Every Christian has been hurt by another Christian. And every Christian has injured a fellow believer. God provides a way through the pain by using the words you know by heart.
The problem comes when injury at the hands of another Christian festers inside us, makes us bitter, and leads to leaving the church, shipwrecking our faith, or building an impenetrable wall around our hearts.
But there is a way through the pain, a way that helps believers weather the aftermath of hurt by anyone, especially other Christians.
Every person can reach wholeness and healing in the aftermath of painful relationships by following the road map of the Lord’s Prayer. We’ve read the prayer a thousand times. We’ve memorized it. Recited it. Listened to it. Sung it. But have we considered how the power of Jesus’ words perfectly relate to broken relationships or even abuse? Author Mary DeMuth draws from her own experiences and provides simple steps for using this well-known prayer for personal healing.
The Wall Around Your Heart is about hope. It’s about leading hurt people through biblical truth into amazing, life-sustaining, and joyful growth. Instead of resigning ourselves to our wounds, we can rise above the pain, draw closer to Jesus, and become an agent of healing to others. Breaking down the wall around your heart is possible, and God can turn pain into promise.
