Last night my heart sank. I heard some of the worst words. I asked Jesus for his grace, strength and protection. He gave me a friend, comfort and kept my brain occupied. But, the image continued to haunt me and questions taunted me.
So, He gave me healing and peace through His Word.
My verse of the day: “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;” -Luke 6:37
The pit in my stomach, just like that, has been removed. The pain is washed away. I am free through His power.
It sucks, it hurts so bad to be betrayed, to feel like everything we were was a lie. I want to curse at him and be bitter but what will that do? The past is set in stone and I refuse to carry around the pain and heartache.
Forgiveness can be a selfish act. Jesus teaches us to love our enemies and free them of their guilt. He promises the greatest gift through this: salvation.
Lord, I am so grateful to know you.
You answer my prayers. You listen.
You know my heart.
I need you.
You take care of me when I do not deserve it.
Thank you for loving me.
