Take the time; to get it right!
1 John 1:9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Get it right, with whomever you need to get it right with. Forgive whether someone ask for it or not. This is your Soul. Take responsibility. Matthew 6:12: And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Matthew 6:14: For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: Matthew 6:15: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Don’t wait on somebody else. I endeavor to keep the lines of communication open with God. Even when we have done what we need to do to be in right standing with God; someone will get offended. I can’t live for God; and not consider His people! Whether; I take the time. And acknowledge my Sister’s and Brother’s or not. It does not give me the right to ignore them. Does this mean that I beg and plead with you to accept me? No.Romans 12:18: If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. I do not intentionally hurt or offend anyone. Usually; I know when we have offended someone. Even if I “Think” that I’ve offended someone. I ask for their forgiveness. After; that there is no more that I can or should do in that circumstance. I let it go and let God handle it. Barbara; will not take matters in her own hands. God knows best. If they don’t want to talk to me, it is between them and God. Please don’t ever get outside of the Will of God to express to someone your apology. Please don’t allow someone to place a guilt trip on you. We each our responsible for what we receive. Have the right motive; repent from your heart. Let go and let God have the situation. Always, always, Pray about a situation before you go to someone. Do as the Lord instructs you to do. One of the most difficult things to do is nothing. Be obedient! Move when God says move. Isaiah 55:8: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. Isaiah 55:9: For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. We will be held accountable for our own actions. Just realize; when someone has been offended: Matthew 18:21: Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Matthew 18:21: Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Matthew 18:22: Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. That is our responsibility, no more!
