Did you know that when you carry “the Bible”, Satan has a headache, when you open it, he collapses, when he sees you reading it, he loses his strength, AND when you stand on the Word of God, Satan can’t hurt you! I received this in an email this morning and it really struck a chord with me. This is who I have not been in the last almost two weeks. On May 21st I was judged very harshly for something I did or said. This person decided on his/her own that the reason I said what I said was for the reasons he thought. What I said was not for the reasons this person thought. He/she tried me, convicted me and sentenced me without every even talking to me. and now we do not speak to each other. It just goes to show that when you add a why to the reason someone does something then you will essentially cause your own pain. I have opened my house to this person and walked with this person for almost two years and now, today it is over. That is okay, you can only reach for so long until the rope runs out. So what happened to me? It took me out …. I was hurt and wondered why and before I knew it I was not reading or praying or writing or anything. I could see it happening, but in my mind I was not willing to do anything about it. I was angry and hurt and instead of running to the source of my comfort, I just kept quiet. That is where I have been. I walk in forgiveness and peace
7 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.
