Dear Readers,

      I am inspired once again, by the Holy Ghost to write this particular book based on “Hurt”.  If you have never encountered a deep hurt from someone it will be difficult for you to understand this book. 

     Experiencing hurt can cause physical damage to the mind, body and spirit.  It is difficult to get pass if you don’t have God in your life or get some type of counseling.

A deep hurt may even bring suicide thoughts in a person mind.  Some may contemplate and other may just actually carry out the plan. 

     In this day and time people are struggling with all types of issues, which cause the mind to become weak.  Bitterness is taking over and so many are experiencing anger, strife and malice because of a deep hurt they feel is unexplainable.  We must be careful of the words that we use.   They could hinder or help someone.  Once words are spoken they cannot be retrieved and the damage has already been done.

     Remember the old slogan that we used when we were children, which said, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm me”.  Well, I am here to tell you that is not a true statement because words actually hurt.  In my last book, “A Bitter Disease Called Unforgiveness” I talked about sharp and bitter words. 

     I would like to encourage you if you have experienced or maybe experiencing a deep pain or hurt in your life, it is time to let it go before it corrupts your mind, body, soul and spirit. I beg you to go to God in prayer and ask Him to help you to overcome these obstacles. They are not healthy and will eventually start tolling on your emotions.  If you are not careful the pain will cause unknown wounds to decay in your body.  I am a living witness... I pray that the Anointing of God will fall upon you as you read this book through the power of the Holy Ghost.  

God bless you and be encouraged…

"When Hurting People Hurt" will be release in January 2017.
