“The same glory you gave me, I gave them, So they’ll be as unified and together as we are— I in them and you in me. Then they’ll be mature in this oneness, And give the godless world evidence That you’ve sent me and loved them In the same way you’ve loved me.” (John‬ ‭17:22)

She’d made it ‘very’ clear that she didn’t want ‘anything’ to do with Christianity and for almost 6 months went out of her way to make my day at work as miserable as possible.

It had been a particularly difficult morning at the office that day, there were only the two of us in the office, and she had been exceptionally mean, maliciously snidey and just plain horrible. So much so that I went to the loo and begged GOD to let me quit and leave.

The next day however she seemed completely ‘different’ and this was the story she told to me later at lunch. “I don’t know why I hated you, I just did. That night when you went home, I could see I’d hurt you terribly and it made me really happy. I even told my husband later and we laughed together.

“We were due to go out that night and just as I was about to take a bath the doorbell rang. It was the lady next door who asked if we could water her plants while she was away. She wouldn’t stop talking and it turned out that she was another ‘happy clappy Christian. Well me and my husband just couldn’t stop laughing when she left.

“I finally got to get a soak in my bath and was still laughing when I slipped climbing out. Somehow I fell horribly and landed so badly that I heard my back crack and I lay there paralysed!

“My husband ran it at my screams and we didn’t know what to do – I couldn’t move! He gently carried me onto the bed. I was crying with the pain, and then sobbing. My husband ran downstairs to call an ambulance and they said they were extremely busy but they’d be here as soon as possible. My world just collapsed…

“Then, for some reason, I started to think of you! Everything was playing back to me and I realised how horrid I’d been to you. As I was thinking these thoughts, Jesus appeared to me – right there in my bedroom! I felt awful for all I’d done and told him I was sorry. He just smiled and touched me and all the pain just left.” ❤️

Monday

If we boast that we have no sin, we’re only fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time
