It’s that undefinable moment that slipped past you almost undetected, but you suddenly notice it…
WAIT A MINUTE, YOUR PAIN OVER __________ DOESN’T HURT ANYMORE!
It could have been a betrayal. It could have been an abuse. It could have been an abandonment. It could be something they said. It could be something they did. It could be something they didn’t do. You know how they hurt you. You may still be in relationship with them, but THAT ONE thing suddenly doesn’t hurt you anymore.
It used to obsess you. It used to bother you. On good days the thought of it would rush to the front of your mind and say, “What are you smiling for? Remember me?”
But, WOW! You realize that it doesn’t bother you anymore. You even try to make it bother you for a moment and you can’t.
It’s not because God took it from you. It’s because you finally gave it to Him.
Remember God never promised TAKE anything from us. He tells us to GIVE it to Him.
1 Peter 5:7 (NKJV)
7 CASTING all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Hebrews 12:1 (NKJV)
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, LET US LAY ASIDE every WEIGHT, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
The pain is gone now. Please don’t go looking for it again.
