Everyone has a soft, weak area in their lives right? Something that Satan just keeps touching to make sure you don´t heal. Or maybe is the same stone you just keep falling on, over and over again. Here in Spain we say “Man is the only animal that falls twice with the same stone”. Do you have something similar in your country too?. It certainly can be discouraging to keep having to ask forgiveness for the same thing over and over again. But don´t give up thinking why to ask forgiveness one more time knowing it may happen again, because that is exactly what Satan wants.
Well, don´t worry, I am not about to “preach”. I am in no position to do such a thing. Just sharing what is going on in my mind right now.
Last Monday I heard a message from my pastor back in the States. It was talking about “ No looking back”. It was a great blessing. At one point it was talking about those that get stuck in their past sins. How us dwelling in the past, keeps us from going forward. Anyhow, he went on to talk about getting stuck in other´s past “sins” towards us. I think that is a great point. One I really need to work on. I want to believe I am a forgiving person. My problem is that after the same person does the exact same thing to me over and over again, I start having a hard time forgiving. I tent to say “ Well, after so many times “sorry” is not enough. If you were sorry you wouldn´t do it all the time”. Funny I say that, because I struggle with pretty much the same things over and over again. But with a broken heart I go before my God begging for forgiveness, praying He would and knowing He would. Just to do the very same thing, for the very same reason, not too long later. Does anyone understand what I am saying? Or I go asking my husband forgiveness for my temper just once again, wanting him to forgive me.
I need to remember that next time my girls leave the toys all over the floor, or next time my little one jumps on the sofa, or next time my husband does the very thing I “figure” he knew I didn´t want him to do (that attitude in itself can take another post).
This is just one of the things that have been in my mind these last couple of days. There is one more that I may share tomorrow.
Another thing that has been going on in my house is a little “bug” that has been breaking any machine around my house. On Monday, my computer broke, my husband was able to fix it, just to break again a few hours later. I think it is pretty dead. My husband´s computer also broke on Monday. So we had to go to the store and purchase a computer because in my house and with the ministry, a computer is a must. We were going to anyway, but we were hoping to wait a couple more months of savings…. Oh well.
Then my washer machine wasn´t working and neither was my dryer. Praise the Lord my husband did something and now they are both working, and we are able to wear clean close. A blessing to those around us hahahhaha
Well, as long as my flat-iron keeps working I am all right ,) ha!!
