Amending

Today I stressed out about a few relationships in my life. I stressed a bit over money. I stressed out over the decisions I have to make. I really didn’t believe I would be a strong enough leader to be strong enough to not go with peer pressure when hard decisions have to be made. I stressed about not having a reason to wake up early in the morning since my morning babysitting job breaks for the summer. Overall, I stressed out over change.

I finished my step study questions this afternoon before going to step study tonight. The lesson is on Amends. I continued a crazy conversation I am having with God in this process. One of the things that was super exciting to me was I have made amends with a good number of people on my list already. Some of them entirely accidentally.

I think one of the coolest things about going through CR for me has been that my character is changing. I love that making amends comes up organically in my life now. I love that I accidentally made amends with some people. I love I am becoming willing to stand up for myself and protect myself like on Sunday. I see it as a sign of growth. I am beginning to value myself.

That being said, I sure can open my mouth sometimes and prove myself a fool. Ugh.

Oh, and the sandals of peace and helmet of salvation verse was in my morning Bible reading plan today. Exactly what I need to live as Christ incarnate in this world.

Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues. – Proverbs 17:28

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. – Ephesians 6:13-17
