lesson learned

Today's Verse from “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” (Colossians 3:13)

I know better than to trust. I know (and tell others) that people will always fail you, not because they want to or mean to. Sometimes I forget that myself, hence why I was a little upset yesterday.

God is a good God, He is a mighty God, and He has created us for relationships, with Him, and with others, although, with others there will be hurt, and that's ok.

I think it's when we hold on to that hurt, and we can't let go is when it becomes a problem. Holding on to something yucky just doesn't make sense, and really, why would you want to?

Would you hold tightly to a thorny stick? Probably not, because as you hold it SO tight it continues to hurt, and it will open your hands that are already wounded.

So letting go is best. Grace and Forgiveness.

You are a Wise Gal, Miss Margie. Believe me, I understand how deep the hurt, when it is someone close...letting go is not always easy. But lessons learned help us
grow...and that is a very good thing.

We are in the process of removing a thorn bush from our back yard and it's a slow process unless you want a great deal of pain. Sometimes letting go is like that too ... a slow process that lessens the chance of being injured.
