I would take every scar, every open wound, every disappointment and shield you from the agony of broken living, But I can’t. All I can do is prepare you for the painful walk of human existence and the resulting pains.
Despair, Anger, Grief. All these are inescapable. Develop healthy coping skills.
Misplaced anger and pain can manifest in destructive ways, such as self-harm. Physical pain might bring temporary relief from stress, but it is short-lived and leads to further self-destruction.
Only faith in the perfect God can absorb your pain and sin. The perfect God who can do for you the one thing I cannot — save your soul.
Your body is not your own. God paid an exorbitant price to cover your sins and purchase your redemption.
In the storms of destruction, cry out to God most high, the God who will fulfill His purpose for you. Depend on His steadfast love and faithfulness.
1 CORINTHIANS 6:19-20 – NIV
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
