Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Behind the Happy Face
Behind many a happy face hides a hurting heart, and maybe that describes you. The happy face helps you live in a temporary denial of the pain inside, and it keeps other people from knowing a you that you're afraid they might not accept. Like the beach ball that you push farther and farther under the water, the deeper you bury it, the higher it's going to go when it's released. You can't bury the real you forever.

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - Only an Interruption
Life's partings are tough, especially when someone we love slips into eternity. Death tears us up inside, and the grief seems almost unbearable.

Here's what Jesus said in some of the most unsettling words He ever spoke, "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord' will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.

Away from Me" (Matthew 7:21-23).
