The Road to Reconciliation

Here is something I recently told a friend who is standing tall in the midst of life's struggles...

God does not punish us for our sins, it is the sins themselves that do the punishing...
Sins are things we do that cause separation in our lives and in the lives of others. God loves us even when we cause separation in the world and stays present with us as we struggle to reconcile the separations that tear us apart. As you continue to do a great job fixing the separations in your life, you will continue to experience the incredible gift of Grace.

The goal of reconciliation can be a frustration journey. Be aware that these frustrations can trigger other moments of separation which is obviously not what you seek to do. Forgiveness of self and others is the only path to reconciliation...may your journey be blessed my friend.
