They still hurt.
God created us for His glory, He blesses us to become blessings for others and somehow I have quickly lost track of that through worrying about what others might say if I express my love of Jesus Christ. I know that isn't what God is calling me to do. He calls us to do the uncomfortable, the radical, the unpopular. I lived many years trying to please others terrified of what they might think to know the truth. Now it's time for me to speak my truth with no fear.
Friends, you are always welcome here at Southern Hope. There are no hurtful words you could say to me, no issue, problem, nor sin... nothing could keep me from wanting to love on you, to send you hugs, to let you know you are adored by an amazing God who longs to know you better.
