New International Version
For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
“Dear Sister In Christ,
The other day you wrote from the heart on a Christian Women’s Social Site…. What Courage it took for you to step up and ask for feedback with such transparency & vulnerability.
Is it fair to say, it likely felt to you ‘all heck then broke loose’?
I am writing an open letter to let you know my remorse & deep sorrow at having played any part in creating further feelings of being judged….the comment(s) were clearly written by US collectively from our hearts as Women Who Have Gone ahead (aka ” been there experienced that” rejection/judgment piece and wanting to help).
To reset the scenario you’ve stepped up, written what we all feel/felt ‘i’ve been judged’ for being me. Truly I say we mean well. OY! The hurt & pain of rejection is universal for every Christ follower or pre Believer;every man Woman and Child. Well intentioned humans!.
Rarely do I reply in open forums but felt led that day, to respond to your pure heart’s wondering.You didn’t ask for coaching, mentoring, healing, “correction” or resources. You asked to be heard!
Please forgive me for implying I’d taken your situation too lightly, flippantly or judgmentally. NEVER!!! I hear you, your heart, your desires….to belong.
Please, Sisters…find a Christ centered place that embraces you – in all your feminine, Female, single Woman, Married-Woman-‘InAComplicatedRelationshipWoman’-SIngle-Mother-Bubbly-Joy-filled- spunkiness. You are Loved and Adored by Christ your King. (and all of us as well )
Bless you indeed.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.The correct response?
