Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. Isaiah 60:1-2
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, Ephesians 3:20
*Take Control Of You*
Sometimes we can make life really hard for ourselves when we have no control over others in how they act or react. They do one thing and we think they should be doing another thing, they react one way and we think they should react another way. We think they should change their ways, and that could be true, BUT really we should change our ways as well, “Not letting people take our Joy.” Because there are okay with being who they are and we’re not okay with them being who they are. 1st Corinthians 13:5 says Love is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it does not keep record of wrongs.
There is freedom in letting go of people that know the way and have given their life to the Lord, but continue in their ways that isn’t pleasing to God. Letting go is one thing and cutting them off is another, the Lord let us go our way, But we can always come back to him he doesn’t cut us off where we can’t go back to him, and that’s how we should be showing Grace and Mercy. You must continue to show the Love of God and step back always keeping the door open so they can come back to you. “In doing so that gives you the opportunity to allow God to work through you to speak into their lives.”
You are watching them and they are watching YOU.
We can’t fix them or change their hearts only God can. God isn’t through with them yet. And he not through with YOU, Keep the faith and stay focus.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is Patient, Kind…
