A Story from My Life – Accused to Peaceful

Not too long ago a little story of my life was posted on Mentoring Moments for Christian Women.

Sometimes it takes me a while to learn a lesson.

  1. Yes, I’ve been falsely accused. It was awful.
    And truthfully, I am falsely accused regularly in my own home b/c I live with sinners and I am one.

    I guess the real truth is I am not good at giving up my rights in most situations. So I am going to trust God to keep helping me with this. Thanks for a great reminder.

    But wait! Did she ever figure out you aren’t a big fat meany?!!! I know that’s not the point and all . . . 😉 . . . but you kinda left us hangin! I can relate to some degree. There have been times in my life I felt I was misunderstood and even though I know I’m the nicest person in the world, sometimes others don’t see that or bother to try. And oh that can drive a person batty. But you really do have to give it to God and let go. It’s amazing the peace He can bring when we allow him to. I loved your description of how quickly the knot on your stomach was released and peace settled in.

      Jennifer – no, she never did! I ended up writing her a very nice email explaining how much I loved her based on how God sees her and who HE made her to be. And then I apologized (which was so very, very hard because I really hadn’t done anything wrong) for hurting her (even though I didn’t know what I did, evidently something I did hurt her and I needed to take responsibility for that). She sent me an email several days later accepting my apology. That’s it. As far as I know, to this day, she still has no idea what really went on.

  3. Wow. That’s a great challenge Carla! Thanks for sharing :)
