Galatians 6:9-10 New International Version (NIV
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Going through things in life changes us. We either become stronger people or bitter people. When I was a small child, I didn't know about Jesus. I had a friend named Connie who took me to her church and it was there that I heard Jesus loves me. A little kid who wanted to feel love and have friendships in life. It became so important to me to know that Jesus really loved me. It would be years before I knew who Jesus really was to me and how I could count on a power I never knew before. A teenager who was broken after seeing my dad died in 1973 and had just graduation high school. It would be almost a year of anger before I felt to know more about Jesus.
I AM A PERSON OF ~ a heart of good intentions.
I attend a healthy church with wonderful people for over 17 years now. I have developed friendships and continue to meet new people. Dealing with people you meet all types of personalities and people who believe a little different than you too. Each of us should carry the character of Jesus and go about doing good. Kind words and actions are important, but not everyone treats us the same. I have seen people get hurt in church and never want to go back. I can relate to that story too because I was one who got hurt in my late 20's and learn a lot of how people act. People are people and don't always carry that character of Jesus. Just because someone says they are a christian doesn't mean they are an example of Jesus. I hope that makes sense to you. There are others in life who do act like Jesus and do their best daily to live for him. Life is full of all types of people and each of us handle things different.
Today, I hope you handle your freedom in God with carrying hands. Examples throughout the Bible are ones of failure and getting back up. Others to give it all for God and their stories still shine for us. People like Job who went through the hardest of times and still loved the Lord with all his heart. No matter what, Job trusted God. I can see myself through hard seasons of life too and trusting the Lord has been my only option. It's been the option I wanted and I know God is able to handle my life. After all, he created me and purposed my life to be one of greatness. I believe we can see great in our lives daily and lean not to our own undersigning at times.
My thoughts and prayers continue for you, your family and friends. You can count on God and see the blessings in your life in all seasons. Even thought it might be hard, he is right there with you. Happy new day!
