There is a saying that you never really get to know or fully and deeply experience love for someone unless they’ve hurt you! And because God is a person – as expressed in Jesus – here will be a time when He will likely hurt you. Not because He does something selfish or cruel; no, our hurt with God usually has to do with what He doesn’t do, what He doesn’t give us and when we don’t know how close He is – or feel His love. We think, “He could’ve” …or “He should’ve,” or “If He really loved me, He would’ve!” And we blame God for our lot in life, our circumstances, our lack of… something! And if we hold a grudge or carry resentment – then we need to forgive! To just let it go!
