Beyond the mess
Sometimes I’ll be floating along through life, everything reasonably even-keel, and wham!—my heart gets broken by surprise. It’s kind of like when you’re not watching where you’re stepping and you miss a curb or hit a pothole. The jolt is sudden and jarring.
A surprise broken heart is sudden and jarring jolt. It rattles your teeth.
This is the risk of letting Him take over your heart. You will begin to see as He sees. You will begin to hear as He hears. You will think His thoughts in your mind and you will feel His heartbeat in your chest.
And at the end of this day I am reminded and convinced of this: Jesus came for people, not problems.
A person is more than the sum total of their problems.
See the person. Love the person.
Because a list of principles isn’t what repairs and heals. Love heals.
