I hurt from what I've done.
I hurt from where I've been.
I hurt from where I fell down ...
got scuffed up
I hurt for what I've done to others.
I hurt for what others have done to me.
I hurt from my self-centeredness
insecurity and loss
I'm thinking maybe its a good thing I hurt. Maybe I'm suppose to. Maybe there's a purpose to my pain.
Maybe this pain is suppose to lead to repentance.
Maybe, just maybe, it is from my hurt that I may be used greatly.
I think that's encouraging...
"Going though the motions doesn't please you, a flawless performance is nothing to you. I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered. Heart-shattered lives ready for love don't for a moment escape God's notice." Ps 51:16-17 MSG
Do you hurt? Has Father ever used your hurt in a great way?
