http://bible.us/Eph3.19.ESV Letting God's Love Overcome Past Hurt
I had some rough years, and a lot of it was because I needed God to heal me from my past of being abused sexually, emotionally and verbally by my dad. Through a lot of tears and difficult moments of choosing to forgive instead of getting revenge, God brought me through, and He's also used my testimony to bring healing to the lives of others. When God heals you of past hurt, He not only wants to help you, but He also wants your experience to be a gateway through which others can experience the same healing.
You know, we can all hurt in a lot of different ways. Loneliness, disappointment, rejection, fear and insecurity all have the ability to hurt us deeply. I couldn't move beyond the hurt from my past until I received and experienced the love of God and allowed Him to turn it all around.
Before you can move beyond your pain and learn to love and forgive others, you have to experience God's love. When dealing with your past, remember that God loves you deeply.
and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
