LMA Step #8: BROTHERLY LOVE
Make a list of all persons we have harmed and become willing to make amends to them all as Holy Spirit leads and guides.
Step 8 requires some serious prayer and meditation. Making a list of people we have harmed, in some cases, may be quite long. Relax….at this point, you are only required to make a list and become willing to make amends to these people. Remember, slow and easy. Seek guidance and counsel. Listen to the Holy Spirit. The word shema means to hear/listen and obey the voice of the Spirit. Shema slow and easy, but keep moving. Try it.
Psalm 116:7 (TPT): Now I can say to myself and to all, “Relax and rest, be confident and serene, for the Lord rewards fully those who simply trust in him.”
Relax and listen (shema) to the Spirit. Be confident and serene... allow serenity to be your friend and companion. Relax and shema.
Blessings All Around,
