Wrote this morn, then Dale and I started talking and I didn’t get it sent out. I know you’ve been on the edge of your seats waiting!! 🙂
‘So don’t be surprised, dear brothers and sisters, if the world hates you.
If we love our Christian brothers and sisters, it proves that we have passed from death to life. But a person who has no love is still dead.’ (1 John 3:13, 14 NLT)
Think about right where you are, or will be later. Think about the people you’ll be near. Will the choice of your words and actions promote hurt or healing? Will your heart choose to grow from their presence, or turn bitter? Choices.
Sometimes, being the child Father God created you to be causes you to be exiled, alienated, and shut off from others. And, there are times that to go along with the “in crowd” makes you an alien to your true self.
Dearheart, the power to make strong choices is threaded into you through the Holy Spirit. And, your Father God is keen to notice when you take the hard road because it is the right road. He does not take you or your choices lightly. Bold love yields bold results.
