[by...] Savior's Words @SaviorsWords
You are not a failure. You took a step of faith and a door closed. That means you're one step closer to an open door.
Imagine what it is to receive a breath of air when one has been fearing death by suffocation. Imagine what it is to be given a cup of water when one has been struggling and stumbling through an arid desert. That's what encouragement does. That's what "Savior's Words" did for me just now.
But more than that was given to me upon reading those words. While I received a personal word of encouragement, the question, "Why is it that so many take God's love and, upon offering it to the world, wrap it in bitterness...?" also entered my mind... What a sad thought...
Wrapping God's love in bitterness is like pouring that above-mentioned cup of water onto the arid ground, while watching the thirsty die...and being proud of yourself for it. :/
"Savior's Words" did not offer love wrapped in bitterness. I have only been following "Savior's Words" for a short time, but each time I have found God's love wrapped in grace. But it happens... And we wonder why the world rejects Him... :(
