Accepting Splintered Wood….or How to get back on your own path.
I look backwards… I see the horrible things like a movie reel I would never allow my children to watch.
The rating would be V for violence and R for restricted.
And as crazy as it all was and is to recall… if that man came and asked Him for forgiveness…. it would be given?
Everyone on their own path…and He loves them more than I do…so much more than I ever will.
So how much more can I just forgive?
Is forgiveness the key to the “next thing”?
When we forgive each other are we really saying …
“we accept the cross….no we really accept it…
we believe it…the power of it…
the point of it… the price paid… our price paid…so much heaped on that splintery alter”
and when we carry out forgiveness… are we saying”Yes to Him.”
And when we hold out? When we can’t forgive are we saying He didn’t do enough
it wasn’t enough…
no, not enough for this…
no, this needs extra death,
no, this needs extra blood.
Right now… just forgive.
Let them just be on their own path…you don’t have to walk with them.
Release them from your little tight fists which pound for more restitution…for more death…for more blood…because that is the only payment….so either it was or it wasn’t enough.
So what is your conclusion?
Did He pay enough?…or for this do you need another cross.
You will release yourself.
What happens “next” can only be found on your own path with Him.
So I hit send and look for what is “next”.
