Alarm and anguish. Torment and agony. Hurt and pain: the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual kinds. Shattered dreams and broken promises. Who doesn’t know that life’s traumatic experiences and tragic relationships frequently cut through the heart like a jagged knife!
Is there healing for the wounds? Is there comfort for the wounded? Is there hope for the hopeless? Is there wholeness for the broken?
The answer is yes! However, it is conditioned upon an appropriate understanding of the following principles:
- Reality–removing the masks.
- Strength–rethinking power.
- Understanding–recovering sensitivity.
- Acceptance–receiving one another.
- Values–respecting true worth.
Are you willing to take off masks and be real? Are you ready to reconsider the meaning of power, that you may know an invincible strength? Are you prepared to learn to be understanding, even when you don’t understand? Are you humble enough to accept that which you cannot change? Are you ready to believe the tremendous value that God bestows upon you and all other human beings?
