It is hard to want to listen to God when I sense he intends to say things I don’t want to hear. Roger Barrier

Our woundedness restricts our openness to God and others. We are fearful we will be hurt again by new relationships. Slowly but very surely, unless we learn to handle heartache correctly, we become embittered and resentful cynics. We lose the joy of being alive.

When I get to heaven, I don't want to watch Jesus spew my sheep out of his mouth. No, I'd rather have a select few behind me and be able to say, "Jesus, these are all I had left, but they are crazy in love with you. They sacrificed all of their lives to listen to and follow you." Francis Chan
