Consider the Source {when a friend hurts you}

Hi There,

I know it’s late — it is after 11:00 PM my time as I write this to you. I figure some of you are up and having a little quiet time after the kids are asleep and some of you have already gone to bed. In any case, I am posting this even at this late hour.  I’ve fought with technology all evening just to get this video from my phone, to my computer and then on to YouTube. I am posting this tonight if it kills me!  Lol! 

I hope your evening has gone smoother than mine has. 🙂

Here you go – I’m sharing a few tools to help us when our feelings get hurt by our closest sisters. It happens in every friendship at one time or another. I hope they are as helpful to you as they have been to me.  As Lysa TerKeurst says, ‘Imperfect Progress’ is what we are after – not perfection.


PS. And speaking of imperfect progress…thanks in advance for grace as you view my amateur video. I am learning, but I’m not there yet!

  1. Thank you Laura for sharing your experiences and perspective in such a warm, honest and open way. God has made you wise and generous with your wisdom.

  2. Thank you for sharing those tools. It is something I will hopefully remember to use in the future. Friendships should not be so fragile that an off-handed comment could tear it apart. Knowing that my emotional state may be contributing to the hurt will help me “consider” both sources. What insight!

    1. Thanks Denise – the tools are things I put into practice imperfectly, but I am so much more self aware than years ago. PTL!

  3. Thanks for sharing this experience with us! Great insight and wisdom. It always boils down to replacing lies with God’s truth and replacing negative self talk with what God says about us. We must do this if we are ever going to grow in our faith. I so appreciate your transparency and willingness to share practical ways we can put scripture into practice.
