The Colors of People

The Lord has been showing me the colors of people lately and I’ve really been struggling with this. Poppa, why am I having such a hard time with this? Help me to understand and let the bitterness go. Then He gave me an illustration of colors. Once the color has spilled out from a bottle it leaves a stain behind. The liquid that has “leaked” out can be carefully placed back in the bottle, but the stain doesn’t easily lift from the surfaces it touched. Once a person’s true nature has been revealed it’s hard to see them as you did before. That doesn’t mean you don’t practice forgiveness when the situation calls for it. It means you practice awareness. You now know their true nature and you don’t try to paint it another color. As I was writing this I was wondering, “Do people who talk out of both sides of their mouth even know it?” As I was thinking that thought I was reminded of James 1:8, “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” Tonight, I am thankful for discernment. Admittedly, I haven’t been handling it in the best way. Forgive me Lord as I let the hurt go. Thank You for showing me colors. Help me to leave a beautiful stain of honesty and integrity, not dark smudges of double mindedness and doubt from those that know me. In Jesus name Amen! I am so thankful God loves me in the middle of my imperfections and still speaks to me in those moments I’m struggling to understand life’s little “hard” things, even when I’m facing them with a frown. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

    1. It’s a rough lesson to learn. Both when you see the colors of people that aren’t as “pretty” as you once thought and when your reaction takes you outside of who you should be in Christ! But I love how our Poppa opened it up to me. ❤️ He is so good!
