When You’ve Been Mistreated
WHEN YOU’VE BEEN MISTREATED
I just want to wallow in it.
I’m fighting the pricking of my heart because~
I. Deserve. To. Wallow.
How many times can a person get mistreated?
How many times can I get knocked down and pick myself back up again?
I don’t want to get back up.
I want to be angry inside.
I want to cry.
I want to run away.
I definitely don’t want to read my bible or pray.
My heart knows what God is whispering to it~
I block my ears like a little child.
It’s not fair
It’s too hard
I can’t do this anymore.
Let me have my moment.
But God keeps whispering~
He will keep bringing me back to this place over and over again~
Until I realize Jesus.
Today I only realize Charisse.
God knows my circumstances.
They aren’t accidental.
He wants me to see Jesus in every moment~
Even in the mistreatment and hurt.
He whispers to my soul~
Be tender hearted
as I forgave you.
I am undone.
His words pierce my heart.
I can forgive
I can be kind
I can be tender hearted
I can love again
I can do all things through Him~
And that’s exactly what He would do.

“Never look for justice, but never cease to live it”
