“Forgive and you shall be forgiven.”
A bitter memory taunts me. I wail, “They should ask “my” forgiveness. I didn’t do anything wrong. It’s “them” not me. Can’t You see. It’s their fault not mine.”
“Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
A sweet presence sweeps over my being. I know He is in the midst. A holy stillness envelops my restless spirit, as His loving arms embrace me. Suddenly, it doesn’t matter who wounded me. All that matters is that I please my Master. I stop resisting and fully surrender.
“Peace be still.”
A peace that passes all understanding grips my soul. My circumstances haven’t changed yet inwardly I am not the same. This time He didn’t calmed the storm, but this time He calmed me.
“Be filled with My Spirit.”
I delight in His presence and realized a special truth about the Holy Spirit. When It pours, God reigns.
Suddenly a sunbeam splashed its ray on my tear-stained face. Looking up I see a beautiful rainbow. I whisper, “Thank you, Lord, for helping me trace a rainbow through the rain.”
