August 3, 2008 reflection of daily devotional

"For everyone who asks receives; those who seek find; and to those who knock, the door will be opened." – Matthew 7:8

Don't curse your hurts. Don't nurse your hurts. Don't rehearse them. Disperse them! How? As Max Cleland, author of Strong at the Broken Places, suggested, you can disperse your hurt by looking for another open door. When you look for the open doors, your back is to the closed door. And every time one door closes, God opens another. You disperse your hurt when you reverse it. Reversing it means you turn it inside out. You turn the problem into a partner. You turn your scar into a star. And you turn your frustration into a fruitful experience.  Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.
