Try vs Trust

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34

How can I trust Jesus in a relationship that seems impossible?

We are ALL God’s children. Even the people that hard hard for me to love. Rapest, abusers, killers, etc…they are God’s children, too. I know. VERY hard to love them. What about taking a step out and praying for them as God’s children. My life has been TRANSFORMED in this area. The first step was praying for them. “God, I know you love them because they are your children. I DON’T, but I pray they grow and learn in you as your child, just as you want me to grow and learn in you. I don’t like them, but I LOVE you and I know you still love them. Help me get rid of the hate and bitterness. Amen”

What I learned today…All relationships have a chance for forgiveness.
