Tonight showed me something: I have a three friends and neighbors who are hurting deeply. I need to be in a place where I can pray for them, and believe that God will hear me.
I’m not in that place, because of my own stuff. It’s their stuff that’s causing them so much pain, too. But I can see it; I’ve been saved. I’ve been blessed with having had the opportunity to have counseling for a number of years. I’m no less flawed than them, no less in need of prayer……but I saw their pain, and it’s my responsibility to respond.
And now………I return to the behavior that I believe incapacitates me from interceding on their behalf.
God help me.
