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.
Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of Billy and Ruth Graham, is the president and CEO of AnGeL Ministries, a nonprofit organization that undergirds her efforts to draw people into a life-changing relationship with God through his Word. Anne launched her revival ministry in 2000 and has spoken on seven continents, in more than twenty foreign countries, proclaiming the Word of God in arenas, churches, seminaries, and prisons. She is also the award-winning author of ten books, including her most recent, The Magnificent Obsession.
Arlo5 Stars Out Of 5Relevant for todayMay 10, 2016ArloQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Ann is right on about being wounded by God's people! I see it continually as I work with women in my church and elsewhere. For some reason...we think we are to use God's Word as a Sword against one another! NOT so! We are to provide healing ointment...a word of comfort or challenge...and always the word of how much, HOW MUCH God cares for the wounded.This book ranks high in my estimation of hitting the "nail on the head" concerning our treatment of the wounded in our church community....
Mandy Farmer5 Stars Out Of 5For ANYONE who has been BULLIEDApril 19, 2016Mandy FarmerQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0We tend to think that God's servants are above being hurt; 513qnib9ecl-_sx334_bo1204203200_but that is just not true. As a matter of fact, I would venture to say that most ministers of the Word are hurt at least once in their ministry. I so appreciate Anne for being vulnerable and opening up to us about her own life while she teaches us through the life of Hagar on how to deal with hurt.
I had not ever taken much thought to Hagar and her son but God did. It is in the story of Hagar, that we find the name for God, El Roi, The God Who Sees Me. He cares so much about each one of us and the plight we are in AND he is watching over us.
What I learned was the God Who Sees Me cares deeply for His own. He sees each and every one of us. He loves us so much. He has a plan for us but He also allows us to make our own decisions. So He waits for us to call out to Him to rescue Him.
Studying the plight of Hagar has helped me face my own situation. It has taught me to look at where I may have failed. IT has warned me to not be a wounder myself. It has taught me to forgive regardless of what the other party may do towards repentance and reconciliation.
This book would help anyone who has been hurt not only by the church, but by anyone. In this age where we seem to think everyone is bullying everyone else. I think we need to start looking at how Jesus handled those who bullied Him. "Forgive them, for they know not what they do."
If you have ever been hurt by someone, read this book.
Gwen5 Stars Out Of 5This is real life.March 31, 2016GwenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was able to identify as a wounded person and as a wounder. I had to ask God to forgive me for pass things I had not thought about or did not realize how I acted towards others. Reading this book was cleansing. It helped to open my eyes about holding on to past hurts, being angry with people long dead, and being prayerful about what I say and do in the future.
