Back on Track

We're Back!

We're getting back on track here at Life Hurts, God Heals! 

We have missed the past two weeks blogs, but our schedules are back on track now. Life Hurts, God Heals has been having such a great semester. It's amazing to look back and see the last eleven weeks and am already able to witness what God is doing in these students lives.

Making Choices

Have you made a lot of mistakes in your life? Have you learned from them? Do you find yourself screaming inside when you see someone else making wrong choices that you have already learned from? "STOP! don't do that!" Nobody's perfect, we all have made mistakes in life, but the question is have we learned from our mistakes? Do we continue to strive everyday to make better choices? Or do we continue to make choices that please ourselves?

Let It Go!

What are you holding onto? Is there something in your life that is eating you alive? Are there secrets that you haven't told anyone? Maybe you don't have any secrets, but you still feel like a semi truck is sitting on top of you? Are you hurting and feel helpless, like there is nothing else left in your power that you can do anymore?

Have you heard the saying: "We are as sick as our secrets"? Well as Elsa would say "LET IT GO, LET IT GO!" - As played out as that song is, there is much truth in it's title.

It's Time to Evaluate!

Has your life ever been evaluated? Have you ever had someone evaluate you too quickly? Or maybe they don't have all the evidence to evaluate you. Are we guilty for evaluating others? Do we draw a conclusion based on what we see and not what we know? Maybe we think we know who someone is but we haven't collected all the evidence. What if that evidence has been tampered with? Are you tampering with the evidence you're giving to people about your life? Would you even recognize your own evidence if it was shown to you?

Truth? Or Dare?

Do you remember playing Truth OR Dare with your friends? Were you the one who picked truth? Or were you the one who picked dare? Remember being scared no matter which one you picked? Which one were you more petrified to answer; truth or dare? Maybe you were the one who instigated it, Why? Why would  someone get pleasure out of putting people on the spot to here there deepest darkest secrets? Well, I know one person who does.

Have you ever felt like you just want to hide away in a hole and never come out? Where no matter what happens in life you always want to tuck yourself away and hide? Or maybe you feel a little like me that you have had so many people stab you in your back that you would do or give anything to be protected from that again. A recent event in my life brought back a lot of pain , depression, anger, bitterness, temptations and every single one of those started more issues in relationships in my life. There was ACTION that had to be taken to become a healthier person and to steer away from making mistakes.
