Pieces of Reconciliation

As a writer, I am enthralled by words; what they mean, the purpose they serve, how to use them correctly.  Oftentimes I come across a word that seems important; but I am not familiar with it.

Reconciliation is that word for me right now.   We die to our old selves, becoming new in Christ.

There is no greater joy than to be forgiven, to forgive and know that forgiveness is necessary each day — to live in harmony; oftentimes — with ourselves.

2 Corinthians 5:18 All these new things are from God who brought us back to himself through what Christ Jesus did. And God has given us the privilege of urging everyone to come into his favor and be reconciled to him.

Questioning Pieces

Every day most of us are perplexed, concerned or worried about something.  When it comes to our faith, the foundation is very important.  What you stand on, and stand for – will either hinder or help you.

The parts of God that we don’t understand; primarily why He allows bad things to happen or circumstances that never change or the myriad of questions we have; and oftentimes shake our fists at — may never be answered until we meet our Heavenly Father on the day of our departure from earth – to heaven.

God’s ways are as mysterious as the pathway of the wind and as the manner in which a human spirit is infused into the little body of a baby while it is yet in its mother’s womb.
Truly, O God of Israel, Savior, you work in strange, mysterious ways.
Rather than question, I’ve found praying works better.  It lets negative emotions flow out of my heart and mind, and brings them back to the reason we pray; for peace of heart.
