Hurtn’ & Quotn’

Over the past few weeks I’ve had multiple interactions with people who have been deeply hurt in some form. Healing is hard! Here are some great quotes I’ve come across in the past few weeks that center on the the topic of pain and past hurts.

“to encourage healing I have to do what I can to offer hope to a world that thinks that God is distant or at least if He’s here, He’s hidden behind the façade of religious complexity and tradition.” —David Foster

“I really felt led today to teach on getting past your past…reality is that if you don’t let your past die…it won’t let you live.”–Perry Noble

“Here is the principle: People do not change until the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change…”–Ed Stetzer

“sometimes you have to forget how you feel and remember what you deserve”–Henri Nouwen

 “When we become aware that we do not have to escape our pains, but that we can mobilize them into a common search for life, those very pains are transformed from expressions of despair into signs of hope”–unknown
