Have you ever been the focus of someone's verbal attack?
I want to believe that this fellow Mom was trying to give me transparent advice. I want to believe her intent was good but wow, it was hurtful.
She said things like, "My family will never look like yours...You're not relatable..." and she had plenty more to say that was worse and I won't repeat.
Yep, it hurt but it wasn't the first time and won't be the last that someone attacks me in this way.
It's times like these that the verse John 16:33 gives me strength. We don't need to be here long before we realize this is not Heaven. We will have hurts and heartaches but the Lord will always be my comfort.
Have you had recent hurt? Tell Him about it. He's listening and has just the comfort you need.
