Hurt

Hurt

Its not fun…

no kidding right?

Comes at moments unexpected from the most unlikely places.

It pierces through he toughest of hearts, tears up the strongest of people, and forces things to happen unintended.

Unintended words

Unintended actions

Unintended retaliation

All ‘drawn” back and shot quickly like a hunter trying to kill a doe.

Aimed at those we perceived have caused the hurt, aimed at their very heart, with the intent of making them feel bad… to bring them into the arena of woundedness.

Hurt

It blinds us to the damage we are causing…

with our unforgiveness…

with our high expectations…

with our high view of ourselves…

Blind to the destruction that exist in the wake of our movements…

moving us into the arena of being no better than…

the ones who hurt us.

But even that…

(our view of the ones who have “hurt us”)

is tainted by our own vision of how we are seeing people through the glass we are wearing…

the glasses of hurt.

We are blinded while thinking we can see.

If only we could see through the glasses of…

Grace

Mercy

and Love

Giving the Benefit of the doubt…

and all the curtsies we would want others to see us with…

the same type of glasses Jesus looks at us through.

Then we would be able to handle the hurt…

much better…

with eyes that are clear…

and not clouded with grudge-e-ness.

Hurt

its painful

and only Jesus can help us handle it…

…correctly.
