keep us captive, in what is misunderstood as protection.
I invite you to join me here today, as Lysa, Jim and Joel discuss the impact of forgiveness and confession as they share with us the illumination of Scripture in dealing with our heavy hearts.
I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~
