“Nothing anyone can do to you can injure you unless you allow it to cause a wrong  reaction in your own spirit.” – Amy Carmichael 

“Watch out that no bitterness takes root among you, for as it springs up it causes deep trouble, hurting many in their spiritual lives.” – Hebrews 12:15

When Corrie Ten Boom was young she fell in love with a young man, and was head over heels in love with him. But he broke off the relationship and married one of her good friends. She was devastated. Nothing hurts more than rejection, having somebody else chosen over you. When she got home, her dad said something very wise to her: “Corrie your love has been blocked and he’s married somebody else. Now there are two things that you can do with a blocked love. You can dam it up inside and hold it all inside and it’ll eat you up – or you can re-channel it to something or someone else. I suggest you live a life of love by meeting other people’s needs.”
