I just watched a DVD called More Than Dreams.
Rather, I watched the first two of five vignettes.
The video represents the stories of five muslims, from five different muslim nations, who each has a vision of Jesus Christ calling them to Him.
I've heard of this phenomena for a few years now.
Each person is struggling to know God and to know His will for their life, to have a close relationship with Him.
What struck me most was the first story of Dini, an Indonesian girl who is struggling with unforgiveness, even after becoming a Christian.
Events conspire to bring her to a position where she must deal with this, even as she tells her story to a stranger on a train. Very remarkable, moving story.
As I watched this, I realized that I must come to grips with the unforgiveness, bitterness, anger and hostility towards those who enabled Obama (and Obama himself!!! Lord Help Me!) to ruin this country.
Og at Neanderpundit was describing his feelings about this and I found myself in agreement.
Yet I have two women in my church (friends in fact, both of whom were very supportive of Scherie while she was recovering) who are also in the Bible Study I moderate/teach, and they both voted for Obama.
I cannot let this anger impede my responsibility to teach that class, or interact in church. (and life).
This morning I was watching Dr. Charles Stanley speak on TV. And he was speaking about forgiveness, and how we must walk in forgiveness to walk with God.
I get the message, now I need the technique.
I must balance my sense of righteous anger at the situation with the knowledge that they really do "Know not what they do".
The same goes toward the millions of Christians who could not get off their butts and pull the lever for the mormon.
I must forgive them also, whether they want it or not. I'm sure they don't.
