Description


You can overcome life's obstacles and hurt even when they occurred as a child or as an adult. You may feel like all your life, there has been hurt that you just cannot get over, but with JESUS, you can overcome. The book of James 1:20-21 states, "Anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires." Get rid of all impurity and every expression of wickedness, and with a gentle spirit, welcome the Word planted in you that can save your souls. As a little girl, I was mentally, verbally, and physically abused. I wondered why I did not have any friends. I became very angry about the way I was treated. I cried almost every day and developed a feeling of bitterness and hatred. I asked my grandmother why I don't have friends and she told me, "You have a friend named Jesus." My grandmother taught me about Jesus as a child and how bad he was treated even as a perfect man. She told me, "Jesus was abused in every way, beaten, and they crucified him for no reason. If Jesus who was perfect was treated wrong, you will also be treated wrong." When she told me that, my cries of hurt became laughter. We can be of help to one another by showing love. When others do or say things to hurt others, it's because they are hurting themselves. First Corinthians 4:8-9 tells us we are pressed on every side but not crushed, perplexed but not in despair, persecuted but not abandoned, struck down but not destroyed. We must forgive so Jesus can forgive us. We must pray for each other even those who do wrong toward us. The Lord says, "No weapon formed against us shall prosper." We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus You have the victory You can overcome.
