It is a choice we all make in our lives, in both fleeting moments and as a lifestyle. What have you decided on? Vengeance is mine, says The Lord. Our sin nature in the flesh wants to retaliate when we feel wronged but the Holy Spirit should guide us in our words and actions.
We should use our bodies to be a light to the world and not to reveal more darkness. Gentleness is a fruit of the spirit that is in strong demand and short supply in our world today.
Since my voice isn't strong enough to talk to all that I'd like to, I want my life's example to speak the volumes I cannot. My happiness comes by being saved by grace and forgiven by His mercy. I will one day tell the story of how I've overcome the struggles of this life and understand it better by and by. I want my life to be as active as possible and to show that doing things a lil different is better than sitting on the sidelines. ''I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.''
