has your heart ever been hurt because you know you've hurt God?




Serena Woods video is a must watch! Warning though, be sure to have some tissues with you because you will need it.

Looks can be so deceiving and I'm shame to say that I was shocked when I heard Serena's testimony! She doesn't look like she's been through anything that she's described.  I know... what does a person who is hurt looks like?  She looks like me and she looks like you.

Watching this there was a load of sorrow that over took me for Serena's childhood.  The words that rang so true for me is what she says being so sorry for something that she's done because she knows how God feels about it.

Have you ever been there, sister?  Can you relate?  How did you handle it?


Have you done something that you're so incredibly sorry for because you know that it has hurt God?

  1. Well...you were correct...tissues were needed. And to answer your question...yes I have. I carried the guilt of "it" with me for years. It took me a long time to forgive myself. I would repeatedly ask forgiveness. Quietly and gently I would hear God tell me I was forgiven but "it" was too great to believe that His mercy would be so quickly offered. Fast forward many years and cancer came calling. The night of my diagnosis, I was at my office alone when the call came in. Of course many tears were shed and I immediately began praying. My prayers were flooded with me telling God how unworthy I was of his healing but I was asking anyway. And that continued to be my prayer. Within a few days, I received a FB message from a high school friend that I hadn't seen in a very long time. I was only a few words in length but contained a link to Laura Story's song "Grace". This became my theme song. Every single chemo treatment I played that song as I drifted off to sleep. The following words stay close to my heart even now.

    I ask you: "How many times will you pick me up,
    When I keep on letting you down?
    And each time I will fall short of Your glory,
    How far will forgiveness abound?"
    And You answer: "My child, I love you.
    And as long as you're seeking My face,
    You'll walk in the power of My daily sufficient grace."

    Thanks for sharing this Angela and for prompting a hard but much needed discussion.
