This picture of Dr. Cindy Trimm’s post and her response to Nancy needs to go viral! So many people come to the end of their lives with regrets and, incorrectly, blame God for their wrong thinking. They feel used, misused, and abused because of misguided thinking. Yes, I know that there are “ministers” that work to capitalize on that wrong thinking but, if you stop treating people like they are gods and depend completely on The Holy Spirit (the only God on earth), you will be guided to the truth.
Today, I’ve come to the understanding that you can respect and honor men and women of Jehovah God without allowing yourself to be manipulated, abused, swindled, or strayed away from the path of your destiny and purpose. If you’ve had a bad experience with a church or any man/woman of God, put it in the column of “Expensive Lessons” and return to your first love, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Ask the Holy Spirit to create in you clean heart. A heart free from unforgiveness, bitterness, hate, and revenge. Ask The Holy Spirit of Jehovah to lead, guide, and direct you back to YOUR purpose and destiny. It will not be easy but this is absolutely necessary. Remember that faith requires trust: you will be challenged to trust the goodness and sovereignty of God. It will be difficult but not impossible. If you let Him, the Holy Spirit will help you during this process.
Every day, you’ll begin to think less and less about the injustice or unfairness of what happened, and more about your purpose. Being purpose driven will be your “Balm in Gilead”. Growth and maturity in Christ will reveal that the experience was simply the enemy’s attempt to destroy you but God’s grace (always available but only works when applied) was there for you. God’s grace is always there for His children. I pray that The Holy Spirit will continue to nudge us; reminding us to apply His grace, as we continue on this journey.
