It was wrong in so many ways, and hurt you deeply. It should never have happened. But it’s up to you to not let it keep happening. Take its power away by bringing it into the light with someone you can trust. Starve it to death by forgiving. Even if they never know, forgive for your own sake. Release them from your hate, so God can heal you in his love.
You’re not defined by lies, wounds, rejections, or betrayals. Jesus is healing, strengthening, blessing, and transforming you. You should never have had to deal with this, but you always have access to all the grace and truth you need to overcome it.
This is a brand new day. You are new. Take a step forward in that newness by listening to what God is saying about who you’re becoming, rather than falling back into what pain has been lying you’ll always be.
“Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a completely new person. The old life is gone, and a new life has begun” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
