I know that I’ve been through some tough situations in life, but sometimes it’s hard to believe how quickly things that can get blown way out of proportion, especially when assumptions are made and conclusions are jumped to. I would like to ask all of my fellow friends (in real life & in the blogging world) to please pray for a situation for me. I will not give all the details but I am caught in the middle of a situation between friends & I don’t know how it’s going to turn out. My prayer is that God will shine His light down on all involved & help guide us in the way we need to go. Unfortunately, not only are adult friendships on the line, but children’s friendships, as well. Satan has been working on this for quite some time & I’m sure he’s dancing for joy at all the heartache & turmoil that he has caused so far and will continue to cause until this situation is resolved, if it is resolved at all.
James 1:5 says:
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” (NIV)
I’m praying that God will give us all His wisdom in this & that we will be forgiving, loving, & nurturing towards one another, not harboring anger or hurt. I know it’s not easy to forgive someone who has badly hurt you, intentionally or unintentionally, but I pray that forgiveness will be granted & healing will begin. We are all God’s children. If His Son is willing to lay down His life for ours to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, I believe that the least we can do is be willing to listen to one another with an open heart & mind, ask forgiveness for our sin against each other, & freely & willingly give forgiveness to those that have hurt us.
