I was recently challenged to forgive someone who hurt me deeply. I honestly did not want to forgive this person. I honestly wanted this person to be tied to a stake and burned slowly. However, the Spirit of God, which stills hovers within me..say NO..FORGIVE-VENGEANCE is MINE!!
I told the person that I will forgive them because I want to remain in right fellowship with GOD. If it were left up to me I would still be trying to tie them up and set the stake on fire.. Tell the truth do you any of you feel this way? Have any of you ever wanted to just smash the hand of the person that stole from you or cut out the tongue of someone that lied on you?? Tell the truth.. I know some of you have felt this way..
So I must be honest and say that as I move forward the devil continually tries to lasso me with pain and bitterness…pulling me backward to that place deep within the abyss. I will pray and fast if I must to break free because this evil one is not worthy of all the energy needed to remain bitter.
There are such better things to do with all the newly found energy I have from working out..
