I have seen some drastic changes take place in my life in a short period of time. My mind has been changed, renewed and set free from wrong thinking.
I recently had to make a decision with regards to friendship, no,I should say relationship, because friends don’t slander friends, right? Yes, they do! It happens because we are human and I’ve witnessed even the most disciplined leaders speak out against another friend. Well, I had to decide if I was going to confront, ignore, or choose love. I ended up spending a few days thinking it through and I decided I was gonna choose love. I realize that you can confront in love, but in this instance I decided not to. Ultimatley I decided I would treat them how I would like to be treated. I didn’t choose to move forward in some fake manner because that would ultimately show in my actions. I honestly just made the decision that I cared about them more than the issue they have of running their mouth. When you come to the realization that every one has faults and no one is without sin, its hard to stay mad.
I realized that we treat people how we feel treated under the law, (old covenant thinking) AND
We cant give something we don’t think we have. When we don’t understand the fullness of God’s grace, we live life with limitations. We tend to base our assets on earnings. We even lose our aim in life because we don’t always feel worthy to go higher. AND with that said, we inflict this on others by judging their worthiness to go higher when we see flaws!
Im glad there is only one God and only one judge because we would all be in trouble if it were left up to our “friends” judgements.
When I finally realized how much grace had been given to me, I realized I could give it with greater measure. When you are in a place that you can’t say “awhole lot” with regards to situations of life, you have arrived in “a grace place”.
These are just random thoughts in my head this morning, true blogging, who cares if it flows…lol!
