My enemy

By now most of you know that my dog is not doing very well.   I am not the kind of person to hide my feeling even if it might hurt me.  You also know about my past and all the wrong I have done.  Since I have come to know Jesus my life has changed so much.  I’m not saying my life is great, I have still a lot of things to deal with.  One of them is some “friends” who can’t forgive me.  I am sorry that I have hurt them and if I could change things for them, I would.  Some times it’s easy to believe the things people tell us and don’t want others to know what’s going on.  That’s were we go wrong, we have to talk about it.

This is a message I got today from a friend.

I know it is hard but your just upsetting everyone.  You told us ,we get it; just do what you need to to do.  You wanted that dog and now this comes with it.  Deal with it with out involving every one.  This may be a surprise Kent but not to many of us like you.  You have left a lot of angry feelings with my kids and I.  We all think you are crazy.  We are tiered of hearing about this and seeing your picture up there.   The end result is all we need.  RIP Toby

Why can’t people let go and forgive?  It seems to me like they want me to fail?  What good are you doing by telling this to them, you can’t change me.  I know that from trying to make other change.

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 this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good (Romans 12:17-21)

So many of us want to get even we can’t love them who hurt us.   I love my enemy and no matter what they try to do, or say to me;  I will love them.  I’m not who I was and all that matters is that Jesus loves me and has forgiven me for my sines.  If what I say makes you mad, good then it’s working and you need to think about why your mad.  Maybe it’s time to do thing differently and get a new start. A new start that only Jesus Christ can give you.

May you be blessed and thanks to all of my great friends, new and old.

God Bless,
