Pieces of discontent

There are many times in our life when we are annoyed with others.  We feel justified.  The world keeps spinning on its axis no matter what is going on with us.

God expects us to be patient and kind and loving.  ALL, not most of the time.  We are not justified, and we all too often rely on ‘how we feel’ instead of living and breathing in faith.

Ephesians 4:32  Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

2 Kings 20:3  Remember, Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.

The testimony piece

Today I’d like to share part of my testimony with you, which – until this morning, I didn’t realize I had!  God doesn’t really work in mysterious ways, He reveals what we can handle!

The biggest source of healing in my life, has been emotional.  All of my broken pieces have been soldered back together; not at one time, but over a period of many years.  God has restored relationships and even healed memories.

The biggest eye opener for me; is that I left God behind, He never left.  NEVER.  He was always there, available to me if only I had asked.  But I didn’t ask.  Instead I let disappointment fuel my anger towards God.  Some might say that is blasphemy, but I believe more than anything, God wants our honesty, he desires a close relationship with me.  How can it be close if it’s superficial?  God has seen me at my absolute worst, not many of us have gotten that close to another human being.  “Warts and all” a description to sum up what God accepts from me.

Share your testimony, here or with another.  Let the story of your life be a ‘saving piece.’
