Depending upon; how much of yourself; you have given; you will; feel the pain to that degree!
I tthought; nothing could be compared to the hurt a spouse could inflict upon you; I stand corrected.
The pain; that a child; can inflict;:is much worse.
Or maybe; because I have now experienced it.
My worst fear; would be to lose a child.
Maybe; until we experience something; we do not really realize to the intensene of the pain.
I think; just me; if you can survive the loss of a child; you have made an accomplish!
Realizing, we cannot accomplish; anything without the Lord.
Philippians 4:13 states I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.
This is what is on my heart this morning.
Which brings to my mind; how much; we hurt Jesus; when we are disobedient or act contrary; to what He has taught us.
I am one of those people; that believe; there is a lesson to be learned in everything; God allows to happen in my life.
And until; I learn the lesson; He wants me to learn; I will continue on that path.
It may not be the lesson that other people want me to learn.
It is what God wants to teach me.
When; I look; at Jesus, He had compassion.
Could that be the precious element that we are missing; when we deal with one another.
I have learned; that God and I can deal with anything together.
It is difficult; for Barbara to deal with harshness;
Yet, we are told in the scriptures;
2 Timothy 2:3 Thou therefore endure harshness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
It is only by the Grace and Mercy of God; that any of us can continue.
Remember; Quitting is not an option! Most of us learn:
1, By what we have seen.
2. By what we have been taught.
3. By what we have experienced.
Maybe; that is just me♡
At any rate; none of us can go back and change the past; no matter how much we may want to; or no matter how many regets we may have.
We must choose; to move on.
We must forgive.
I do not believe; that means to stay in a place; where you are being neglected.
I realize; their are people in abusive relationships.
I am not addressing that at the moment.
When I think of how Christ; suffed; bled and died for me! And then for me to sin it is a horrible thought.
Have I done that at times?
Yes; I am ashamed of myself.
Yet, He forgave me.
I am convinced; God looks into our future and prepares us!
I forgive everyone; that I feel has hurt me.
I know; that if; I DO NOT FOTGIVE; GOD WILL NOT FORGIVE ME!
Nothing and Nobody is worth me giving up spending eternity with Christ.
I want to be forgiven; so I forgive
Note: What I had gone through; with the loss of my husband; has helped prepare me for this:
