Jesus was attacked in the bible so many times, and he always handled it with such peace and grace. Not me man, i'm more like a wrecking ball slamming into a glass building. Grace? What is that?
And Jesus always used these times of judgement, as great teachable moments. He understood that they didn't get it, and he was patient with them in his teachings.
So needless to say i've been struggling with this for some time. When is enough enough? Are we allowed to say enough as christains?
i personally think boundaries are good. i think they helps us know whats expected, as well as what to expect. i think you can extend grace and forgiveness, but also keeping at arms length. And i think sometimes silence is the answer. i believe that two people can be awesome individuals, but when together are like oil and water, and no amount of stirring will make them blend.
Sometimes it takes months, to few years to repair something that has been damaged. And sometimes i think you just have to let go.
This has been hard for me, as i feel the need to repair things that are broken. i'm a fixer by nature. But this year, i've felt that if i'm compromising myself to "fix" something, it's not gonna ever work. i won't edit me anymore. So, i have drawn my line.
Psalms 17:2 may my vindication come from you
Psalms 18:29 With your help i can advance against a troop; with my God i can scale a wall.
