Don't Judge Me

Yes you read correctly, lately I have felt as though I am being examined under a microscope. You know what, if your my friend and really know me I mean REALLY KNOW ME, then don't demand things from ME. Don't say you have to, no you ask and let me decide. I am tired of people trying to make me feel guilty over decisions I have made. GUESS what people or friends when I made those decisions for me they were the right ones. Only God really knows me and still He has not forsaken me. Though others would say different because I have been sick and maybe that is God's way of saying I'm punishing you. Am I angry YES, at God NO, but at those who are pushing ME. Dammit I'm already stressed and don't need that added pressure. Do you think that because I have not followed your path that I do not talk to God, I have to say that I talk more to Him now than I did when I was trying to walk the narrowed path. Why? You probably ask yourself cause I know I need Him more now. You see sometimes we do things, or pretend to be something to please others, but are we pleasing GOD! UM things that make you go UM. Do I still praise Him, yes everyday. Do I still love Him, of course because He created my inmost being: He knit me together in my mother's womb. (Psalm 139:13) It's my favorite verse in the bible.
Some may say we need to fellowship in the house of the LORD, this is where you gain knowledge in the Word, or where you get support and prayers. Yes this is true, but the Bible also says in (1John 5-7) God is the light: in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light and HE is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus, his Son purifies us from all sin.
Listen we all fall short of the Glory of God. When you read the Bible the word comes alive, and since this is true how can I be dead when the word of God is still Alive in Me.
Again I say don't judge Me, for you do not know my path or my walk with God, the word says "Do not judge or you to will be judged" (Mt 7:1)

so to my scrapping friends here is a layout I created to release my anger.

Girl, of course I don't know what is going down, but I love that your response to someone who is spiritually abusing you is to use a Paulo quote. He is so not narrow road, and your spirit of openness and truthseeking comes through loud and clear through his words. I think you know I've had similar pain, and I am glad you are able to get yours out and get on with your life. You do not need to justify, God did the work for you, you just need to be right with Him, and I know you are. Love ya girl!

PS God doesn't "punish" us. Sometimes He doesn't stop pain, but its not to "get" us. And through it all, He's there to hold you safe.

I hear you! I can't stand judgemental people either. It shouldn't matter if you are a christian or not. No one has the right to judge another person, tho they do it all the time!
