This morning while at the nail salon, a lady came in who I thought was very loud and obnoxious. I was trying to ignore her and continue with my reading but it was an impossible task. On the way home, I was thinking about how unchristian my thoughts toward her had been so I began to pray and ask for forgiveness.
Within thirty minutes after returning home I was opening my mail when I read a card from the daughter of a dear friend who had recently passed. The card was about her mother’s love and admiration for me. All at once I had an epiphany because within a short period of time I had reacted to a situation and judged myself and this lady harshly ; then had received this wonderful message. There was no difference!! Neither of these events could or should effect who I am! After calling my good friend to share with her, she responded that she had been working with “Perfect Love casteth out fear.” Perfect Love is without any ego at all whereas fear is all about ego. My only validation comes from God/Love.
Numbers 6:24-26 states “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.”
Will continue to watch this unfolding with Love, humility and expectancy.
