Good morning, RedeemedOne,
There are tender moments that come your way in life to which you give your all. And, even though you know the end will be bitter, you do it anyway because you love with everything in you. There are those who can, and those who aren’t able to. They have their reasons. Leave them to their own journey, it’s not about you, even if they try to make it that way.
I soaked up a little wisdom yesterday from one of my dearest friends, “Ang, you can’t transfer your value system to others and expect them to respond the same as you. People do what they do .”
So, where do you go after deep betrayal? Where did my Christ go? He drilled back down into His soul’s foundation, to what He knew to be so true and solid that He was willing to lay His life down for it.
Take note, Beloved.
From His example, I’m
learning to warm my heart again, cool my thoughts and scale back down to the place I’m able to respond to just nearly anything return to His presence. No matter the depth of the hits and the hurt … even when they make you out to be a monster as they scamper in desperation to cover their shame.
That’s their journey.
Sometimes, the people we try so hard to hang on to are the ones on a mission to keep us from reaching our God-ordained destiny.
Anchor back in to what you know to be true.
Enter into His presence. Know this, your Creator can and will use even the worst situations for His glory.
Anchor into His presence.
