Forgiven

on_my_knees_by_ademaguy

There is a new song that is out there that is called Forgiven by David Crowder if you have not heard it you so need to look it up on Youtube.

This song speaks of how it felt to hold the nail in his hands as he nailed Jesus to the cross, it was cold. The weight of the hammer in his hand and the look on Jesus’s face of forgiveness. It is a wow moment for me each time I hear this song because it is my sin that did nail Him to the cross and He would have done it just for me.

There are so many times that we forget that we are forgiven that we have the honor of forgiveness if we have asked for it. Psalms 103:12-13 tells us “As far as the east is from the west, so far has He remove our transgressions from us. And the our Father has compassion on His children.”

Are we able to do the same for those that we need to forgive?

No, we are human and can not forget the wrongs or unjust actions that have been done agaist us. We are able to forgive those that have done these acts and need to for our own well being and happiness.

It does not even matter if the person knows or acknowledges you feel the need to forgive them. In many cases they may have no understanding that you feel wronged by them. Also some people are just not able to speak of the past.

So what do you do with these feeling? You let them go! Forgive and be done. It is really between you and God anyways. He wants to heal your heart and make you whole. When you carry the burdens of unforgiveness in your heart it is a encumbersome heavy load that will weigh you down.

Well that is all I have for you today, love yourself and others. See ya next time.

When life blows you over.

Over the last few weeks we have had two of the dead trees in our yard blow over from the high wings that we have been having.

At first you may be thinking how sad that is to lose a tree that was planted more than 20 years ago, and you would normally be right.

The things about these trees is they are dead. Dead to the point of the roots are starting to come to the surface and the bark is falling off the tree. This is how we found these trees when we bought the house here in Ridgecrest. The house had been empty for a long time and without care and water the trees could not make it through the hot summers alone.

Even with a great tap root after years of drought they could not make it without life giving water.

I liken this to our walk with the Lord, we can have deep roots that have been our support for many years. We may have been walking with the Lord our God for most of our life time. If you stop drinking from the word of God and eating from His table you can become like these trees dead but still standing.

The only reason that the trees have come down now is with all the water we have had this winter the ground is saturated and the storms knocked them down.

If we become complacent in our walk with God we risk being blown over in the storms of life.  Make sure you take in God daily to stand strong.

Yes it is a good thing the trees came down, we would have had to spend a great amount of time and energy to get them out ourselves. In life we do need to rid ourselves of the dead things that are no longer bringing forth fruit.

Thanks for reading. See ya!
