Matthew 12:11-12 New International Version (NIV)
He said to them, “If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? 12 How much more valuable is a person than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”
GO AFTER THE ONE ~
I love how God says: How much more valuable is a person than a sheep!
I have heard many stories of life and how people get hurt in church. They vow to never go back again. I said this myself years ago. The words of others broke my heart and I didn't want to be like the ones in front of me. My story goes deep and it was God who came after my heart. I couldn't sleep at night and he spoke to my heart. Let go of what you can't change and change the things you can. Be the one who makes a difference and allow God to change you from the inside.
Luke 8:16-18 New International Version (NIV)
A Lamp on a Stand
16 “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.”

Each of us have made mistakes of life and need a second chance
God sends people after us without us even knowing it. Just a text message from someone, a phone call or maybe a divine appointment in a grocery store. We see people not by accident but God's plan. God does not want you to stop serving him or making a difference for him. It can take time to get over something or even through it. You ever heard someone say, "There is a light at the end of the tunnel?" That shows me that there is hope ahead. Trusting God in unknown situations of life, can bring you peace. It's time to rest in knowing a new day brings new thoughts and actions. Purpose this day with good actions and rest in knowing God is able. Those two things brings my life peace daily.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
