Talk To Me Thursday

Hello Cazhes,

Hope you guys are doing well.  I come to you sharing a scripture and song.  Right now I am trying to build a better relationship with God so I must love all and walk in love.  Sometimes this is hard to do so I have to try to remind myself and seeing this scripture was a reminder of that for me.

Romans 12:17-21 NIV version Womens Devotional Bible

Do not repay anyone evil for evil.  Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.  If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.  Do not take revenge, my friends but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written:  "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord.  On the contrary: " If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.  In doing tghis you will heap burning coals on his head.  Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil..

I hope this word and song selection encourages and lifts somebody sprits today.  CocoaDout...

Thanks for sharing, Cocoa! This scripture is short but the meaning speaks volumes. It's so easy in our day to day lives to forget that vengeance is NOT ours. Doing goodwill to people who have wronged us is not only the right thing to do..but sometimes can bring peace to us. I love it!

In building a relationship with God, this is one of the best lessons I've learned. It's hard to love in spite of. It's been especially challenging lately but it's a rewarding feeling. You can not overcome evil with evil. I'm understanding this even more so now and God is really putting me through the test. But I am grateful for those lessons and I'm learning to live by his word and from that I'm growing into a better person every day. "The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you". You're on the right path so keep going and keep believing.
