The Sting of Betrayal...

Have you ever felt betrayed? If you haven’t, don’t hold your breath. Betrayal has the sting of a third degree burn, and it demands attention, care, and healing. It’s a hard journey back to trust, but what a beautiful gift we have in Jesus who gave His all -- gave his forgiveness and blessing so freely to those who took His very life. Only by grace can we learn to love and live as Jesus did, and it is so worth the journey!

These are comforting words from Psalm 34:17-19...

"The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help.
     He rescues them from all their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;
     He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
The righteous person faces many troubles,
     but the Lord comes to the rescue each time."


I am determined today to take one more step towards wholeness.  Blessings on your journey, too.
