Hot tears flowed down my cheeks as I realized what I done. I hurt her. It was clear.
I messed up.
My big heart makes me want to just make things all better for people who are hurting.
Because I want to help. I do, I do, I do.
Some things I can help with, some things may be better helped by praying and just being available rather than trying to fix a situation. Okay, probably all things.
The servant’s heart, the worker-bee in me, wants to DO something. And I am learning to fully trust when I pray, that God actually hears me and isn’t waiting for me to jump through hoops before He acts.
Because He already has a plan.
I can be a part of it yes, but when my anxious thoughts takeover, how is that going to help anyone?
That prayer I just prayed?
Yeah,… I need to learn to give God time to work.
I tried to help, but maybe I said too much. Maybe I jumped the gun. Maybe it just didn’t come out right. I don’t know, but I do know in my faithfully bold move to actually try and bring truth to a situation, the timing and amount of truth may not have been right.
I am trying to do this new thing, where I quit holding back out of fear – which is where I parked my camper for years. With this new way of living comes great responsibility and stewardship of my words though.
I long to always point back to God in all I say and do.
Do you think I always ace it? No way Hosea.
I wish, but then again if I aced life each day, why would I need a Savior?
I ran into a wonderful blog today. A bright and cheery, faith-filled community that just so happened to be prompting us to write about this very topic: When we fall. Fail. Oopsy.
I am praising God there was forgiveness and mercy bestowed in my own epic fail. I wept and prayed and He answered. He restored us and in that moment, I saw what God was longing for in us adults when He said in His Word to be more childlike.
I thought, wow. Just like kids playing then arguing, forgiving and moving on, so it sort of seemed to be for us.
So yeah, I fall, but I get back up.
