I bet most of you are thinking that the title of my blog today is just a title. No I did wake up this morning and began to cry. I cried for quite awhile and I can't even tell you how much better it made me feel. Sometimes our hearts have to cry..God gave us that emotion as a release. It is not terrible to cry, in fact, it is very good sometimes!!!
After the fact I sat down and pondered why I did cry..Most people think I am happy all the time..must be my starlit personality..LOL right!! I think it had to do with a very unfair thing that has recently happened to my family. God does not like un-balanced scales. He is a fair and just God!! When there is evil going on He says, "Vengeance is Mine" My family has been treated unjustly and I guess I wanted to make it right and inside I was angry. I realized that God said He would take care of it and yet this time it affected a lot of Gods people..because they did not realize they had done this. As unfortunate as it is..We must go to these people with gentleness, and meekness and explain this to them. It won't be easy and yet God said we must. When someone is doing something God is not pleased with..It is our duty as Christians to help them see the error of their ways and get right with God. Now I am not talking about judging..NO that is up to God...but we must learn to do some of the hard things for the Kingdoms sake.
I guess I am writing this to help me remember that although it is much easier to just let sin pass by and hide it under the "DON'T JUDGE LEST YE BE JUDGED" scripture..Sometimes we really need to say the thing that hurts the most..in love correcting one another because we love the brothers and sisters we have in the church!!
Jesus tore the money changers up in the Temple..Why? Unjust scales and cheating...I know from that scripture alone I can confront someone with prayer and love!!!
That is why "I Woke up This Morning and Cried"
