Growing Pains 5-15-2015


We have all been or felt mistreated.  Here's what I remembered:

I have mistreated so many people who tried to help me.  It was my pride.  You may say: Now I'm trying to help someone and feeling very disrespected and mistreated. I realized this: I need to remember that about 10 years ago, I did the same thing.  I am no better than those who are mistreating me.  God is showing me how prideful I was and who I thought I was, but God is showing me now through my own eyes today what I really looked like back then.   I thought I was perfect but I was in many ways out of shape, immature, and getting on people's nerves..but I was growing and many people needed patience for me. Now I need to learn to drink this cup today because I so easily forced others to drink my cup years ago, now I need to drink what I had also so easily given to others.  Lord, help me to take it and grow through it.  Help me to cry out to you for help and for strength to be stronger.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
