I would be very Thankful for your Prayer Support again and I also would like to share why I have not been Blogging for over a week, although at first it was not intentional, my Computer was being Serviced but later I decided to take some more time out to Rest and Pray as I was feeling very hurt and not able to concentrate and so was not responding to all my Commitments with Blogging and at Home.
I have been abused for my Faith much more than once even by my Mother and family and although I rejoice in my Unity with Jesus who suffered greatly for us, it does hurt. Jesus was known as a Man of sorrows and He grieved and we will too.
Our Emotions are God given, they are not Sin but what we do about them can be, like holding onto Bitterness and Resentment and seeking Revenge which is like mixing Poison for those who have hurt us but drinking it ourselves, it eats away all the goodness in us like Cancer.
This time I have been hurt by those I accepted as my New friends and Cared about, yes I’m a very responsive, sensitive and an emotional Woman. Although they are not Christians I still valued them as People of Worth as I do with everyone and so I looked for the good in them to encourage. I also remember my Closest friends were once Strangers before they walked into my Heart and I always have this Hope with New friends too.
Yes only God knows their Hearts and the Future and one day we may be United in Christ Jesus and spend Eternity together in Heaven with Him. But I was lied to by one of them which I did not accept as OK the same as I don’t accept all Sin if done by me or by anyone else, God tells us not to accept evil as good, of course we do not judge others by our Agenda but we do by His.
This Woman than tried to justify her Lie to me and to my other New friend and later to others that we knew. What she was trying to hide by lying would have affected not just me but others adversely too, which is why she had lied, she knew her advice had been wrong and would now cause problems and yet she did not warn us. Because I did not accept her Lie, I was than Slandered by both of them and called a Bible Basher and worse.
I had Prayed before for an opportunity the share the Scriptures with them but except for sharing the Candy Cane Story with their Christmas gifts, mostly I have only shared about the Wonderful Love and Compassion that God has shown me even when I was an Atheist, well I was in my thinking but not in my heart or I would still be one today. I was deceived as a young Teenager that I Evolved from an Ape and that our Abba Father in Heaven and Jesus who was my Best Friend and the Bible were just made up but Thankfully Jesus our Shepherd rescued me, a very lost and hurting Sheep.
As a Christian it is also Sin when we have doubts about God’s Truth but we continue to reject Scriptural Help from Him. It is not Sin to have doubts but it is to reject the Confirmation of God’s Inspired Words for our own or others fleshy understanding and than to share it causing confusion and doubts in others, some even take out God’s Words in the Scriptures or add to them seeking to deceive, which they will answer for unless they Repent and put right the wrong they have done.
2Timothy 3: 17 All Scripture is given by Inspiration of God and is Profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness: That the Man (and Woman) of God may be Perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all Good Works. (KJV)
As they say every Cloud has a Silver Lining, I would like to share something Wonderful that happened this week too, which I am still amazed about……
Because of being trapped just before Christmas between my Scooter and a glass doorway after it suddenly accelerated , I now feel server pain whenever I bend down, the Doctor said my Mussels are damaged but they will heal in time.
During this last week I noticed that between the cracks in the Pavement on the Driveway the weeds had grown up again and it looked very untidy and as it’s a Duplex and I’m not the only one who uses it something had to be done. So I Prayed and although it did take time, I had no pain and could bend down and pull out all the weeds even in the garden and along the fence too, yes the pain returned later but Wow when needed I could do the impossible, we don’t just believe in Miracles we depend on them and yes they are happening all the time even if we do not recognize them, Praise be to our God of Love.
Please Pray for me now to Continue to Forgive and to Love those who have hurt me including these Woman and those whom they have gossiped to, one of them also abused me a few days ago, after I had asked if she and her Partner would like to come to Dinner.
Pray that they will all come to their Senses and Repent as I did when faced with God’s Reality, that their eyes will be opened as mine were and yes Pray as you feel lead too. It is my Heart felt Hope they will also be set free from the Sinful bondage they are in but of course only God knows their Hearts and if they are His and this is the same with all of us which I will share about in my Next Post.
What did Jesus do when People were hurting, we remember that He cried with Martha and Mary even knowing that Lazarus would be alive and with them again within a short time, He shared their grief in Love and so renewed their Faith.
Thank you for the Love and Compassion and not just for Ron and myself but for others I have asked you to Pray for recently and over the years, including my furry friends and yes we have seen some amazing answers to these Prayers.
It is True when people are hurting as confirmed below and as you have done, we show Love and Compassion offering our help when needed and wanted, not counting the cost.
Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s Burdens and so Fulfil the Law of Christ.
Romans 12:15 Rejoice with them that do Rejoice and Weep with them that Weep.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ The Father of Mercies and The God of all Comfort; Who Comforteth us in all our Tribulation that we may be able to Comfort them which are in any trouble by the Comfort wherewith we ourselves are Comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
Thank you again for your Prayers and for your continued Faithfulness to Pray for all those who have need of your Prayer Support which I often read about on your Blogs and yes God Hears and Answers our Heartfelt Prayers according to His Good Will for us and those we Pray for.
Christian Love and God’s Blessings – Anne.
