    • Dear Mindy:

      Many people have been emotionally wounded and mentally distressed by rejection and abuse because we live in a fallen world with imperfect and selfish people. We all have fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) and none of us are righteous (Romans 3:10). There is no one who is worthy of God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness nor can we pay our sin debt by our good works. Yet, because of God’s great love, He has graciously offered up his only begotten Son to pay the price for our sin (John 3:16).

      To be released from bitterness, you have to follow the example of Jesus. The sinless Son of God was whipped, beaten, had a crown of thorns pressed into his brow, spat upon, mocked and crucified yet He cried out, “Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). In spite of your feelings, you need to lay down your animosity at the cross. This is both an act of obedience and an act of faith. Forgive those who have hurt you and ask the Lord to forgive you as well for your unforgiveness. Then rejoice and thank the Lord for His love and mercy.

  18. Thank you, for the words of encouragement. Im in the process of understanding forgiveness, because i dont believe ive ever really forgiven in my life. I have always carried the load, because i felt it was my punishment. All things are process

  19. I am very encouraged by the verses and the prayers. Pray for my husband and I to have a baby in Jesus name.

    • Dear Heavenly Father and Most Holy God:

      Your Holy Word declares that the fruit of the womb is a blessing from God. In the precious and wonderful name of Messiah Jesus, I pray that you will bless Lisa and her husband with a beautiful, healthy and Spirit-filled baby. Comfort and encourage them as they wait upon the LORD for this prayer request to be answered. I thank You and give You all the glory, honor and praise that is due your Holy Name. AMEN

  20. Its been a tough month for me. Me and my boyfriend have gone through many challenges. Now i havent heard from in days and we speak everyday. I feel so lost im in love and afraid what is he going through that he has isolated him from me. I feel heart broken and lost

    • I sympathize with your emotional pain which is a natural reaction to rejection. But godly love is more than a feeling, it is a commitment to care for someone and consider their needs above your own. Seek a closer relationship with Jesus – “The Lover of Your Soul.”
