Apology

My intent for joyindestructible is to encourage and edify other believers who sometimes, go astray and sometimes, hurt as I have hurt. My words are not intended as any personal criticism or condemnation. I write about the things I struggle with and point to Jesus as the answer as I also, point my own thoughts there. I’m not anything special even if sometimes, I may imagine myself to be something, I’m nothing. I don’t have anything apart from Jesus. I’m a sick woman old-too-soon because of the damage I did to my body as a teenager with drugs. I am of minimal education and I am working class. I have survived many hardships and I am not deserving in any way of what Jesus has given to me. If my words have hurt someone, I am so sorry. I want no one to suffer because I know the weight of suffering. Please forgive me, not for my sake but for yours and free yourself from any remaining hurt my words afflicted in you. Like all human beings, I am subject to deception born from my wrong-desires. Even when pain isn’t my intention, I know I sometimes cause pain. I ask that God would heal any pain my words have caused by the power of His great Love that is born of His divine desire that none should perish but all come to repentance. I hope and pray my sincere apology will be accepted. Though I seek to write healing words my words are only, human. God’s Word is the Word that heals. Don’t look to me, look to Him.

    1. I haven’t read anything but lovely, edifying words from Pam. Yet we are all fallible humans. Like Wally, my words have been hurtful too many times in the past. I hope I have grown, healed, mellowed, and wised up enough that I won’t ever hurt anyone with my words again. But I wouldn’t bet on it.

      1. Thank you, Linda. I certainly have a lot of words to account for. We never know exactly, how the words we write will land but we are accountable for writing them. I’m glad my words are a blessing to you. I know you’ve suffered greatly and the things I share are written for those who stumble and those who’ve been hurt by the stumbling of others. We are to do all in our power to live at peace with everyone. God bless.

    1. Thank you. I know you know my heart better than anyone except my husband and Jesus. Thank you for loving me as I am for so many years, seeing what’s good in me, and encouraging it. I’ll be better tomorrow. God bless. I love you back.

    1. Thanks Rob. Words are powerful to heal and to harm and sometimes, the same words accomplish both in different people. My hope is any corrective words are write come with the understanding that the finger of error I point, is point also, at myself. I’m also, not trying to win anyone to any kind of organization but point for solutions for every human problem in Jesus. I’m happy and blessed that what I share builds you up and also, very sorry that anything I wrote had the effect of tearing anyone down. God bless you. I am edified by your work, as well.

    1. You are also, a beautiful lady, a sister I recognize as one who reaches for the positive to overcome the negative. It’s a fierce war, you know. I hate war. I’m reaching for peace in a particular situation. Please, say a prayer for me. God bless.

    1. Thank you, Jim. God’s work through you is a support for me too. It’s a different world today, where what is good is viewed as evil. In such a world truth hurts, even when written in love and received as personal insult. I’ve been a mom for a long time and all caring moms what to correct their children when they see them hurting or taking a wrong path. Sometimes, we moms need to back off and not put ourselves in the place of the Holy Spirit. I’m thankful for my salvation and I’m also, thankful that God doesn’t give up on me. I’m thankful He corrects me when I over-step my boundaries. It’s scary to think where I might end up if it weren’t for my Shepherd. Without His watchfulness I surely, would have lost my precious salvation many years ago.:0) God bless and keep you.
