Good morning brothers and sisters. Yesterday was not a day that went as planned. And that is ok. I had changed plans for someone and they decided to back out. That was ok too. But it was the hurt from someone that cut to the very core. And when I am hurt, I tend to completely shut down. I run the scenario through my head and then I get angry. Then I want to take out revenge or defend myself. But thankfully God got a hold of me through a friend, whether they know it or not. They will know it today. But their words were like Jesus speaking to me. And then when this morning came and I was in prayer, I gave it to God and you know what, He took it. He will work on my insides and make me whole. And believe it or not my very first scripture was this: Proverbs 14: 29. "He who is slow to wrath has a great understanding. But he who is impulsive exalts folly. I want to be slow to anger. I want to be slow to wrath. Sometimes when the love ones cut you to the core, it just means you love harder. But there is something that I have truly learned, I don't always have to sit and take it. I can walk away. You know Jesus didn't force and doesn't force people to love Him. He gives them a choice. You either do or you don't. I have to learn to accept that and dust the sandals off and move on. So today, I am rising up to who God says I am and not letting the hurt keep me down. Have a blessed day! And rise up child of God, rise up!
