Sometimes God whispers to us, and sometimes He shouts. Today is one of those shouting days...I .guess I really needed to hear the message.
During my morning time with God as I visualized sitting at His feet, I asked God what I needed to do concerning a certain situation. I just did not know what to do anymore.... What came to my mind were these words ~ "But you do know what to do." I sat with that awhile trying to figure it out....."I really don't, God" was my response.....BUT After spending more time visualizing and meditating on these words, "Forgive" came into my mind. One word. Forgive.
A short time later Joel and I had our morning devotions together. We read from 3 different daily devotional books and spend time reading Max Lucado's book, "Outlive Your Life". As we began each devotion today, either the scripture or the devotions itself were ALL about forgiveness. When we opened to the 3rd chapter in Lucado's book the verse was about forgiveness of sins. Could it be any clearer???
Forgiveness. I need to forgive others and I need to forgive myself. This will bring healing and change into my life and it seems I better start working on it right now. I got the message God.
Sometimes God whispers, but when necessary He shouts~ loudly! Over and over!
Thank you Lord for Your patience, Your love, and Your forgiveness. As I bring others and myself before you and openly and willingly repent and forgive, heal me in the deep places of my soul. In Jesus name, Amen.
