I Know It Hurts


Someone hurt me. The same person has hurt me in the exact same way so many times over the years it is astonishing. Seems just when my heart feels healed the hurt comes all over again. And it is not a superficial heart wound. It goes deep. So deep. The person never acknowledges wrongdoing, never apologizes, and never changes in this one area. But circumstances are such that walking away is not God’s will. It is not His desire. But God did something so very beautiful I cannot help but share it with you with the hope you are blessed in the process.

“I know it hurts,” the Holy Spirit of God spoke tenderly, gently, lovingly to my heart.

Instantly I felt the presence of the Lord God almighty. Right there with me. Knowing my heartache. Knowing my heartbreak. Knowing me. Loving me. Right there to sweetly comfort me and to begin the healing all over again.

Sometimes when our hearts hurt we feel so very alone. Even when others are around, we can feel the aloneness of feeling like others cannot fully comprehend the nature and depth of how our hearts hurt.

But the Lord Jesus Christ took me under the shelter of His wings and wrapped me in His loving embrace.

I tried to hold in the tears as I walked by someone. I did not want the person to see.

But God already saw. God already knew.

“It hurts God,” I told the Lord.

“I know it hurts,” Jesus told me. “And I am sorry.”

Oh, God’s love is so magnificent. His kindness so indescribable. His mercy so unfathomable. His grace so sufficient. His goodness so everlasting.

May this message inspire you in your times of hurting to know that God sees your hurt. And His love never ever fails. His comfort is like none other.

Bring your heart before the Lord. And rest in the magnificence of His healing loving almighty glorious presence. Amen!

“Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:8 NKJV

“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV

“I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings…” Psalms 61:4 NKJV
