Sometimes stuff just hurts.  Betrayals, misunderstandings, not believing the same, stuff from the  past getting in the way of someone hearing your present, the not listening, the not hearing, the sin, the humanness, rhythm changes, poverty of spirit, lack of truth and wisdom.....all of these things can bring pain, heaps of it.  These happen daily, sometimes hourly.  They happen in Honduras, they happen in the U.S., they happen in China, they happen in Africa.  The question for me is; where is my focus going to be?  Am I going to let those things play over and over again in my head and heart, and then coming out of my mouth, my actions - or am I going to lay it down, again and again, release it, again and again, and receive the hope that He has for me in each situation?  Will I turn my focus to His goodness, His mercy,  His righteousness,  His robe of white for me?  Will I be part of His plan, or the wrecking ball for mine?

I love my God, he hears my cry and knows my heart.  He will make beauty of the ashes.
