The human heart was created with a great capacity to love. But at the side of that comes a great capacity to feel pain. There is not any denying that those who love us, who are closest to us, can wound us the most profoundly. That kind of pain can be difficult, if not inconceivable, to overcome. And it can feel even more inconceivable to continue loving in the face of it. Yet that is exactly what we are called to do.
Sharing his own story of personal pain, pastor and New York Times bestselling creator Jentezen Franklin shows us how to find the strength, courage, and motivation to set aside the hurt, see others as God sees them, and reach out in love. Through biblical and modern-day stories, he discusses various kinds of relational disappointment and heartache, and answers questions such as Why must I accept as true with again? and How can I ever actually forgive?
The walls we build around our hearts to cut us off from pain are the very walls that block us from seeing hope, receiving healing, and feeling love. Here are the tools and inspiration you want to tear down those walls, work through your wounds, repair damaged relationships, and discover ways to love like you’ve never been hurt.
