The Church – a place to get healed?
The church is a place where people should be able to get healed and it takes grace!
Grace is the power that causes one to be able to overcome and it comes through love. How can one overcome if they don’t understand what they are doing wrong?
If people point out they are just negative and then they avoid you, how is that helping anyone?
1 Corinthians 13 doesn’t say to mark someone and to avoid them, it says love is long suffering and is patient and kind.
Truly dying out to the flesh and allowing the Spirit to flow through brings you out of your comfort zone but it is so rewarding to see the Lord take over a situation and bring healing and restoration.
God’s love is unconditional not based on the way a person performs. You don’t deserve His unconditional love. It is a free gift just like salvation!
The only way a person can grow is by His grace and love, no compromise or accepting of sin, but encouraging one to overcome!
We need to be careful for it is the little foxes that spoil the vine.
The Lord blesses abundantly in so many ways and this is when we really need to be on guard! The Lord has poured out much grace since the passing of my mother.
He prepared me even before she died in many ways but it has been hard dealing with the attacks of the enemy through people trying to oppress me so I would get worn down and fall into the wrong kind of grief.
Yes, Lord, your grace is sufficient and I will overcome!
Living under Grace
Maybe that is why I stay to myself most of the time, because when I start to open up people say they can’t handle all my drama and can’t handle a negative person!
Is that really the way we should treat one another?
Do you avoid someone who is struggling getting it all together?
I just don’t understand what drama is! Maybe I should just stay in my comfort zone being by myself.
I know the Lord doesn’t walk away from me when I am negative! Pray that I know what these people are talking about, because I just don’t understand!
I know the church is the one place you can really get wounded. People come on strong and rude and if you react, you are being negative. God says, love covers a multitude of sins, and we must die to the flesh, but at times it can really be hard.
Lord, pour out Your great grace!

|Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.|
