Hurt by Lee Gossett

Be Encouraged welcomes Guest Author Lee Gossett.  We trust the Lord that Lee’s submission will Encourage and Bless you today.


MATTHEW 18:21-22 Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven … ” (NASB).

The more time that goes by the deeper the hurt becomes and then we develop a shell around our hearts keeping everyone -including God – away from us because we simply don’t want to be hurt, again. Everything (everyone) is impacted by unprocessed pain in OUR lives.

Dear friends, God never intended us to carry these types of burdens and unprocessed pain throughout our lives OR day to day.

PSALM 55:22 Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall (NLT).
