Lately, this one thing has been weighing on my heart. I have noticed both online and off, that many people profess to be Christians. Yet these same people still go around talking and thinking about things like many Non-Christians do. This truly saddens my heart.
Please, note that I am not saying I don’t do these things at times. I do. I also do my best not to. No one is perfect and if we were I’m sure our name would definitely be Jesus.
I have noticed many professed Christians talking in negative language about others who have ticked them off. I have noticed others speaking of situations that are possibly negative, yet never shedding a Christian light into the “what if it wasn’t like that” aspect of thinking. I have seen in my own family, members telling other members “sometime life is better without that person in your life”, speaking of what’s considered to be unwanted drama in their lives. I have even seen sisters turn against sisters and brothers against brothers over such things.
My question is: is this what God really wants? Is this thought process of negativity, of turning against one another, of NOT supporting decisions, thoughts, love and caring relationships through thick and thin, truly what God wishes of us as Christian beings? Does God want us supporting each of these negative thoughts with a “yes I see it your way”? OR Does He wish for us to see life and love through His eyes?
My answer is to take a step back and truly view the situation. Truly attempt to see Life and Love through the eyes of the Father. View things as He wishes us to see and don’t take the first response as your answer. Some things are better left to prayer.
God doesn’t wish us to turn our backs on one another. He doesn’t wish us to JUDGE one another or to LET GO of one another. He wishes for us to see each minute thing, each burden through with love and support and caring of one another. By all means, He KNOWS we are NONE perfect but He asks us to STRIVE to be our best. Yet HOW can we be our BEST when we are busy being our worst?
Stop what you are doing today and really let these thoughts, these statements I have made, sink in. Let the TRUTH of God’s LOVE sink in. He loves EACH OF US REGARDLESS! Why do we NOT LOVE each other in the same way??? Why do we allow the DEVIL to work in our lives, instead of allowing God to do His work instead? Today, I am making the conscience decision to LET God WORK in my life, as it should be in all our lives. God Bless!
