You were created to be tenderhearted.
To feel life.
To feel the good, the bad, the joy, the sorrow and all the moments in between.
Yet it seems so much easier to let your heart go hard when the hurt gets overwhelming and when the betrayal stings.
Don’t do it.
Don’t succumb to the temptation to become brittle and bitter. Don’t stay stuck there, dwelling on what happened, or what should have happened and letting that shape your future.
Fight for your tender heart.
That means you have to feel the pain and process it. That means you walk through the valley of the shadow of death with God, not without Him.
That means you grieve what you have lost all the way through to acceptance, so you can live beyond it.
Stay tender hearted.
Don’t let life (and other people’s
choices) rob you from living in full color.
Your future you will thank you for it.
“A tenderhearted person lives a blessed life; a hardhearted person lives a hard life.” (Proverbs 28:14 MSG)
