Will You Trust God or Will You Help Him?

What hurts??  It hurts when people whom I hoped would be my counselors and mentors turn to criticism and disciplinarianpoint out the things that I know, all too well, need change in my life.  These are things that I have spoken to the Lord about and He assures me in His love that He is dealing with them.

It is not the job of anyone on earth to beat us until we change.  The love of God is rich and pure and never beats us.

angry windIt is like the old story of the wind and the sun.  The wind bet the sun that it could get the man walking down the road take off his coat.  The sun said go ahead.

The harder the wind blew and beat against the man, the tighter the coat was pulled around him.  After hurricane force winds, the man was sheltered near a building and still in his coat.

Then the sun said, “Now it is my turn.”  He shone down on the man and warmed the air and the atmman and sunosphere with his soft rays and soon the man took off his coat and stopped to enjoy the warmth.

Let us let God our loving heavenly Father do His job through the loving brightness of His Son change us into His image.

Trust the Holy Spirit to do the job.  He is more than able.
