I’ve taken some time away from writing here. I just couldn’t find my words.
I was reeling from the world.
A few news stories have broken over the last weeks, a man fallen, a woman formed. Stories where people have laid their hearts on the line, exposing themselves to others.
It wasn’t the stories that broke me, it was the responses. So called Christians tearing apart another. Words of disgust, anger and in cases hate. Preachers using their platforms to spew judgement.
I’ve had to take a step back. Move away. Just taking time spending it with our father. Letting his peace wash over me.
I’ve searched my bible,
Read and reread the words of our Saviour over and over.
I didn’t find judgement.
I didn’t find disgust
I didn’t find hate.
There in the words of Jesus
I found understanding
I found love
I found compassion.
I’m tired of hearing peoples opinions on others.
Hearing what they seem to believe is right or wrong.
Each and everyone of us have our own pathways to walk. Our journeys to make.
As a Christian my only response should always be love.
It’s as simple as that.
We may not always understand or even agree but we have no right to judge.
We live in a broken world.
Let’s not be responsible for the breaking of others.
Let our faith shine out of us as we love upon on this world and upon others.
Let those who are weary come to us and let’s be the light Jesus asked us to be.
