A friend of mine once said: The Lord told me that there are those who truly love Me (God) yet are bound by addictions. There is scripture to back that up: For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate. Romans 7:14-15 So if you are struggling with an addiction, God understands.
Words can cut to the bone, even if we don’t mean for them to. The more we love, the more it hurts, so I offer the following to whom it concerns. Forgive me for the times my words hurt you, it wasn’t meant to be so. Do you really hear me? Was it you who said: Know this, all things work together for those that love God? The last of that verse also says: Who are called according to His purpose. Many times that gets left out. Most live their whole lives and never understand what their purpose is. Basically I believe it is to love, though I know we each have a specific purpose.
Yes, it’s true, we can’t help everyone, but there are some who have been set in our path that we can. I appreciate all the love and kindness you have given to me and others. What a heart you have.
