Another moment in life when God allows a glimpse of your weakness. Rather, the depth of your weakness. I had a verse come full circle for me. To background the verse in my own life: I’ve identified with these words in I Corinthians 13, “For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when […]
The Lord sure has a funny way of teaching us lessons regarding humility. It isn’t the easiest of lessons, but it can prevent a world of let-downs and hurt. Lots of people wonder why they go through some of the situations that they go through, or why the Lord allows certain things to confront them. Could it be that he wants to hold up a mirror to bid you to take a closer look at that small speck on your spirit that is causing you to hurt others, to communicate harshly, to run out of patience, to storm out in anger, or to give up in only the beginning. For some of us, using the things or persons we love are the ways in which He chooses to reveal these specs to us; it’s the only way we’ll listen or pay attention or recognize it.
Know that this is not a time to get angry with the Lord or condemn yourself, but more of a time to allow for conviction to take hold of our hearts. Such conviction should yield repentance and a heart full of pure thankfulness that the Lord, in all of His love and grace and mercy, decided to look upon your spirit to purge it. During these moments, I am so full of thanks and praises simply because He stopped me from being the person that I would essentially be without Him. Realize that we’re better only because He is who He is in us.
I shared Hannah’s post (above) because her story captured a portion of the essence of what I call ‘love…testified’. Her transparency inspired me and I hope that you would check it out and allow your heart to be encouraged. Thanks Hannah! 🙂
Later guys, and as always, please please please leave your comments and/or questions below. I would most certainly love to hear from you! Love always, xoxo
