Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
When we are in the trenches of hurting or hurt feelings it can be difficult to dig out. When I am there, I must steal a moment away in stillness, listen to a comforting song, walk in the trading winds of God’s natural world, and piece together a mosaic of what to do with it. The comfort comes not in the understanding of the why necessarily but in the prayer of release. And while the hurt still may press against my heart at times, it is a dull press and there is peace, forgiveness and love.
Post Script: My goldfinch hasn’t returned. Did God get my attention well enough yesterday. Did it find new glass to bend? Bidding a good weekend to you all.
