“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.” Luke 6:27-28 ESV
Good morning, BlessedOne.
The blessing is the release. Natural response is to hurt those that hurt you. When you choose instead to dive deep into your Savior, you’ll find an ancient secret that is all yours to own and to share: giving away a blessing suspends the cycle of pain in you long enough to replace it with another feeling. Whether the relief comes for only a second or for day doesn’t really matter … because during the blessing you’re opening a doorway to healing and moving forward with life. There lies the gold and the irony – by blessing the one who is the source of your pain, you’re released from the hurt long enough to let the beauty of Christ into your own heart and mind.
Mysterious and mind-blowing-powerful. God is so good.
Send out the blessing.
