You be you

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

You be you. You can’t control anyone other than yourself and when someone hurts you, you have a choice about how you deal with that. Yes, there are going to be times you’re hurt and I don’t like it any more than you do but what if you allowed me to take that pain and hold it for you? I’m not offering to bury it or to deny it, I simply don’t need you carrying it alone and I’m offering to take it for you.

And as hard as it feels to hear this, I need you to remember that the person that hurt you is my child too. I love them as much as I love you. Yes, as much. My relationship with them is different to my relationship with you because you are two different people but my love is, period.

Sometimes the people that hurt you won’t even realise they’ve done so. You can forgive them and let me heal you without needing to make a big drama out of it. You don’t even need to go to them. Come to me instead and let me move in your life.

Other times they know exactly what they are doing and I’ll invite you to act. The difference is that when I invite you to act, you can be certain that I’ve gone ahead of you and prepared the way. The outcome is going to be so much more fruitful – for you and them.

I know you’re not particularly interested in helping them be fruitful but, me-helping you, it’s time to bless your enemies, pray for those who hurt you. Give them to me. Let me be God in their life and you focus on being you, with me. I turn all things to good, even the people and circumstances that hurt you, so trust that I know what I’m doing and in the meantime, you be you.
