GOSSIP – DOES JESUS CARE

Does Jesus Care

In the last few months, I have had two people come to me and specifically state, “I don’t know if you have heard the gossip about me, but I just want to tell you myself what is true and what is not true.

This has caused me to ache deep in my heart for them and caused me to have mixed emotions.

One of honor that that person cared that I know their business and the truth about them.

Second, the great realization that what God thinks is far more important than what I think of them.

My first reaction is to hold up my hands to stop them and tell them that they  do not need to feel that they owe me an explanation and that it really is not my business.

In both cases those dear ones went on to explain to me their heartaches and concerns,

In the course of the conversation I tried very hard to help them understand that it was important for them to be sure that they talked with the Lord (both told me they were Christians)  and make sure that He knew there heart and to seek His leading and will about the whole situation so that He would be glorified.

Are you having a conflict with someone who has maligned you and your heart is aching.
“Tell Jesus, Tell Jesus, He will listen He will heed”. “Does Jesus Care?”

Yes, Jesus does care.

Isaiah 40:11
He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart… “

Go to Him in prayer and lay your burden at His feet and tell Him your great desire to do right and honor Him with your life and then if necessary set things right  with the Lord (I John 1:9), then  between yourself and those who seem to be offended.  If they will not accept your attempts to make things right, give it all to the Lord and let it go.  Do what you can to make your own situation honorable before the Lord and then go on with HIM doing all in your power to dispel any false accusations and make sure there is no reason for the perceived situation.

God is faithful and He loves you… TRUST HIM today.
