“On those days when we're not ready to stop being offended, not ready to forgive, still determined to dish out the silent treatment, what we're actually saying is, "Thanks, but I don't want to become more like the Savior today. Maybe tomorrow, but not today." Perhaps those are the times when we need to pray the hardest, the times it becomes clear that a change in behavior is not enough--that we must have a change in nature.”
Sheri L. Dew,
Saying It Like It Is
I love Sheri Dew. She is a powerful speaker and able to say succinctly what I muddle around in my heart and mind and am not able to find the words for. I revisited this thought tonight and just wanted to share it with you.
