Life can bring us pain, even from those who love us – those we love.
You will hurt others, too – maybe not on purpose, but you will. When that happens you will hope for grace – for forgiveness.
There are simply times when God must loose us from the relationships and activities from which we have derived our identity and sense of well-being. This is for our benefit, so that we can more deeply depend on the sureness of God’s character and love. He is faithful to us and has promised to never leave us or forsake us. He has promised to be with us in every circumstance of life.
