I didn’t realize that I had gotten so rough around the edges. I think it has to do with going through so much. Like Miss Sophia said in the Color Purple “All my life, I had to fight”. Well, I haven’t had to fight all my life, but I think life has beat me up and I’ve had to fight the circumstances of life.
Right now, God is showing me when the time is right, there is someone I will need to receive in love. It’s just that simple. It’s about the law of kindness. I have learned a great lesson. The wrong person can go far because of kindness and the right person can be shut out because of lack of kindness. Yes, hard lesson, but lesson learned.
There is nothing I can do to change the circumstance. But God knows in the fullness of time things will some together. Meanwhile, I have to walk on my love walk. But I know I can do it.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3
New International Version (NIV)
13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
