It has been a few weeks since I've given my heart to Jesus again and ever since I have been living full out for Him. I use every opportunity I possibly can to tell people what He has done for me - not only did He die for my sins, but He has saved me from myself over and over again.
A week ago I, as a 24 year old, was bullied - in a means by people who are spreading malicious rumors about me. One thinks this only happens in school, but wow have I got news for you! Strangely I was incredibly hurt by this, I think anyone would be - but instead of retaliating I stood down and have not tried to defend myself coz as a friend told me "Silence is the only response to a fool".
A few weeks ago, right after giving my heart to God, I prayed that He will show me who my true friends are... This last week I have found out who is willing to stick by me through thick and thin, even if it hurt, God still answered my prayer. He showed me who wants to be in my life, who deserves to be in my life and who I need to let go of.
I have become a pro at letting go. That is what Jesus expects us to do, we need to forgive as He forgives us our shortcomings, our sins. We need to let things go.
Mark 11:25 - "But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too." (NLT)
I fell, but now I know where I stand.
