Earlier this week buy modafinil amsterdam shared a tweet that stuck with me:
“GOD forgave you. If you refuse to forgive yourself then you are choosing to resist his grace. #truth”
That’s a pretty powerful statement! One worth remembering.
We all mess up. We all sin. It’s a given. What we need to do is learn from it. Learn to ask for forgiveness from God, from others… and from ourself. I do realize from my own experiences that this can be easier said than done.
It’s funny how things work out. As I was trying to decide if I wanted to write about this topic something happened that made the decision clear. My Mom would call it a “God Wink.” The first tweet I saw this morning was from buy modafinil asia:
“Sometimes we are saddened by the weight of our sins. May we not be discouraged. Christ has come to lift this burden and give us peace.”
I hope you can take comfort in these words. I know I do.
Yesterday I was reminded of something pretty important… there are times that work can wait.
I had lunch plans with a former coworker (and now good friend). We had been trying to do lunch for weeks but work and life always got in the way.
Work was crazy busy, so as I texted to see if we were still on to meet, in the back of my mind I was hoping it wouldn’t work out. No dice. He was free and “looking forward to catching up.”
I left the work behind and spent a great hour in conversation with a friend. It was nice to get away and talk about things other than work.
Here’s the funny thing. I actually think I ended up getting more done by taking that lunch break. I returned more focused and my spirits were definitely lifted.
That’s how I was reminded that there are times that work can (and should) wait. I was also reminded just how important having good friends is.
Is there a friend you need to have lunch with and catch up?
