Vengeance... isn't mine.

the odd thing about being close to God and having Him take hold of your life's steering wheel is this... you get convicted, right away. RIGHT AWAY. it's like the Holy Spirit sends you shock waves automatically. well not really asap, but hmmmm... more like, once you think about it and pray for it... if it's the wrong thing, then you're quick to know it.

ok, ok... so vengeance isn't mine. it's the Lord's, and if life is unfair... heck, if others are unfair to me, then so what? that's how life is, and that's how they were brought up to be, think and act. the thing is, K, you're different. i'm different. so K... WWJD? what would Jesus do? will he say... "an eye for an eye, buster!"... "you hanged me on a cross, so let me see you die!"???? errrr... no. in fact, Christ died on the cross for us sinners, in spite of the fact that we sent Him to die on the cross. He died for you and me. so what business do i have punishing others for their being unfair when God is always fair anyway?

so there. yea, yea... convicted. and ouch. this means, no news blackout. and well... last night, when i stood there by the glass window, i felt God's presence. i felt Him holding my hand. and yes, i am grateful that He is my Lord, and that He will never leave me nor forsake me... even when the going gets tough. and the going will get tough, but His promises are clear-cut. i will reach the finish line. it doesn't matter how painful it will be to get there, what matters is, i will get there. :)

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." - Deuteronomy 31:8
