Life holds many things for us. There is a balance of it all, work and life. What is head for me and which way do I go. Standing at the cross roads of things and needing to make right choices. I have found even in my right choices, I might have made a mistake. Being kind to one person, brings sorrows to another person. Wow, it just should not be this hard.
Isaiah 41:10 New International Version (NIV)So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Stop and realize that even Jesus was human. He walked this earth and needed to listen to his father (God). There are times when we just need to listen to God and balance in our lives. We are so busy with work, school, friends, family, and everyday life. Stopping to listen to God and needing his strength to hep you. He promises to uphold you with his righteous right hand.
I MAKE MISTAKES ~
In doing good, there still must be balance. You must take care of yourself and not always try to fix something. Each individual is accountable for things in this life. We do make mistake but God forgives. He doesn't forgive for us to do the same thing again, but he forgives us over and over again. Not all humans will forgive us or forget it but Jesus does. It is often hard to live with knowing that someone is upset with you or won't forgive you. That's when you turn your thoughts to God and allow his forgiving love to enter your heart.
Matthew 18:21-22 New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant
21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”
22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Now that is a lot of forgiving huh? Seven times, but seventy-seven times. In our lives, we might find it hard to forgive one time. But according to the Bible, we must. God word speaks, we listen and move into action. Yes, that world BALANCE comes into place. We balancing our time and our will. Knowing that God's plan is bigger, better and promising.
Life is short, please don't get stuck in regrets of life or stop moving forward in life. There must be a balance in all things and taking care of you is so important. We might become so busy that we take care of everyone else and not ourselves. God wants us in good places of life and count blessings. It might be hard to see how far God has brought you, while in a hard spot of life. Remember the sign above that reads works, life and balance. There are also other signs that we take as well.
In think of forgiveness, forgive yourself and move forward! I just felt like somebody needed to hear that. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
