PAPA taught me an extremely important Truth-lesson through Pastor Roshad Thomas from Calvary Chapel Tallahassee a number of years ago. That Truth-lesson became my life verse — Matthew 11:6.
I’ll make this short — go read Matthew 11:6. Then read the context surrounding that one verse.
Then, read (below) how KING JESUS Spoke to me personally (using Pastor Roshad’s words, but translated to fit my personal life):
KING JESUS: “Melanee, can you be okay with suffering from obeying Me? Can you?
“Can you be okay with others misunderstanding you and not defending yourself? Can you?
“Can you be okay with your having sinned against others (or at least hurting them greatly) and then their deciding to separate themselves from you? Can you be okay with that?
“Can you be okay with My being GOD, while simultaneously NOT rescuing you from the fallen earth and it’s fallen people? Can you?”
Me: “Only. By. Your. Strength.” [major loud groan from me to PAPA]
KING JESUS: “Good, Sweeteepie, because blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.” [big hug from PAPA to me]
