Sometimes it just hurts

I was with a friend today…a friend who is stressed and hurting and getting to the point of numb, angry bitterness at all the things piling up in her life.  There’s so much she can’t control and she feels like all her efforts are just a waste of time.

Not the best time to point out that, yes, all your efforts ARE a waste of time if you think you will control circumstances and people.  I did share some of my past struggles but mostly I listened.

Because sometimes, it just hurts and you need to talk about how you feel and think even when you know you are wrong for thinking that way.  Sometimes, the weeds have to be exposed and pulled out so the seed of the Word can grow freely.
