Jeremiah 15:21 - I will save you from the hands of the wicked and redeem you from the grasp of the cruel.
Everyone gets hurt from time-to-time. We know it’s just part of life. But that doesn’t make it much easier. Being in physical pain and illness can be difficult, but I think it’s the emotional pain that’s harder to handle. People can be so cruel at times. Thanks be to God, Jesus pours a healing balm on our wounds and binds them up with strips of love and hope. Have you been hurt recently by the cruel words that came from someone you know? What helped you get through it or are you still reeling from the blow?
