Heartbroken people break hearts. Insecure people make others insecure. Sometimes people treat others how they were treated. Break the cycle.
If it is robbing your peace, if it is draining you, if it is making you more cynical about the future than excited... it is not from God.
You can remind your soul a thousand times that God has forgiven you, but it will keep aching if the issue is you haven’t forgiven yourself.
For many of you, this has been one of the most difficult years. The tears were many and the pain was deep. But God is leading you into JOY!
