Last week God gave me the opportunity to minister to a friend who I haven’t talked to for a long time. I buzzed him just to ask about some common friends we have but I believe the Holy Spirit led us to a conversation that will change our lives.
What will you do if a friend shares with you something about the sins he’s struggling with? What will you say?
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” – Romans 8:1
I saw this video and I believe this is the message God wants us all to hear.
YOUR LIFE IS NOT A JUNK.
YOU ARE NOT A JUNK.
GOD MADE YOU HIS ORIGINAL MASTERPIECE.
SO, YOU THINK YOUR LIFE IS HOPELESS?
THINK AGAIN, I HOPE THESE PROMISES FROM OUR GOD ARE ENOUGH TO BRING YOU BACK TO YOUR KNEES AND STAND UP. AS SURELY AS THE SUN RISES, HE WILL COME TO RESCUE US.
“Come, let us return to the LORD. For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us. He will revive us after two days; He will raise us up on the third day, That we may live before Him. So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.” (Hosea 6:1-3)
“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds …Great is our Lord, and mighty in power …” Psalm 147:3
“My child, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh.” Proverbs 4:20-22
As Christians, we all know that life is not a bed of roses. Some of us are still caught up from the thorns that left our hearts scarred. The thorns which we chose to hide from others and even from God. Today, May 28,2009, I now consider,as one of the highlights of my christian life. A lot of ugly and deep thorns have been pulled out by God.* sigh*
I had this very meaningful conversation with my mom this morning. To share this openness with her is really God’s grace. How many young people nowadays are able to share their feelings and thoughts to their parents face to face? I know a lot who couldn’t and who wouldn’t.
Some young people think that opening their hearts to their parents would only make things worst. GUILT , REJECTION and CONDEMNATION leave them to this hanging state. What they don’t know is that GRACE AND HEALING are waiting on the other side of the door.
Brothers and sisters, sharing what’s in your heart to someone you really love and trust is one of the steps towards healing the wounds of your past.
Surrender to God First and He will put things back to their proper places.
