We Hurt In Ways That Cannot Be Fixed

July 16, 2014

“We are relational, not mechanical.  That means we hurt in ways that cannot be fixed.  It also means that our only hope is to develop a relationship with someone who can support us in our pain, someone who will lift us to a sphere of living where something matters more than pain, until a day when we will hurt no more.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Understanding Who You Are, Page 18

Questions for Reflection:

• Do you feel relief or distress at the realization that we are inescapably relational, not broken things needing to be fixed?
• If you come to God relationally today, instead of asking Him to fix what is wrong in your life or your heart, what do you most want to say to Him?
• As you quiet your heart before Him, is there anything that matters more to you than the pain of what cannot be fixed?
