To her surprise I said I can't either, stunned she said "what are you talking about I see you do it all the time." I responded with the truth, I said "I don't do it, the Holy Spirit does."
She was awaiting a sermon by the look on her face but instead I lifted up our conversation as I always try and do and simply said; "I am human like everyone else, I hurt, I cry, and I get angry, but instead of it controlling me, my day, or my life I lift it up. For in order to truly forgive one has to love unconditionally, and though most of us try to do that we are human, and it is impossible, however, our loving Father in His glorious wisdom and everlasting love knew that we would need the Holy Spirit dwelling within us in order to survive our trials on earth; and not to just maintain but excel in our purpose to spread His eternal, unconditional, all forgiving love."
Our all-knowing Father made us many promises and fulfills every one, when and only when, we remember to ask with His words and with true conviction.We knew this world would be our greatest challenge as it is not our home, but the attackers
We also knew through Gods word that just as our Savior was persecuted and unaccepted, we as is brothers and sisters would face those same challenges, but they are so much easier to handle when we surrender and lift up all aspects of our daily life.
Not just a bad situation or an illness, or a circumstance, but everything from parking to shopping, and everything in between, because only God knows what, where, who and when He will need us; so if we lift everything, than we can be sure we will be ready and worthy for Him to use us as His light at any given moment.
So as we approach the up-coming weeks, I pray that our Father give us all the strength and wisdom to lift, speak, and heed the Holy Spirit in all things. I hope the poem below brings you hope and strength and understanding. God Bless us all and may He continue to wrap us in His loving embrace. Love hugs and prayers Patricia xx
Do We Love As God Loves?
When we love our God
we truly love ourselves
enabling us to love others.
By loving others
we are sharing our Father's love
unconditionally, without judgement,
for it is everlasting.
When we acknowledge our gift of the Holy Spirit
we are capable of endless giving
and true forgiveness not just towards others
but of ourselves.
This is only attained through our eternal spirit
our loving mirror image
made possible only through faith
and knowledge of our Fathers promises.
We believe, therefore we know
Because we know
we can spread God's light.
God's divine plan:
love one another as you love yourself
as we continually strive
to walk in His likeness.
