At times we may feel like we’ve ‘crushed our own spirit’ by our sin or addiction, we may not even understand why we’re doing what we are doing, but God does.
He knows when poor judgment is the result of our brokenness and pain. He knows every tear we’ve cried since the day we we’re born. He knows every abuse we’ve suffered and every painful memory we’ve stuffed.
He knows we have valid reasons for our fear, anger, sadness, addiction, and pain. He understands why we react to things one way when we should be responding entirely differently.
Often times our past circumstances render us powerless over how we react and interact today.
But God is able to restore us. He gently calls us into accountability. He understands our reasons for our actions, but they are not excuses. He is with us on the road to healing when we humbly call out to Him and allow Him to lead the way.
