All night long I was given a Scripture; it wouldn’t leave me it kept on pounding. At last I got up and wrote it down, He was telling me something.
“Don’t you realise that all of you together are the Temple of God and that the spirit of God, lives in you. God will destroy anyone who destroys this Temple. For Gods Temple is Holy.” 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.
The day before I’d been given the opportunity to help someone. This person is a new Christian. She had lost her job and the debts were piling up, so she had gone on a drinking spree. After bringing her home, feeding her, giving coffee and allowing her ramblings for 3 hours I decided she was appropriate to go home. Depositing her back at her car, she laughingly informed me, she was going for more drinks….
I went to bed angry. I was angry at her.
So God dealt with me. AFTER ALL…Who was I, to judge …. If God gave up on me that quickly each time I failed, where would I be to-day…… I never stop learning and growing in Him.
I am to love the unlovable…as Jesus did. I am to forgive the unforgivable…as Jesus did. Just as He loves me when I am unlovable! And He forgives me, when I am unforgivable.
We are to be kind without judgement.
And sometimes that's not easy.

In God's Classroom
A would-be Author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. B.N (Aus) B.S.N (U.S.A) Bible College Graduate. Lover of People. WORK PLACE HISTORY... 1.
