Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you. - Ephesians 4:32 (NRSV)
Growing up I had a challenging relationship with my father. Though I knew he loved me, he often hurt my feelings by the things he said to me or the way he said them. I grew up thinking all sorts of negative things about myself that simply were not true....
Today I will offer God’s love in places of pain.
