"TAKE HIS CORRECTION, LEARN AND MOVE ON WITH LIFE"

Take His correction, learn and move on with life. Let's go to:

Psalms 38:5 "My wounds stink [and] are corrupt because of my foolishness." (KJV)

wounds (Strong's 2250) bound (with stripes) or a weal (welt; (from Strong's 2266) to join, to fascinate, couple together, have fellowship with, heap up, join self together or league;
stink (Strong's 4716) melting or putridity; (from Strong's 4743) to melt, flow, dwindle or vanish;
corrupt (Strong's 4743) to melt, flow, dwindle or vanish;
foolishness (Strong's 200) silliness; (from Strong's 191) to be perverse or silly.

So once you go away with dear God, take His correction and see His light in the situation. Learn from what happened and see how better to avoid doing what you did so that you can be a better and willing servant for Him. If it was something that you did that pulled you from Him, ask He forgive you in His Son, Jesus the Christ's Name, and move on remembering how bad this made you feel, and sin no more. It could be one simple act like watching too many movies, television, shopping or working too much overtime. If you are so into anything too much, that is taking too much time from Him, pulling you more and more from Him, look at the situation and correct yourself. Remember because you believe on Him that the enemy, or Satan, will use perverse and unnatural things to get to you that may seem innocent, but take precious time from dear God.

Keep that balance in your life so that you have some time for dear God, always first, yourself and then your family and friends. Make some time each day to get into the Word so that you are strengthened and locked and loaded in His Word. Remember dear God's feelings and where your blessings come from. If you are so into this world and not focused on dear God and forget about Him, He does not like that just as you would someone you cared about after you gave them everything. So remember Him spending that quality time with Him in the Word. Show Him the respect and the love by getting into Him. As here in:

Proverbs 14:1 "Every wise woman buildeth her house: But the foolish plucketh it down with her hands." (KJV)

foolish (Strong's 200) silliness; (from Strong's 191) to be perverse or silly.

So if dear God built up you and your life on Him, why would you go from Him and wreck that for yourself! There is no common sense or wisdom in that.

Thank Him for the correction and move on. Ask that He keep you even closer to Him so that you will recover and continue sticking right next to Him.

Lastly, take His correction, learn and move on with life. Know His love that He did correct you back to Him always pulling His beloved even closer to Him. Just as a parent that loves their child, He will correct you because He loves you so much and wants you to be happy here and be there for Him. This way your life is even better and He can use you for even greater things. Now what a blessing that is! Show Him that you can do it and that you are someone that He can rely on His Plan of Love. He did it for you, so do it for Him. He loves you so much.

Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Mercy

This is a documented essay with commentary. The over documented style is hard to read. Lose the all caps, and it help your message be not as oppressive, there is a stong message here, the key is to get an audience to listen. Keep at it and you find a process to success. Note: I will post something soon about proper parenthetical documentation. blessings dub

It feels like you had a wee bit of a struggle getting the point across in your peice in the beginning. I had a hard time getting through the paragraph after the word definitions--then it seemed you picked up the pace afterwards. Nice work however--keep writing! God bless ya, littlelight
