Once again, God is working in His wonderfully mysterious ways! When I throw this graphic and verse together, I didn't know about the weekend challenge of red and lime in Faith in heART. I just picked it because I liked it and have been on a floral kick lately. Plus I don't like using just a "plain" background. Sometimes the verses will have something I can find and attach like deer or apples. Something that is stuck in my head lately - "Everything (Evil and Sin) didn't start because of an apple".... but because of Eve "ate" from the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. What if ate just means that she sampled, tasted of the KNOWLEDGE...as in she read,or looked at pictures of how things could happen if you doubt God's plan.
The verses today touch on this EVIL..the thoughts of REVENGE and AVENGING.
Human nature is to pay like for like. We seek to hurt those who hurt us...no matter how small and usually insignificant it truly matters to OUR life.
Instead of seeking God, we mull over how hurt we have been. We lick our wounds and allow them to fester, boiling over into other parts of our lives.
Why do we hold on to these grievances? Why can we not let go?
I pray that today you let go of these heartaches, headaches, and wounds. Let God give you unspeakable peace and rest from these thoughts of Revenge and Evil.
Love you all!
