You experience deep pain when you are hurt by someone. Ironically, you also experience it when you hurt someone. You have lots of options about how to respond when you are in pain. You can go into denial (it’s not just a river in Egypt), express anger (the best defense is an offense) or rationalize (but I have a really good reason). These things may numb the pain for a little while, but it will come back. That’s why you need to give your pain to God. When you do, God wraps you in love, tells you the truth about what’s really going on and helps you move beyond what’s now past. It’s real love for real people and it really makes a difference.
