I love to ride and look at the buildings when driving into the city, I enjoy looking at old buildings most. The statues and the shape of the bricks can make a building look amazing until you stumble across gang signs, and hate drawn all over a wonderful looking building. That is defacing property and it makes me sad. Some people feel powerful spray painting walls of churches, schools and sometimes people homes and businesses. It is as if they know that you have a special gift and they don't want you to find out just how special you are.
Some feel that if you only knew just how valuable you really are that you will no longer have a need to be in their life, because you make them look better with them than if they were by themselves. "Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake". Luke 6:22
Beloved you are God's Property and anyone who tells you that you are worthless, that you will never amount to anything, or judge you because of your past now that you have seen God's light, they are defacing God's Property and have to answer to Him for that. You are valuable and highly favored and no one has the right to make you feel as though you are not. Well you maybe thinking he/she doesn't say those kinds of things, he/she just makes me feel like I don't matter and that my feelings don't count.
A person doesn't have to say those thing with words. This can happen when you are betrayed by a best friend or sibling, or when a spouse cheats on you or when you suffer a hate crime of some sort. Sometimes hate crime happen on a job when a coworker lie to get you fired, or accuse you of something that you did not do. "is any among you afflicted? Let him pray". James 5:13
None of us are perfect and we all have sinned and fallen short of God's Glory, but pray for your enemies and bless them, for the lord will surly bless you when you do this. Some will realize when they are wrong and do right, some won't right away, and there are some who never will until it too late. I know that it hurts beloved and you feel like all is for not, you feel as though you are the biggest fool in the world. Well your not and God has not forgotten you in all of your trials and fights. The evil one may have won this battle, but baby you fight back with the Word of God, Stab him in the heart with prayer, and smack him upside the head with praise, and when you get threw he will know that he's been in a fight with you and in the end God wins all wars. Love and Peace to all!
