"Been taken for granted? Imagine how GOD feels!"
I saw this on a church sign, and all I could think was "Wow, this is so true!"
Yes, I have been taken for granted. Several times. Too many times to count. Yes, it hurt. A lot. Sometimes it hurt so much that I thought my heart was breaking in two. Sometimes I thought I would never be able to forgive the person who took me for granted. But, I did.
I lived, and I am a better person today because of what has happened to me. I have learned from my experiences and my past.
But, I could never imagine how GOD feels. Who could?
I can, however, reflect on this the next time I feel used or taken for granted. I will know that it is a temporary pain, and it will go away. I know that as long as I am doing the Lord's will, I am on the right path.
I also know that I must follow God's words.
Matthew 6: 14 - 15 (KJV), "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."
