Creating change is a hard thing to do. Many understand it, not many can do it. We want to love people who have hurt us and we want to be blessed by those around us. How can we change our opinion of someone or something if we have not forgiven the brokenness that’s within them? Many say how can you not forgive if God forgave you. I believe what is true is that you cant forgive until you understand and have excepted the forgiveness that God has given to you. Each of us has been forgiven Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2Corinthians 5:17
God has chosen to forgive us despite our sinfulness. We are new! Take Joy and believe in the Grace that is freely given to us.
I was once asked can I forgive someone who has hurt me from past sin? I say its not can you its when will you? When will you choose to except grace and intern freely give grace? Hurt people, lost in their own grief and pain, surround us. I believe that remaining hurt is sinful and selfish. We can only choose to be hurt because freedom is here and is now. I believe all sin is rutted in selfishness.
I have experienced this in my own life. Deciding to be hurt and not wanting to forgive the thing or person that hurt me. For some resin I felt broken and somewhat driven by my hurt. It drove me to feel something deferent then what I was feeling and that I can say is almost a motivating factor for me to expectance what I call a drive to feel broken. I don’t like it but it’s a truth that truly hurts. See remaining hurt actually hurts us more then choosing to forgive.

Truth is what we deem to be true. Each one of us on earth has a perspective that we would consider true facts. But can one really know the heart of another man? Is it possible for me to look into the soul of a man and know what he thinks or how he feels? I believe the answer is no! Not because we don’t know the person well or that we don’t love them if we can’t, I’m only suggesting that God in his all knowing knowledge knows each one of His children so very well. So In order to understand the heart of one man should we first try to understands Gods heart? I believe the key to knowledge is Christ dwelling within us.

Just finished a morning shift @starbucks
From my point of view life is like a beach. It’s so long seemingly never ending. We know there is a end but you can’t normally see it. If I was on the beach now I would want to walk for a long time staring up at the stars or early morning sun rise. Letting my heart expand and wonder allow my self to feel something besides what I must do tomorrow. Letting all my worries and fears disappear. Reality can’t be dismissed but perspective can coexist. We can choose to give in that we might not reach the point of needing to give up. I don’t know if you follow me but it’s what I’m thinking now.
To cool for school!
It’s been a good day. Full of conversation, coffee, Tobacco and scripture. Finishing it with my sweet wife. Im stuck in a cloud full of small blessings that turn to big ones.
