Did Joseph stay in prison or in a pit forever?
Did Daniel stay in the lions den forever?
Did Jesus stay in the tomb forever?
That’s how I know, You will not be where you are forever.
Don’t let your faith die. Don’t give up hope. Don’t let the voice of whatever you are going
through be louder than the voice of GOD’S promise.
We all go through “stuff” and it sometimes feel as if your life is ruled by it. Harder to stand
back, assess and move on. As we are dealing with other humans going through stuff. Done a
seminar once where we were asked when is enough, enough? Found some answers in a few
different situations and try to remember them, as it was lessons well learned. Yet It’s funny
how people can use the words “please forgive me” so randomly as if it is a simple hallo or
goodbye. Found myself once again amazed by humanity, why utter words that you don’t mean.
I’m not talking about a step on a toe. I’m talking about life changing episodes. Where one is
dishing out and the other on the receiving end. Receiving not what is needed but what was
served. If you are the one serving the dish, do you really believe you will feel better in the
morning. If you are on the receiving end. Take from the experience only that, which will help
you grow. The rest through it away like bad rubbish, as it is all it deserves.
A message so powerful I need to share.
Mourning may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning, Psalms 30:5
So too will joy come in the morning, should you not retaliate. Should you wonder if you won
the battle here is a few questions to ask yourself. Did my sword (tongue) draw blood(leave
a scar)? Did my actions in anyway caused another to stay up late and wonder, did I deserve
it? If you know it’s wrong, don’t ask for permission, as even if permission was given – if the
deed is sinful, even with permission, it will remain sinful.
We as humans think we can go about our ways with no repercussion, No consequences, No
retaliation. When we claim to be a good human being. We believe that we are, if we can
convince others we are. Here is an eye opener. God will not be judging you on the amount
of people you manipulated in believing you deserve God’s grace. You will be judged on how
many of your enemies you loved. Putting someone straight does not guarantee you
anything but a lifetime of sorrow. “Helping” friends with “stuff “for self-gain will not de seen
as a good deed. Keeping friends for the benefits they offer does not make you a good friend.
That one friend that has nothing to offer, is the truest friend you will ever have.
So when is enough, enough? You alone can decide.
