Someone had the impression to send me the following photo and caption.  It really ministered to me. 



Caption to the photo:

I left the front door open while I was bringing in the groceries and after the third trip to the car I found a hummingbird in my kitchen! I got my butterfly net, stood on the kitchen table, and after multiple failed attempts, trapped the bird in the net at the ceiling. Always with my camera at the ready, I took this photo as I opened my hand to let the bird go outside.


SANDY INTERPRETATION:  To me, this said that when someone inappropriately invades our personal boundaries with their opinions, that no matter how strongly we feel the need to capture their wrong mindsets with the truth... in the end we need to resist wrestling in debate and kindly escort them out the door, release them and let them go.  ... In forgiveness and mercy with freedom to go and do what they will do.  ... whether that is to continue in the same wrong mindset or change in a new direction


Since that is the only scriptural resolution to invasions of our personal boundaries, I saw the futility of wrestling with another's soul and mindsets and the grief it causes the Lord.  We may point them to the truth if we are humble to share and they are humble to receive.  But wrestling to capture someone with the truth is grievous to the Holy Spirit.  Wrestling with a person is soul power in an effort to control.  Only God can open blind eyes to His truth and only God can bring real change.

HEARD:  You convince a women against her will and she’s of the same opinion still.


Zech 4:6-7  NKJV

'Not by might nor by power , but by My Spirit,' Says the LORD of hosts. 'Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone  with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"


2 Tim 2:24-26 AMP

And the servant of the Lord must not be quarrelsome (fighting and contending). Instead, he must be kindly to everyone and mild-tempered [preserving the bond of peace]; he must be a skilled and suitable teacher, patient and forbearing and willing to suffer wrong.  He must correct his opponents with courtesy and gentleness, in the hope that God may grant that they will repent and come to know the Truth [that they will perceive and recognize and become accurately acquainted with and acknowledge it],  And that they may come to their senses [and] escape out of the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him, [henceforth] to do His [God's] will.
