I can live without anything or anyone, but I cannot live without God!

Right or Wrong

I'm not right and I'm not wrong.
Neither are you.
We each shuffle our thoughts through the lens of our own experience.
We base our opinions on where we've been, what we've seen,
and what has been said and done to us.
But understanding what is true is beyond our limited comprehension.
Understanding each other  is like looking though the other  persons glasses which makes things blurry and may give us headaches as we strain to see.
Only compassion, love, and fearlessness to share can lead to clarity.
Acknowledge each others perspective as just as valid as your own.
Trust, and ask the One who is the Truth for wisdom and understanding.
Then maybe we can learn from each other and grow to be much better than on our own.

Love Thy Neighbor

My sweet neighbor is hurting. She loves God and has given herself to be a light in a dark spot in order for others to find truth. So it is so very hard to understand why God is allowing all the hurt and hard circumstances in her life. A child that is running, literally, away from facing his problems, is at the forefront right now. Yet there is a string of pain behind her. I want to help, but have no clue how. Prayer almost seems a lame excuse for doing nothing. But I will pray and pray and pray.....and trust that He's got this and everything else in His control. All things work for the good of those that love Him.

And God Smiled

Once, not too long ago, I posted this comment on Facebook:
"Everything I believed in is a bunch of trash."
That caused quit an uproar in a few people and probably cost me my job,
yet I have come to truly believe that it made God smile and angels dance with joy!
The keys to my freedom were about to be fit into the chains that kept me bound in Satan's twisted distortions of truth.
I have found the path that is oh, so narrow and traveled by so very few.
It is possible that I might have made it to heaven because of the childish profession I made in Jesus, however, it is more likely that I would have been one standing with jaw dropped shock as Jesus pronounced, "I never knew you."
When true humility becomes a part of your understanding of yourself and you see yourself as God see's you, nothing is ever the same. Nothing!
John 8:36
