God does Listen!

No matter how much I try to be nice to everyone and sensitive to everyone's feelings...not everyone will be happy of what I do.. definitely not everyone.. so when I decided today that I'm sick and tired of being nice and Ms. Goody Two-Shoes all the time b/c I will somehow offend people no matter what.. God just gave me a revelation and told me to look up this verse and really take it upon my heart...

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you." - John 15:18-19 NIV

Okay, that just blew me away...what was I thinking? Jesus went through so much pain in the world.. and here I am complaining...the Lord is good--He knows how to comfort my soul and give me cheese with my "whine." :)

I love this song in your blog. You should have been with me at Joyce Meyer's Conference in LA. Hillsong live is wonderful!

Amen to that sister! i know how you feel, i've been going thru some of that myself. God is so good that He helps us to understand things we're going thru!

Ha, I can totally relate to that verse right now too! Just remember, we as Christians walk the narrow path. But thank goodness we have God's hand to hold onto along the path. :-)
