Falsely Accused

Have you ever been accused of doing something you didn’t do? It happened to me today. I got a phone call from a relative who had not spoke to me since this summer even though I had made a few attempts at contacting her.

Supposedly she called to patch things up but in the process accused me of doing something I didn’t do. There’s no way for me to prove to her that I am telling the truth so she’ll just have to take my word for it. I have my doubts about whether she believes me or not and I felt bad about it …. at first.

Guess what, I began to remember what I preach to everyone else. “Live out of who you are in Christ, not what someone else says about you.” I realized I was giving the enemy a stronghold by tempting me to worry about how I was going to “fix” this problem. But I came to the conclusion I don’t have a problem, SHE DOES!

Thank you God for calling me back from regressing into the old habit of pleasing, striving and trying to fix other people and their problems. I’m okay with the way things were left,and I’ll keep on loving and praying for her, but I’m living in Roman 8:1 Therefore there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus…
