My Christian Walk.
I wish that I could learn a lesson and then be done with it. I wish I could master some of the hard things about the Christian life and then be able to check them off my list. It doesn't happen that way and today I don't like that.
A situation happened to me a few weeks ago and now forgiveness is what my response needs to be and I don't want to forgive. The situation is so tacky and bizarre that when I shared it with Carl, his comment was, that it is almost funny except that it happened to me.
Here is what I keep telling myself. I am thankful for all the forgiveness that Jesus has extended to me and I can never out forgive Him. I am thankful that He is working in my life and working out all the 'rough edges' so to speak. I need to look to see where I have offended others because I am far from perfect. I need to just laugh and see the humor in bizarre situations. I have too much time on my hands if I have time to sit and dwell on when others have wronged me.
I am struck by verse 6 of Romans 8 which says To set the mind on the flesh is death but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
I plan today to set my mind on the Spirit and I know that I'll have to do it again and again and again
I am sure I'll be here again and again and again. I am thankful for the wonderful forgiveness that Jesus shows me repeatedly.
