See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile man. Hebrews 12:15
I met a new friend this week .
She said something that has been rolling around in my brain since. Something was "driving her nuts".
A sweet saint said to her.."You need to get that pebble out of your shoe."
That pebble of bitterness..bothers you a little when you first get it in your shoe. But as you walk it starts to hurt even more. Side tracks you from other things. Before you know it your favoring your other foot ..then your back hurts...all you can think about is that pebble. You see where i'm going. A little pebble...big trouble.
"Bitterness keeps your shackled to the wall of immaturity, but Jesus Christ has made a way for YOU to be set free. He has shown us how to set our minds above and pursue a life that imitates Him. The key to freedom has been given to you by grace." (from WHEN WALLFLOWERS DANCE by Angela Thomas)
I never cease to be amazed at how my Father gives me these "glimpses" that just make so clear the lesson he is trying to get me to understand. My divine appointment with a new friend and a pebble.
This baby Jesus girl still has a lot of growing to do.
