God in the midst of forgiveness, bitterness, time, interruptions

"For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."
Matthew 6:14-15 (NKJ)

Bitterness is its own prison.
Are you a victim of betrayal, resentment, self-pity, abuse ... untold hurts that keep you chained, defeated? Or have you forgiven another? Have you moved on?
You still remember the pains, but its not keeping you in bitter remorse.
You asked God for healing and He answered.
The dungeon of despair is deep and dark.
Come into the light with the Lord Jesus.


Do you have time?
Not time to do
or go
or be

But time to

To your co-workers
your neighbors
your friends
your family

To God

Time to stop
Be still

Do you have time?

If you only have time for yourself .... you have lost much.


"Continue to have faith and do what you know is right. Some people have rejected this and their faith has been shipwrecked."
1 Timothy 1:19 (New Century version)

We should never take our own work too seriously, but always have room, be prepared for interruptions, particularly when it is God who does the interrupting. Be watchful - God will block our path and thwart our plans by putting people and events in our way. It is still our choice what we do, how we proceed. Getting what we want is not what counts. God's way is best. That's why, I think, He sends us an interruptions. Even in following God's way, He may send us an interruption for us to learn by.
