Around trust sealing our contract for blessings to share generously --- --- heart of mine was settled having never languished in doubt's qualm upon steadfast prayer brace tied by ministerial engagements. With earnest faith my anticipation yearned for return of investment flow --- --- until I learned that such agreement was gripped with deceit and I ought to be freed from its depressing cord. Oh, I was fooled by someone my soul regarded as a sister --- ---grievously afflicting me against virtuous fortitude propping my integrity challenging even my belief on genuine equity and fairness. I admit having agonized over series of investigation rigors court hearing struggles--- --- testifying before witness stand while facing the culprit regarded as an accomplice yet someone so familiar to me. God be praised for His mercy and truth enabling my spirit to choose His direction --- --- to file for case dismissal, not because hopelessness loomed or futility beckoned (since imprisonment awaited the offender) but then I wanted to follow my Lord Jesus Christ in ascending toward the high road of life: forgiving* others as I was a pardoned sinner offering gracious peace granted by the Holy Spirit. Now, grateful to the Saviour for such decision I’m reaching-out to others sharing His compassion --- --- exposing powerful love at work amidst divine holy justice warmed by His wondrous serenity.
*Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Oh Beata, what a painful and hurtful betrayal from "a sister!" Once again you are a living example of God's word abiding in you and your actions. Thank you for sharing this gut wrenching experience and being a light in the darkness. Congratulations on your win!

"but then I wanted to follow my Lord Jesus Christ in ascending toward the high road of life: forgiving* others as I was a pardoned sinner" very beautiful and noble thought. Congratulations!

Congratulations. Very interesting and reads as an open book, just as the Bible would like to be with us.
