Thankful Life - August 26, 2013

August 26, 2013

People say hurtful things, sometimes out of anger - sometimes because of their past - sometimes in love and correction. It has been a lot of years of allowing myself to fall into hurt over words. This weekend, I had a revelation and am being moved to evaluate all things according to God... in the midst of a firestorm of words, I must put on His shield... allow the filtering, protection and discernment of the Spirit to look through the unnecessary words and fight through to the helpfulness of the underlying message.

I don't think it will always be 'easy', but it is completely possible - the Holy Spirit is our helper in all things toward God... this one, He can fully do and is capable of guiding.

"The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit."
~Psalm 34:18 (NASB)

"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to 
you; not as the world gives do I give to you.
Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it 
be fearful." ~John 14:27 (NASB)

I love people. My life has been spent seeking new friendships and helping others. God's gifting is being worked out into His plan for me. I am excited to share insights of His leadings and lessons.
