He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now (1 John 2:9).
Boy, there are some people I would love to hate, but I can’t. I want to be in the light. I like living my life in joy unspeakable and full of glory.
If I allow hate to live in me, even for VERY GOOD reasons, I can’t live in that light. I have to take that terrible thing that someone did to me, put it on the altar of heaven, plead the Blood over it and let God handle it.
I can’t even go back and check on the altar to see if God sufficiently punished the evildoer. Either I give it to God or I don’t.
I don’t have to restore that brother to the position he had with me before, until he repents and asks forgiveness for the thing he did against me, then I must restore him.
What I have to do is dance my way into the light and not even think about what was done against me. It’s now God’s problem, not mine.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
