I want to apologize to anyone that I may have hurt with my last post!!! I am sending you (((HUGS)))!!
I never meant to hurt anyone, but knew when writing that I could easily with the way I chose to type things. I really shouldn't have even written the post. Now, I am wondering whether to delete it. It was more something to flesh out with God because it was about my feelings. And we all know how feelings can go!!
It really took me off guard that I was affected the way I was because normally I am not. I guess this is a good lesson for me on finding my way with new people. :) I tend to focus on the kiddos I have here, and I usually recognize that God puts everyone through different trials and my trials are no worse or no better than anyone else's. They are different and they are for me. My trials do not make me better than anyone else either.
I believe God had to remind me today of those things! I am not entitled to anything. This is the journey I have been called to walk and everyone else has their journey that God has called them to walk, and who am I to compare them!! How arrogant of me!!
Abba Father, may You forgive me for my arrogance and hurtful words. I know words can do just as much damage as punches. You have even told me that my tongue is sharper than any two-edged sword. Forgive me for letting it wag away. May You tame my tongue and change my heart. Mold me into the woman that You want me to be. Help me to be there for others in their pain, and never to think that my pain is greater. Lord, You are so loving, may You instill some of that lovingkindness in me. Thank You for Your forgiveness!!! Help any that I have hurt to be able to forgive me. And may You bless them and hold them close and bring special comfort to them during this journey of pain that they are on or have been on. Thank You for Your mercy and grace!!! In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
