    I am so surrounded by people who endured this pain that I can become desensitized to it. It is a difficult pain to hear – to not sings songs to it and, at the same time, offer them the simplicity that God is enough for any pain the deranged of this world can inflict.

    For those desperate enough to be relieved, that simplicity is sufficient. For those who are not yet ready, offering them the truth of salvation is perceived as a slap in the face.

    I am glad he found you on that phone. I pray we all hear what you said about needing a new heart. I know I did.

    Jesus was moved by suffering and he perceived the suffering of masses of people. He did not become desensitized. I pray I don’t either.

    “Change my heart, oh God, make it ever true…Change my heart, oh God, may I be like you.” That’s my prayer daily…thank you so much for posting this. I know I needed to “hear” it!!!!!

    Needless to say my emotions ran the gauntlet while reading this. Truly heartbreaking.

    I lean on this passage from the bible, it’s in Luke 12: starting in mid verse “11” where is says do not become anxious about how or what you should speak or say for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you should say”. Pastor, I have to think that the Holy Spirit was with you and guided you to say the right words that reached Wesley and what he needed to hear.

    Having asked GOD for a heart some 2 years ago, I know the feeling of it being crushed when I hear of the hurting that is in this world and I/we are only one person and there is so much pain and hurt.

    I will sure keep Wesley in prayer and you as well for GOD to continue to guide you and your words so you may continue to help and be a blessing to others.

    WE thank GOD also for all those that do contribute to keeping Transforming Truth on air; it reaches so many, including us as well for without it, we would not have found Meadow and now with the interned feed, just see how many more it will reach.

    As I read this account and recall your recounting of it at lunch Wednesday, Ephesians 5:1 came to mind. “Watch what God does, and then yourdo it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents.” (The Message).

    Like Father, like son.

    Please excuse my errors. Guess I am getting old.

    What a heart-rending blog…about this man living with pain so deep..reaching out the the perfect person to confess his
    terrible childhood and pain. I too cry for him…..and I cry because I am such a fortunate lady to have been raised much differently….I haveatpainful rememberances but never to thay degree………………………..Jeff, I believe it, you were the person the God led Wesley to. Of all the people on T V that preach God – God led him to you…you were the best person that our precious Lord appointed. God knows what he is doing. I pray “Open my eyes Lord to be of help to the hurting hearts.”
    Transforming Truth has been an eye-opener for me. I spoke with a lady Tuesday – she is hurting…..I plan to call her today again.
