Jehovah is at the Window


 


There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. And he


was given a slingshot to play with. He practiced in the woods, but he


could never hit his targets.


 


Getting a little discouraged; he headed back for dinner. As he was


walking back, he saw Grandma's pet duck. Just on an impulse, he let the


slingshot fly. He hit the duck square in the head, and killed it. He


was shocked and grieved. In a panic, he hid the dead duck in a wood


pile, only to see his sister watching.


 


Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing. After lunch that day


Grandma said, 'Sally, let's wash the dishes.' But Sally said, 'Grandma,


Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen.' Then she whispered to


him, 'Remember the duck?' So Johnny did the dishes.


 


Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and


Grandma said, 'I'm sorry but I need Sally to help make supper.' But


Sally just smiled and said, 'Well, that's all right because Johnny told me


he wanted to help.' She whispered again, 'Remember the duck?' So Sally


went fishing and Johnny stayed to help.


 


After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally's, he


finally couldn't stand it any longer. He came to Grandma and confessed


that he had killed the duck. Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug, and


said, 'Sweetheart, I know. I was standing at the window and I saw the


whole thing. But I love you son. I forgave you. I was just wondering


how long you were going to let Sally make you her slave.'


 


Moral:


Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done that Satan keeps


throwing up in your face, remember - Jehovah was standing at the window


and He saw the whole thing. He was just wondering how long you would


let Satan make a Slave of you.


 


The Great thing about Jehovah is that He not only forgives you, but He


forgets.

Hi

Sister Tirshatha,

 

Thanks for the nice illustration

This particular part of the illustration really touched me but in another way:

 

 

Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug, and

said, 'Sweetheart, I know. I was standing at the window and I saw the

whole thing. But I love you son. I forgave you.

 

Sometimes I just am so saddened by the things I do wrong or things I don't do for Jehovah :depressed:

Not major sins but other things.

And so when I took Grandma's words here and

thought of my Father Jehovah watching me like a Grandma would "watch" her Grandson, I developed tears

as I thought of my Father saying this to me,

 

"Sweetheart, I know what you have done. I was watching you the entire time and I saw not only the things you did wrong

and the things you weren't able to do for me,

but I also saw how bad you felt not wanting to hurt me in any way!

And I also was watching and saw that the things you did wrong were not done on purpose or intentional, but were just mistakes.   . So remember, I love you so much!

And I already forgave you!"

 

 

If this is how my Father watches me, Wow   :uhhuh:

Dear Brother, I know firsthand the measure of undeserved kindness and mercy our Father extends to us all. These days Satan wants us to feel unworthy and we truly are, that is why it is UNDESERVED. But Jehovah wants to heal our hearts, and does so, if we let Him. You are so welcome.
