I’ll never do that.
Have you ever said that? Maybe even as you looked at another person whose sin was hurting their heart or family.
And then you do it. It’s not what you wanted. Some days you aren’t sure how you got there, but you want out.
If you are part of the Proverbs 31 OBS study of The Mended Heart, you met Sarah this week. She’s a real woman. A beautiful woman I knew as a young girl.
She suddenly had no idea who she was anymore.
She was one of those who said, “I’ll never do that,” and yet here she was.
Her hidden affair didn’t stay hidden and she wanted to shrink from the gaze of those who loved her, and whose hurt couldn’t be hidden.
She wanted to hide from judgment when she went out for groceries. She knew what people were thinking.
She could barely breathe as she looked at the damage on the hearts of her family.
What do you do when sin has hurt your heart?
