will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

only through Jesus.

i've learned that it truly is possible to love those who hurt you. there is someone in my life right now who has hurt me, and my heart is soft. i hurt FOR this person. it's the strangest thing, but the Lord just said, "this is how I feel for you. you hurt Me, purposefully sometimes, when you sin, but My heart aches for you. I ceaselessly pray that which is best for you."

amazing.

How mature to look at a situation with such an attitude...Some adults never get to this point...I think it's having an unconditional heart...like Jesus has for us, as you said. We hurt Him, but he still loves us...Unconditional. That's how I have always summed it up and how I always try to be to the people around me. Such a sweet thing to post.

Isn't that so true but we rarely look at it like that. People will be people unfortunatly. But the Lord is always so forgiving of us and loving. I'm sorry someone hurt you...
