Family members hurt us. Friends betray us. Fellow Christians deceive us. But Jesus provides a path through the pain--the Lord's Prayer.
In "The Wall Around Your Heart," Mary DeMuth shows you that you "can" reach wholeness and healing in the aftermath of painful relationships by following the road map of the Lord's Prayer. You'll walk through story after story of hurt people who are led through biblical truth into amazing, life-sustaining, joyful growth.
Life "is" hard. People can be mean and petty and awful. But they can also be amazing and beautiful and sacrificial. God is good. He is faithful. You can trust him with your relationships. "He'll send people to call out what is hard in your heart," Mary shares. "And that's a gift to you."
Allow God to access the wall around your heart. Dare to say, "Tear down the bricks, Lord, whatever it takes." Pray first. Ask for bravery--for yourself and for others. Risk engaging despite your hurt. Seek the shelter of Jesus. You don't have to resign yourself to your wounds You can rise above the pain. You'll usher in a new life--an openhearted way of relating to others that expands the kingdom of God. In the process, you'll draw closer to Jesus, be healed, and become an agent of healing to others.
