I hate seeing people hurting. I hate it.
Knowing someone is hurting makes my heart hurt.
I can pray about it, I can pray for them.
But it still leaves an unsettling feeling.
Sometimes I message them, letting them know I’m praying for them;
But when they don’t respond, I feel like a creep.
It’s not my intention, I just really hurt when other people hurt.
Maybe I just need to cut some people from my life.
Unfriend a few people on facebook.
I have seriously gotten physically sick; watching friends hurt, alone.
Because they won’t take help.
Bible verses help sometimes;
But a lot of times they are just ignored.
Maybe I just take Colossians 3:12 too seriously.
Maybe I should just let people find out for themselves.
If I just let people fall or hurt, am I in sin?
What if they reject my help?
People rejected Jesus.
I’m just an overflow of the love He’s shown.
Maybe I just need to pray for the hurting.
God will open the doors, if it is his will.
I just need to be still.
Be still, Stephen. Be still!
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12
