Guess I am in a strange kind of mood for some reason today and want to think of only me. I begin to ask myself if this is Christ like to think of me and not others. I always felt the Bible principles of Christianity was to think of others first. But sometimes we have to think of ourselves or we may find ourselves backed into a corner and cannot get out of it.
It seems I allow myself to begin judging certain areas as to what I have always been taught as sin when I realize I have no right to judge anyone or anything. I had a chat with my brother in Florida who is a minister. His advice was to allow the pastor of my church be the leader of all the congregation and if he steers someone in the wrong direction then it will be him that will have to answer to God for it.
I may not be making sense here so will try to explain. It has not been a year since the choir director and his wife separated. A divorce followed which that is their own personal business. The ex-wife left the church and the man began to search for a new mate. His choir director position was taken away from him but in the last few weeks he has been back on the platform playing drums. And two weeks ago he brings his lady friend to church. On Mother's day he announces his wedding plans for May 22nd with a reception following. Well...enough said.....
For those who pray I am requesting prayer for me that I come to terms with the idea a divorced person has a right to a life with another mate. It is how they go about getting that mate is where the problem lies within a body of Christians.
Maybe it is time I, the widow and lonely person, begin searching for her own soul mate. It has been almost 6 years now. Instead of pointing a finger at someone else, who may or may not be sinning, I should look within my own heart and soul to see where I stand with the God of all individuals whether they are divorced, single, married or widowed.
Thank you for letting me vent.
