Would You Do It? Could You Do It?

This is a great question that I read yesterday, asked by Jim Staney.

How many of you would remind God of how much He loves your enemies? How many of you would be willing to actually ask God to remove the charges from them; to not punish them; to forgive them, for they know not what they do?

Years ago, I couldn’t have done it but today I can and it brings me peace, peace that was one adrift in my life. Peace that God has now anchored in my soul. What about you?

She said I was the troubled child, the bad one, the disrespectful one, the disobedient one, all while the boys were getting arrested and bringing drug and alcohol addictions to her door steps, robbing her house, stealing her car and emptying her bank account, but I was the bad one, “Nothing but trouble since the day I was born” were the words that came out of her mouth.

Then the day came when I found my voice and I started to speak out, spilling her secrets, exposing her shame. Family members didn’t have to question because the pictures she painted and the lives that they lived told their own story. They told a thousand words of truth. A thousand words of truth where Mercy cannot rob justice.

Suck It Up > Put an End to the Nastiness!

I love, love, love this vacuum cleaner. I’ve actually had it for several years now but wanted to wait to do a post on it to see how it held up since it promised (and still does) the mighty power of “never” losing suction plus it came with a five-year warranty. Yes > Gotta love that!
