Love and Justice


For me, I don’t know about you, it’s so hard to understand love and judgment both being a part of God….

I am fairly certain that most people see God either as loving or judging… but the truth is that He is both love and justice. Before God created us the world was all ‘right’ but when sin came in, so did ‘wrong’. We see that if there are things are right, then there are also things that are  wrong too. If there is ‘right’ then there is there is ‘wrong’…

 

God is not all one attribute but his make up, not that I pretend to know or understand all of it, is complex and so He is both love and justice. Actually I think that love and justice are inseparable. However from a human, mortal standpoint…. trying to see the cohesion of love and justice is just too much for my brain to control and make sense of.

 

Humans either usually err on the side of love, compassion, empathy, understanding, forgiveness and mercy or they err of the side of judgment, condemnation, opinions, correction, drawings lines in the sand and being very black and white about things. From what I have seen… God is the only one who can successfully do love and justice perfectly.

 

I really don’t know how it works, and what is the difference between an observation and a judgment? How thin is that line right there and how on earth do we stay on the right side of it?

From human eyes we cannot comprehend that, but if we can relax and give up our role as judge then we can be freed to do the things He has called us to with even more anointing because judgement of others stunts us.

 

We also need to realise that our interpretations may or may not be correct, but how can we know in a lot of cases unless we know the bigger picture?

I know that I don’t know the bigger picture so I’m asking the Lord to forgive me for thinking I do.

~ Disappointed~

You are allowed to be disappointed, you are human and you have feelings, desires, boundaries, and needs…. but try not to stay there for too long.

After all other people are human too and you can’t expect them to live up to your expectations or needs all of the time and you probably don’t live up to all other people’s expectations either. No one can do that!

I extremely dislike disappointment in all its forms. It not only hurts you at times, but it can also crush hopes, dreams, desires, it can spell the end of something.

Disappointment is a heaviness that hangs and sometimes it takes a good while to go away. Often when we are disappointed it’s when something is beyond our control but many times it can even be in our self.

Disappointment is very real, you feel it deeply but once you have recognised it and acknowledged it then work on getting re-appointed. Recognise boundaries and limitations and reality and forgive, let go and move on.

Disappointment will keep our faces turned downward and with our faces turned down we might miss the things that are ahead of us….

Let go, it can’t help you to remain in disappointment. Lift up your eyes and walk into what is to come ❤

Camouflaging by comfort….


Camouflaging by comfort….

There are things that we do, friends that we have, patterns that we keep re-living that disguise what is really going on in our life and when these things come to a stop it can be scary.

When we see these things, as if for the first time, our first instinct is usually to run straight back to them because they have been or still are a security blanket, a help, a relief.

In reality these things, these people, these distractions, will never really bring relief that we desire, they will only cover up the way we were actually feeling in the first place.

It is finally when we feel this way that we are able to asses where we really are at that moment, and its then that we ever really have a hope of being free and achieving our potential.

We must think twice before we rush to the things that bring us comfort. The sooner we can look at these things, we know we will feel better about ourselves.

The longer we keep running the worst we will feel about our selves because every time we come back around to this same point we will always find the same answers and the same reality will be still staring us in the face.

Just something to think about….
