hinking back to yesterday’s worship service,
I am often in awe of how God reaches out to me, so specifically and personally. Yesterday we had a communion service. I noticed it when I walked in . . . and that was ok . . . until someone sat near me that was a major distraction. Ugh. I had to forgive – I knew that – but, God, now? And then our pastor prayed – specifically about the distractions around us and in our lives – even mentioned in his sermon about how we may have felt when we saw the communion set-up. Of course, it passes through my mind of, am I unworthy to be at the Table when I do have some resentment in my heart – and Pastor stressed, over and over throughout his sermon, how we are to REMEMBER HIM. I did forgive – and it was easier than I thought – and in another way was rewarded later with it in an unusual way. I am in awe of how God does inspire me and touches on me so directly at times. These types of things carry me on through the rougher days, and definitely inspire me.

Forgiveness toward a particular person is a tough thing for me right now. I am praying. I am staying away from the person because I feel like her actions are intentionally cruel. Pray for me. Thanks.
Forgiveness can be a process . . . we think we’ve forgiven, and then a reminder comes up and we have to start all over. I understand that with someone hurting you. You do have to have boundaries. For me, it was someone that hurt one of my kids – and the mama bear comes out in me!!! 🙂
