We have all had experiences of being hurt, wounded, betrayed and let down. As sure as the sun rises and sets, we will have similar experiences in the future. Life is not about avoiding unpleasant situations. It is about making a profit from them. What if every potentially damaging situation was really a shortcut to a brilliant experience of Jesus? Instead of being wounded we would become Christ-like? Through His blood and sacrifice we do not have a right to be wounded; we have a right to be healed!
