One thing I have learned in life is that not everyone will agree with your views, your lifestyle or just YOU in general. People can be rude. People talk. People are bullies. And it hurts! But people are also generally GOOD and often don't mean to be so rude. It has become part of our culture to talk about people and point fingers.
This has been a trial for me in my life. I have played both the role of the bully and the one being bullied.
Through A LOT of study and prayer I have found peace on this matter. I know that through my life I will have enemies, 'frenimies', and more. I know that I will be tempted to talk about people and treat people rudely. I KNOW these things for a fact- that is part of life's trials!!
But now I know how to COPE with this trial. I will LOVE. BLESS. DO GOOD. And PRAY.
This scripture has brought me so much peace over the last year of growth and change in my life. I am not perfect, and those around me are not perfect. I can't control what other do or say, but I can control how I feel about them, what I say about them, and what actions I have towards them.
Today I am praying for my enemies. I am praying for strength to love those around me and live in a way that inspires others to do the same.
I know that even though this is the path I choose, many won't choose the same and will remain bitter. But I know that is for God to judge, not me.
I am grateful for my enemies, they have made me stronger and given me a clearer vision of my life and purpose!
I encourage you all to LOVE, to BLESS, to DO GOOD, and to PRAY for all those you come in contact with.
Have a happy Sunday!
