Turning Point

(4-23-17, Portimão, Day 12)

Psalms 18:35b, KJV …thy gentleness hath made me great.

Psalms 103:10, KJV, He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

I get harsh and hasty because I think my rights have been violated. 

I feel that I am justified in my ire and anger. 

My displeasure and my disappointments must be made aware….

But when it is over, the dust has settled and the ‘victory’ claimed…did I really win? 

Was my behavior really necessary? 

Did I show the love of, the gentleness of, the forgiveness of God?

No.

No.

No.

Lord, when I sin, I come to You for forgiveness, for love and compassion….and I receive them from You.

As Your ambassador, as Your example, as Your reflection here on Earth, help me to turn my scowls into smiles. 

My harsh words into helping words. 

My displeasure into pleasure.

Starting right now…
