It's Supposed To Hurt

June 5th, 2016


No one can make you hurt like the lover of your soul. No one else but God could love you and know you so completely to make this possible. There are times when I chafe under the easy yoke and despair that the light burden is too heavy for me to bear. In my heart I have entered into covenant with God and I intend to see it through to whatever end He has planned for me, even if it means surrendering the one thing my heart desires more than anything else. It breaks my heart to do so. Dying to self was never intended to be a pleasant undertaking. Putting to death even the most natural of human desires for the sake of the Kingdom is indeed a crucifixion. It's supposed to hurt.
