RECONCILE TO GREATNESS





Happy Sunday! I pray you had a beautiful and productive week. On this particular day,  I went to a community event and I connected with some awesome new people.  I believe at least one or two new relationships will be formed from that event. New relationships are definitely important because it allows us to connect with others outside of our comfort zone. Ultimately, with the purpose of forming new relationships that are in line with God's purpose and plan for our life. However, in my opinion holding tight to past relationships are equally important as well and it's always a great day to reconcile a broken one.

There was a time when I would have easily made excuses and given up on failed relationship with others. Those excuses  prevented me from allowing God to use me for his will. The Bible says,  " to understand love you must realize that Christ gave his life for us and we must give up our lives for other believers." This resonated in my spirit and how I am led to deal with and reconcile broken relationships. I realized that sometimes I have to give up on what I feel about the situation and give into what God desires to resolve it.

In conclusion, reconciliation like everything else in this world requires pray, effort and hard work. ...and not avoidance:) The result of it all is you uphold the position as a peace maker for God. Is this process easy? ...definitely not but loving and getting along with the deserving as well as the undeserving is spiritual maturity!










As always, thank you for reading and have a blessed new week.

  1. That is a beautiful summer dress, and such a good message you're sharing too. Very timely considering the message series at my church at the moment is how to love 'relational vampires' and how we need to love those people even when we disagree.

    Hope that you had a great weekend! Was a quiet one here as we were all a bit unwell unfortunately. Feeling better today though! :)
