> Privacy is the #freedom to be imperfect
It is #acceptance of who we are and everything that we have been.
#Brokenness alters us emotionally. It does not just make us think differently, it makes us also feel differently. It alters our relationships. Brokenness tends to affect our capacity for intimacy. It also affects how others relate or respond to us. Brokenness makes us act differently.
So, basically it affects just about everything that we do and who we are.
A lot of paintings in the church depict your #Jesus as a #superhuman. But this is dangerous. Jesus was no superhuman. He was not #Superman. He was a very normal, ordinary #human, just like you and me.
I have been reading a book on antigravity. I can't seem to put it down!
And I still am not able to fully, always love perfectly.
To love someone means to do what is necessary to keep them alive, and intact.
Sometimes that means to suffer for the loved ones and to sacrifice desires and wishes!
It means to acknowledge and respect their individuality and to honor their freedom and to value and not violate their boundaries!
A #Sacrifice is a gift. To give oneself without complaining nor expecting a refund for what has been given.
We are so used to ask questions, so that we have to learn that it is okay to just listen or to agree with repeating what has been said.
Only if we are able to look truthfully at what happened, we can acknowledge dirt in our lifes.
This step of acknowledging then empowers and enables us to clean up awful dirt, and get rid of it out of our life so that it no longer affects us.
Forgiveness requires truth.
Underneath the #Himalayas of trauma, I am a different person. I wish you would have gotten to know the real me.
If this is for you, then you know it is.
Healthy, godly #grief is, when we enter into #mourning with how #God sees our #hurt and #pain. Healthy grieving is productive and will lead us back to living an abundant #life.
It carries a #promise: #hope for #redemption.
Unhealthy mourning on the other hand is what some call #selfpity; caressing or caring for a #wound, but with the wrong #medicine.
It is being built upon a #lie, and thus will not bring #healing. Instead it'll let our wounds #fester and develop #hatred and #bitterness within.
This is a love story. I am very moved.
