That Nagging Voice

Our conscience takes no notice of pain inflicted on others until it reaches a point where it gives pain to us. In all cases without exception we are absolutely indifferent to another person's pain until his sufferings make us uncomfortable. ~ Mark Twain

That nagging voice has been silenced.  No, I didn't strangle it, or duct tape it (although that was tempting).  I followed the principles of the book  The Peacemaker and it's like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  HUGE. 

And as tempting as it is to claim credit for this change of circumstance, I have finally come to understand that I am not.  I am but a vessel through which He works.  Before approaching the situation, my prayers were that HE help me find the words to do what I needed to doThat I did was a testament to HIS will not mine.

I think I need that tattooed on my forehead.
