Growing Pains

Have you ever have one of those days where God sends someone to speak right into your heart and life, to let you know He hears you and He cares about *y o u ?* To remind you what matters to Him is your heart? To reassure you that He is in control, He has a purpose and a plan, and He gets you? And loves you still?

Spend time with Jesus, and let Him encourage your heart today. It seems so overly simplistic, but it isn't. It's simplistic in our heads, but not in our hearts. In our hearts, He overflows and pours into and out from our lives. In our hearts, we can't hold unforgiveness, because His love is bigger and has squeezed out the ugliness of bitterness. Let's be people who forgive and put all our pain, hurt and injustices on His alter and release it to Him. Let's grow up. Let's be people who trust Him. Completely. People who can love others because God loves us. Let's be people who know we will be hurt and choose to love anyway. Do you want to be a grown up Christian? Let Him heal your hurts. Ask Him the "big picture" questions. Wait to hear His answers. Understand life will sometimes be entirely too difficult, and that's okay. Our God is bigger. Let Him be bigger in our lives.
