You know, God never ever fails to amaze me. Hence the word amazing, huh? I have been in prayer for some time concerning a situation that has been in my life for 25 years now. It involves a man...doesn't it always?
My prayer of late has been, "Lord why do I hang on,cling to this man, the memories, the thought of what-if? Why can't I let him go...get on with my life? Please, God, either take this desire from me or fulfill it."
Well, let me tell you two things:
1. God doesn't care how He gets the message to you.
2. He doesn't care who He uses to bless you!
Two things happened yesterday that were like kicks-in-the-proverbial-rear. The rear just so happens to belong to me. Alana and I were parallel-playing, she on her computer making graphics; me on mine blog hopping. As often happens, she had the music going. So here we are going happily along when I stopped because a song had gotten my attention.
Here is what I heard:
You've got to get yourself together.
You've got stuck in a moment
And now you can't get out of it.
Don't say that later will be better
Now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it.
Ouch! You know how they say what we most dislike in someone else is a direct reflection of something we dislike in ourselves? Ahem...well, I used to get so aggravated with someone in my life because they were stuck in the past...in their glory days...and not, in my nasty opinion, living in their todays. God, forgive me my judgemental hateful attitude. Lord, let me see my fualts and not someone elses. In the future when I feel the need to judge any one help me to look within.
I went back to my blog hopping and then is when the second thing happened. After checking my RSS Feed to see who had posted lately, I went to one of my regular hops and this is what I read:
Can’t forgive the jerk, forget the past, or forsake your bad habits? Christ can! And he lives within you.
This is what I saw:
