One of the most important things we must acknowledge about forgiveness is that it is a process that occurs over time. It doesn’t happen overnight. To mend something that is broken can take a lifetime to fix. Humility takes courage. Healing is part of that process and we cannot rush it.
And while it may not occur like we think it should, no matter how small the humble beginning, thank God for it. A humble heart cannot be seen from the inside. What flows from it will manifest through our actions on the outside.
With anything that has a beginning, the end will come. We may not be able to see what’s in a person’s heart but God does. Don’t be quick to judge the efforts of others. God looks at our hearts; not what we do when others are looking. It’s not what we do but the manner in which we choose to do it.
Pain is not something we can cure overnight. The healing process must occur in steps. We cannot rush it. Love covers a multitude of sins. Be slow to convict. Support one another through the journey. Be a blessing. No matter how big or small, count it all joy. Thank God for humble beginnings! #ItBeginsWithYou
Be Blessed! – JD
