For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
The last sentence pierced my heart with great sorrow.
I know someone who is suffering greatly mentally, physically and spiritually every day.
All of her life she has been a user and abuser. She loved to cause fights. She just used and abused men and women. Now, she is old and her body is all broken down and she needs help.
Jesus sent His servant home to take care of her and she did nothing but abuse him and laugh about it.
Now, she is in constant pain.
Godly men and women have tried to get her to repent and stop it but she refuses to even admit her wicked deeds. I know the Lord has spoken to her in dreams and in sermons.
Again she just ignores Him as she did the others.
Jesus’ patience has run out for her.
But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. Romans 1:18–20The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
A catastrophe will strike you suddenly, one for which you are not prepared. Isaiah 47:11 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
About three years ago her health took a nose dive and she has been suffering every day.
Yet, she still, refuses to repent.
Her son feels no sympathy for her because she showed no sympathy towards him and indeed made jokes about his suffering which she caused.
Warning: be careful of the seeds you sow tomorrow because you will indeed be eating the harvest of them.
Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Galatians 6:7 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense. Ezekiel 7:9 ) for paying back the wicked for the vile deeds which they delighted in causing the innocent to suffer. I praise You in the name of The Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you have a grateful heart towards He who has given so much to you. indeovi vas ( may you live with Jesus in Latin )
Seleh- stop and think about it.

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-31 New International Version
Remember the old pirate movies where they look through a spyglass. Is that not the way many people look at conflicts? Through one lens and that lens is their own opinion. They refuse to listen to anybody else. They speak, you listen. You speak, they don’t listen. It is called selective hearing and is the major problem in conflicts whether it is between parents and children (it is just as important for parents to listen to children as it is for children to listen to parents by the way), husbands and wives, or neighbors.
Instead it is important to look though binoculars to see the big picture. We need to sit down with pen and paper and listen to what the other person has to say and write it down. While person A is speaking person B listens without interrupting and is writing down what is said. This is then repeated with person B speaking and person A listening.
Next try to look at how and why the other person feels the way they do.
If you cannot solve the problem between yourselves it is important to get someone who does not take sides and you both trust to mediate between you. You both agree to the mediator’s decision and act upon it. It is one thing to agree to it, it is just as important to act on it.
I have met many people that it was like talking to a wall. They pretended not to hear what I was saying because they didn’t care.
What I have learned is to inform them when they are just as willing to listen as they are to talk, we can continue. Then walk away. I do not give in to them no matter how much they pout like little babies, threaten and whine. Many times that means distancing myself from them. It has cost me many friendships but I am better off without them because they were very self centered and greedy.
Now of course it is different if you are married or it is parents and children living in the same place.
When I was a teacher and a student was naughty I did not scream and yell at them. I would sit them down and talk with them. They knew what they did was wrong. Just be patient with them. Once they admit what they did was wrong then we talk about how they can make it right. After that is settled we work on them making it right. If they were naughty to another student they would apologize to them in class. When they would have a difficult time doing this, teacher was right there softly encouraging them, informing them it was the right thing to do and I know you can do it. Then I would encourage the hurt child to forgive. Teacher would then give them big huggies and inform them he is proud of them. They love and respect teachers like that. I will tell you, the children in my classes were very well behaved. That is why I always got the worst classes. But, in two months there was a complete change.
So too is it necessary for us to do this with each other.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (The Lord our provider) please provide me to have both eyes open to how to heal any broken relationship in my life. I ask in the name of He who has taught me to have eyes to see Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.
Jehovah is a busy God. He is holding the universe together, helping His children and preparing a Heavenly home for us. Yet, even He takes a day off to rest (to lead by example the need for rest, not that He needs one). Joseph a son of Jehovah
