Now on a personal note...
I shared a couple weeks back about some personal stuff I was going through & I wanted to give you all an update. As the days past & I continued to pray about the situation God revealed some very cool stuff to me...I was at church that Sunday & we were singing the song Mighty to Save by Hillsong, an AMAZING song by the way, and God really started to speak to me through that song. I was singing these lyrics: "Everyone needs Compassion, a Love thats never failing, let Mercy fall on me, everyone needs Forgiveness, the Kindness of the Saviour" & God revealed to me a crazy thing. What I had gone through had nothing to do with the other person or what had happened it was all about me. How would I react, would I choose to be more like Christ or revert back to my old ways. Would I lash out in hurt or would I choose to extend compassion, love, mercy, forgiveness, & kindness as Christ would & has poured on me. I knew at that moment I had chose the right way to respond & I felt God really speak to my spirit & say "Well Done". I have been going around the same stupid mountain for so long it was amazing to finally get it right! I am so glad that God is so faithful & patient with us. He will give us "second chances" a millon times over until we finally get it right. I know we all have those "mountains" or areas where we really struggle to become more like Christ. I really struggle with keeping my mouth shut & listening for the Holy Sprit to speak to me so I can say what He would want me to say instead of something that is rooted in my hurt or anger. In this sitaution I didn't hear anything so I just stayed quiet & silently prayed. Kind of like the old saying "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything". I know God will continue to work with me on this area but it was nice to see that I am making progress. Praise the Lord!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
Smiles & Blessings,
