The words below have been sitting in my heart and in my soul and in my mind for a couple weeks.
They are truth!
My friend, Wendy K. Walters, penned them…I’m so glad she did. With her permission, I am sharing them with you today. *
You have the power to not be offended.
Seriously, this is no small thing. You get to choose whether or not you pick up or carry an offense. You don’t have to. Even when someone says or does something hurtful, careless, or outright mean … you can choose to let it bounce off the shield of faith you carry. Its fiery dart does NOT have to injure you.
You can protect your mind (your heart and your spirit) by getting “armored up” with the Word of God. You can lay down wounds at the feet of Jesus rather than carrying them with you and allowing them to weigh you down.
Choose. Choose to live free from offenses. Choose to walk in forgiveness. Be covered in God’s amazing grace and allow His love to minister to every hurt. You are stronger than you think, I’ll wager.
Live free today!
* I encourage you to discover Wendy on Facebook or on her website. Her encouragement and messages are powerful. Faith building. She is a speaker, branding consultant, author coach, and activator of dreams! And she is my Friend.
