Dear brothers and sisters in Christ…
Thank you so much for your support over the years. April has been an amazing month. Change in the air. Problems going away.
Good for the ministry, good for the office, and good for the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus is slowly pulling me out of the muck and into the sunshine of his everlasting, unforgiving, and always there love. I am so thankful for a defeated enemy. God fights the battles for you if you let him.
I have changed so much just in the last 6 months.
Let me give you this example. I was in a hurry to hit Safeway at 9am this morning on the way into the office and I cruised all around the parking lot several times looking for a spot for my truck. After almost ten minutes, I realized that the ONLY spot available was not much of a spot. Some truck had pulled into the spot the wrong way and was “over the line” about two whole feet on my side, and had parked at an angle with no consideration for anyone else.
I had no choice so I parked there. Because of this truck, my truck was over the “other guys” line.
When I came out with my groceries twenty minutes later, the truck that had parked wrong was gone, and every one was glaring at me. “Is this your truck?” they claimed. As a result, there had evolved a small parking jam because someone was trying to get into the same spot that the truck was in at the wrong angle, and everyone saw me parked and it “appeared” that I was the one that had parked wrong, and as a result everyone was angry with me and I met disgruntled people when I arrived and they were shouting out obscenities to me.
I did something that I had never done in that situation. I apologized and asked them for forgiveness. I slowly went into my truck and left with a smile.
Ya know, God is teaching me….
