Sis, lets take responsibility for cleaning the inside of the cup. Let’s allow God to train us in isolation no matter how uncomfortable it is. Let’s be thankful for the private correction rather than the open rebuke or fall from grace. Let’s cooperate with God rather than fight Him on this. Do you really want to grow? Then take the gloves off with God.
Sisters, the journey of singleness is beautiful and challenging all at the same time. We have liberties and boundaries that are uniques to this season of our lives. Somedays I am grateful for the portion, others I would trade it in quicker than you can say, “Would you like fries with that?” One thing that is consistent however is that God wants my perspective to be ever bent to giving Him glory out of my life.
Needless to expound, I’d guess that readers would conclude that it is socially unacceptable to get a fresh drink out of a dirty glass. Why then, to the mature, do we expect folks to experience the thirst quenching goodness of Jesus Christ out of our lives, if we are ourselves a “dirty glass?” Let me expound…
You come from a place where you have power to influence many people. But you are allowing the influence of others to influence you and cause people to be confused and fall away. Use your influence for my glory.
