This is not working out

by thewallflowerchapter

This phrase has been repeating itself in my mind lately… I guess when both parties are of the opinion that they’ve put in 100% effort and are getting something less than satisfactory in return, it happens.

Harsh words are exchanged. Gentleness becomes a rarity. Communication gets waylaid by wounded pride and the cutting truth. Forgiveness is given but trust is hard to rebuild.

It’s tiring to keep heading back in with tattered hope… hope that’s supposed to shine through all these hard times but glows extremely dim now. Sometimes I even lose sight of it.

Perhaps it’s back to how unless the Lord works, we labor in vain. The last two words seem to resound much louder than before.
