Yesterday afternoon I had hit my limit with people. My tolerance for stupidity and lack of common sense maxed out for the day, I decided to relax, check facebook, and read the news. This did NOT help, and the tears started flowing. I texted my Mom that I was losing faith in humanity and that the world is headed in the wrong direction. She responded, “or maybe it’s headed in the right direction, closer to Jesus.”
I said, “I think I need another missions trip to renew my faith in humanity.”
Then I went on facebook again, and I read somone’s post: “How can you expect God to use you as a beacon in the world, if He cannot use you as a candle where you are?”
Today I keep hearing you on Life 102.5 talk about the Kindness Challenge.
Ok God, I’m listening! Time to change MY heart and outlook!
Forgiveness is not an easy process in general, but it can actually be especially difficult to forgive ourselves.
