Tucked into Abrahams biography is the story of Hagar, a young Egyptian slave with whom Abraham had a son named Ishmael. Hagar stood out because she was woundednot physically, but in ways that were as emotionally and spiritually painful as any injury to a body would be. Some wounds were provoked by her own bad behavior, but others were inflicted by those who considered themselves Gods people.
Anne Graham Lotz too has been wounded by Gods people. Some wounds have been deeper than others, some have come out of nowhere, and still others have been provoked by her own behavior, but all of the wounds have been deeply painful. They seemed to hurt even more when the wounders wrapped their behavior in a semblance of religion or piety.
As Hagars story unfolds, you will discover that wounded people often become wounders themselves. While Anne identifies with the wounded, the unpleasant reality is that she also identifies with the wounders, because she has been one, too. She knows from experience that wounding is a cycle that needs to be broken. And by Gods grace, it can be.
Many have had similar experiences. And perhaps you are among those who have been so deeply hurt that you have confused Gods imperfect people with God. Maybe you have even run away from God as a result. Or perhaps you have been a wounder to the extent that you are living in a self-imposed exile, believing you are unworthy to be restored to a warm, loving relationship with God or with Gods people. Whatever your hurts may be, Wounded by Gods People helps you to begin a healing journeyone that enables you to reclaim the joy of Gods presence and all the blessings God has for you.
God loves the wounded. And the wounders.

The book would have still been good had you not admitted that you yourself have "been there, done that", but reading it would have been like reading a textbook on woundedness in the body. Because you came through the experience an even stronger believer, I can, too!

DJAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Wounded by God's People: Discovering How God's Love Heals Our HeartsDecember 31, 2014DJAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book by Anne Graham Lotz gave great insight on being wounded and being a wounder, which allows one to put their hurt, something we all experience, in proper perspective so that we are not bound by our hurts and we can more easily glorify God despite our hurts. If you are open to it, God can use this book to change your perspective on your wounds, allowing you to separate your hurts from the one who hurt you so that you may still love regardless of how hurt you have been.

At the time, I was preparing a devotional about her, and I found this book to be very helpful.
