Love as He Loves
Question??? Have you ever considered that the person that you are the quickest to judge and have the hardest time being near is the same person that is connected to your destiny? Not only is this person connected to your destiny, but also connected to your breakthrough. Sometimes there is a need to release a person from the clutches of our messy attitudes and seriously realize that every woman in our life is in our life because God has placed her in our life for His purpose. We must learn to be still and listen for directions on how to proceed through these circumstances.
We must really, really realize that we are Daughters of the Most High GOD, Creator of ALL, and commit ourselves to a life of love. Love for all, not for some! It is then that we will truly realize that everything outside of love is not of God. We must submit to God and stop creating stuff in our own mind that is meaningless and of no consequence. If God has shown you a person, believe me it is not to judge or condemn them, it is to love them, and to pray for them. We are to be a Sisterkeeper to all of our sisters, not just those who are like us or those we like! Remember we all have a past and a story (Romans 12:3-8). We should always remember that God has a plan for our life and if He has allowed a certain sister to cross our path, then that must be a part of His plan.
So many of us have experienced hurt and have been broken. So many of us carry shame and guilt, never really getting to the root of the pain. So, I pose another question; Are you willing to look beyond the hurt or will you only see and respond to the result of the hurt? Are you willing to take the time to develop a trusting relationship with a sister and help her get to the root of the anger, hurt and pain that she is carrying and responding to? It can be so easy to judge or label a sister based on what we see…but what about taking the time to understand the hurt behind the behavior? And I’m going to go ahead and say it…What hurt have you not addressed or are you still carrying around that causes you to judge so quickly?
We must stop negatively judging ourselves and others. We must learn to extend grace and forgiveness to ourselves and to our sisters. Judging in this manner is meaningless and a waste of time. God has created each one of us with a specific plan and purpose. We all have a walk that is ours alone. Let’s celebrate each other and encourage one another in our walk. We all will at one time or another walk through a valley. We must be careful not to turn on each other during this journey. We really should focus on understanding the valley experience and build our faith, knowing that Our Father will lead each one of us through. How sweet would it be if there were Sisterkeepers in position waiting to cheer you on along your journey and to celebrate with you at the end? What a blessing it would be if we could trust each other enough to share our experiences in an effort to encourage others and in doing so bring honor, glory and praise to Our Father for the breakthrough. Here’s the thing! We Really Need Each Other!
We are royalty and God loves us so much! Let our prayer be to love as He loves.
