“I used to do that, but because of ________, I just can’t do it anymore.”
“I guess I’m going to sit this one out. My heart can’t take it anymore!”
Maybe you are hiding behind anger, unprocessed trauma, addiction, pride, or unforgiveness. You may find yourself running from pain as an adult-somedays; it may feel like you’re just trying to find yourself with the pain. Perhaps you are hiding from God.
