It’s happened to all of us. Someone did us wrong!
When somebody wrongs us, either by accident or on purpose, it can be extremely hard to get over it. In fact, we may never be able to reconcile with the wrongdoer. That said, forgiveness is essential and it gives us a chance to heal and become a better person. Don’t get me wrong. Forgiving doesn’t mean that you’re excusing what someone or a collection of people did. It especially doesn’t mean that you can’t still have feelings about what happened.
Dry spells are moments when we doubt God’s presence in our lives. We may cognitively know that God is always near, but we struggle to truly feel His presence.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life that I forget to take a moment and ask, “Is this adding to my life or taking away? Is this bringing me closer to God or further?”
