Inflation….well heres my 5.56 and two cents worth.
What would God have me do? I feel the need to pray for so many. I get overpowered before I get 3 people prayed up. So I started a list and prayed through the list and then the list got so big I prayed over the piece of paper. I keep asking and hoping that God will show me a way to be able to figure this out. I don’t want to leave anyone out.
Love your enemy, Ok I try to do this. Today I am aware of a sad truth. It is harder to continue to have affection for a family member who is continually harsh and unloving, than to love your enemy. I have prayed on many occasions for a person who was wicked to me, ask God to sauve whatever the cause of the hurt that made them strike out. But a beloved family member who you should love and should love you? Do I have to love them then? That just doesn’t seem right, it is so not fair!
God says to me in a small voice this morning, “I love you, I forgive you, I chose to forget all the times you mistreated my family”. “Come be loved and let My love pour out of you, when yours is all gone”. Forgive that one Lord? – That one that has let me down and you down over and over – that one?
How many times have I had to stop and remove the timber from my eye? So many that I have nearly built a log cabin. Its “Me” – I am the one who needs forgiveness. Its God’s family, the beloved family member is God’s child. I am God’s child, I will follow Gods lead and forgive “Me” too. Keep me in your prayers as I keep you.
