#402 – Forbearance and Long Suffering

When transparency meets vulnerability healing is the result. The barrier to purpose is pride. Pride in admitting the truth to yourself, pride in admitting the truth to others and pride in seeking divine help.

Be patient with yourself, when you lose your temper or act from the flesh as opposed to the spirit. Anxiety, offense and anger are signs of unhealed traumas. These feelings of frustration indicate more work needs to be done.

The difficult task is to distinguish the difference between a bad situation, a bad behavior and a bad person. Being in a bad place and making a bad decision even though it contradicts your purpose, does not negate that purpose.

Who you are eternally is secure and what you have erroneously done is temporary. The process of Spirtual maturity includes forbearance and long suffering, forgiveness is equally good for the giving and for the receiving, have some for yourself.

Romans 8:30
And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
