The unthinkable raised its head in our family this week. Family far away experienced something that has us all reeling.
So, what do we do in times like this? We could allow our anger to take root and cause bitterness. But bitterness just locks us up in prisons of soul, mind and heart. Forgiveness? At some point. Right now, it seems too early for that, especially if true repentance is not shown and it is not asked for. And just how does one determine that repentance is real? At this point, I don’t know. Trust? I doubt that will ever exist again with this person. Forgiveness may eventually come, but trust…most likely never.
What do you do when someone destroys a family? What do you do when it is someone you love? And when it is a family you love? We are a family in grief. We are a family that is struggling to make sense of something that makes no sense. We are walking through life taking one day at a time, one hour at a time and even one minute at a time. Our hearts are broken and the wounding and betrayal go very deep.
Abba, please bring Your strength. Please bring Your healing. Please bring Your provision. Thank You for all You have done and continue to do through those who care and love. b’shem Yeshua
