Ridică-te şi continuă

Am vazut oameni care au inceput sa faca ceva. Pe alţii, care au şi reuşit să facă ceva. Ceea ce multora le-a oprit lucrarea şi i-a secătuit a fost dezamăgirea, faptul că mentori, colaboratori sau oameni în care au investit s-au întors cu atitudine ostilă, rănindu-i. 
Faptul că cei din jur ne pot răni nu trebuie să constituie motiv de a abandona lucrarea harului. Pentru că harul pote fi chiar această ocazie: de a trăi între oameni, de a.i iubi pe oameni, de a te lupta cu ego-ul pentru a stoarce din inima străpunsă o iertare veritabilă.
Iată ce spune TDJakes despre nevoia de a trece peste durerile pricinuite de cei lângă care ne închinăm de ani de zile, de a continua să lucrezi în mijlocul lor spre gloria Lui şi pt creşterea ta personală:
“Let me make this clear: people are going to hurt you.

This seems like an obvious fact, but you’d be surprised to know about how many people I meet who are feverishly searching for a place where no one can offend them.

If you constantly flee from offense, you’re running from the very thing God wants to use to transform you.

Searching for a place where no one will hurt you sounds appealing, but it’s a waste of time. You might as well seek out the opposite of freedom—captivity!

One of the reasons the body of Christ is stuck in some bad habits and some juvenile adolescence is an attitude that says, “I don’t have to take this—I’m leaving for some place where no one will hurt me.”

That’s not good for you, and it leads to spiritual imprisonment.

While you’re praying to avoid adversity and offense, God’s orchestrating the circumstances of your life to bring you right back into those environments so He can build your perseverance and confidence.

Here’s the bottom line: God’s not searching for perfect people, but people who will be “all in” for the long haul. The Kingdom needs those who will continually throw off the spiritual infections that enter the blood stream through inevitable offenses in life.

If you want to go higher, you’ve got to turn opposition and offense into thanksgiving and forgiveness.”
