Greetings and Salutations,
I have been away from the blog for a minute.Many of you know that I have been participating in the 40 Day surrender fast with Dr Celeste Owens. It has been more than beneficial to my spirit man and to my flesh. I have had to put the flesh under subjection. It has allowed me to think clearer and to hear from God in an awesome way. It was one of the best moves I made since I’ve been in Alabama.
Tonight I was watching a video by Micheal Hyatt. He has this wonderful program called Platform University where he teaches you to use different social media. However the video on you tube was about dealing with offenses. Something I know too,too well.
There was a time in my life when I was not able to deal with offenses. I was so thin skinned that it was crazy. I was a professional grudge holder as well. If you offended me in any way, I was going to get you. I would say-When you least expect it, Expect it. It was insane.
I read a quote when I lived in Maryland that I have never forgotten.-Conflict is inevitable,But combat is optional. Which means there will always be some type of conflict,offenses or criticism. But you do not have to act out ,act ungodly,unseemly because of it. God told us in his word that offenses will come. He also told us that we are overcomers through Him that loves us. Use the energy from the offense as fertilizer for your growth in the Lord. No I am not saying that they will not hurt, sting or burn. But through the Holy Spirit and His guidance and leading you will pass this test also.
Through the patience of the Lord, I am no longer a grudge holder. I learned through trial and error how to let go and let God. I learned to forgive and keep it moving. My prayer for you is that you submit that area of your life to God. Allow him to mold you, shape you into the best YOU that you can be. His greatest desire for you is to become an image of His dear son Jesus Christ .
