"Hurt people hurt people" is more than a clever phrase. Hurt people hurt others because they themselves have been hurt. And each one of us has been hurt to one degree or another. As that damage causes us to become defensive and self-protective, we may lash out at others. Hurting becomes a vicious cycle.
But God can help break that cycle. He offers His healing and hope.
Hope that we will see more clearly how our wounding experiences fit God's design for our lives.
Hope that our scars will one day sing the praises of our living and loving Savior, even as we embrace the reality of choice, change, and transformation.
Hope that sees in the splinter fragments of broken lives the reflection and triumph of Jesus' empty tomb.
Jesus Christ is the only all-sufficient healer for hurt people. And He graciously uses human instruments in His healing work. It is the prayer of the author that our loving Lord will use this book as part of your healing process.
