My soul aches…

I am a very compassionate and empathetic person.  I am also a pretty devout Southern Baptist Christian which means I try my best not to judge or condemn people.  But there are just some things that make my soul ache….

I know that over 2000 years ago Jesus Christ gave his life so that we can all be saved.  I also know that the Lord our God has given us all free will.  But when I see things like this, see the post below, I cannot help but wonder “why?”.  I can admit that I get weak at times.  In these moments I lean on my faith and I pray.

However, I am also a firm believer in Karma! Remember “do unto others as you would have them do unto you!” I am not a proponent for vengeance, because you should never add flame to an already intense fire. It brings me peace in knowing that “what goes around comes around” and the Lord/Universe, which ever you believe, will give your transgressors there just do.

#WednesdayWisdom: Past pain can become the filter through which we see everything in our lives. And this is why gratefulness is necessary to get free from hurt. There is always something to be grateful for; even in the midst of our deepest sorrow. @NonaNotNora writes about this in her book Success from the Inside Out.
