Have you ever made a mistake? If you say no than your lying. Everyone makes mistakes throughout their lives even when you don’t want to. Maybe you’ve had to be the person who encounters someone’s mistakes. Maybe you have to coach them through it. We all are humans and no one perfect, but it’s how you react when someone or yourself makes a mistake that really counts.
Being able to own up to your own mistake is he’s enough, but being able to coach some one through it, or even encounter someone’s mistake is a bigger thing to do.
If you want to get technical, Romans 3:23 says ,”For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Basically in a different term, “We all have made mistakes that fell short of Gods expectations.” But if you remember, John 3:16 says that: “For God so loved the world, that he sent his only son. That whosever believes in him should not perish but have ever lasting life.”
He loves us even in our faults. God told us in the New Testament that, “Others will see me in you by the way you love one another.”; (I paraphrased, but you know the verse.). We are called to forgive and love each other. The bible says to forgive 7×70 times. That’s a lot. It’s not easy.
I have been sitting on both sides of this. I have been the person who made a mistake, but I did not receive mercy. I still had to forgive in that situation and say I was sorry even after everything.
But I have also been on the side where you had to encourage someone and keep going after a mistake was made. Getting mad about a problem won’t solve It. It won’t make anything change; it only makes whoever in the situation feel horrible for what was done.
Jesus forgave us when we wasn’t even deserving of his love. He showed us mercy when we don’t deserve it. Remember that. Maybe you are angry, upset, etc over something. Please remember we are supposed to be Christ like. Show mercy. It makes a bigger difference if you do than yelling, crying, or being rude ever would.
Mistakes… There not easy to deal with, but stay calm, love one another, & forgive. Isn’t that what Jesus would do?

Hey & welcome to my blog!
A little about me:
I am Marli Wright. I am the writer of Just Being Marli. I am also the owner of Marli Visuals as well. I am from a small town in Southeastern Oklahoma. I am not a fancy writer by no means, but if you understand it than its a God thing.
A little about this page:
Just Being Marli was created by me for many reasons. It all started on Instagram where I hashtaged #JustBeingMarli with photos of me or quotes that I had written. Many people started to comment on it loving the idea.
A little about this blog:
This blog is to inspire people. I and literally, "Just Being Marli.". God created me to be me. He has plans for me, and I believe this is one of them. I feel like I am called to write each post and that is what I strive to do. I am a Christian and I do fail often. This blog is just a place where I come to write verses and thoughts that have helped me understand God better. I do not have all the answers & I won't act like I do. However if you have any questions; please ask. If I don't know the answer I will try and find it for you.
What causes me to write:
June of 2017 I became a mom to a wonderful baby boy Rhett. In 13 hours I learned about love, grief, life, & death. After having to give my son back to God, my faith was tested. I write because I know hurt. I write because I know others know this pain and I want to bring hope. I also write, because I feel God has made me to do so. Most of all, because my son loved and that’s all he knew. Love. Pure innocence love. And he know is whole and healthy in heaven. I want to share that innocence God felt love with others through writing. That is what inspires me most.
In 2019 God gave us a beautiful Rainbow baby girl, we named Selah. God showed us his promises are true and he never breaks them. He showed me how to have joy and hope again. And because of Gods love and grace; I have two beautiful babies.
This blog may have started as a hashtag, but now it has meaning that is deeper than even I imagined.
