Doing the right thing isn’t always easy. Not too long after I got up this morning, I had a specific task on my heart that I know is God’s nudging.
At first I wasn’t too enthused w/ making this phone call but then I came to the realization that it’s not about me.
If I sat back and did exactly what I wanted to do I would never reach out to this person b/c to be honest…I’m still asking God to heal my wounds and give me the strength to think the best when the worst is at the forefront of my mind.
But I’m coming to realize that the feelings I have had had to be confronted and replaced. Does this mean that I will be calling this person on the regular and making weekly lunch
dates? NO. However it does mean that the very grace God has given to me I will extend to them~freely w/o expecting anything from them in return.
So, as I said earlier, doing the right thing isn’t always easy but it is always worth it…it’s worth the freedom that comes w/forgiveness and accepting that people, situations and relationships change w/o trying to force things back to the way they were previously…
