Does someone frustrate you?

Recently, I had some interaction w a person that really gets under my skin.  I don’t like this person for various reasons that are of course justified in my mind.  So last night, God & I had a chat about this person. I was explaining to God how it was ok for me to be cold to this person because I had tried to be nice & respectful on many occasions and they had been super rude back to me.  God reminded me about how Jesus said to be kind to our enemies – not just to try & get them to be nice back.  Jesus said to love our enemies, full stop.  So ultimately, how a person responds to me, isn’t my responsibility.  It is, however, my responsibility on how I behave & treat others.

With that being said, unless God does something miraculous, I’ll probably never be “friends” with this person, but at the minimum, I can be nice.  May God help you & me to be gracious, kind & nice 🙂

  1. I HAVE ALSO HAVE HAD SITUATIONS WITH OTHERS WHO WERE NOT ONLY RUDE BUT MALICIOUS. IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO BUT I WAS NIEVE AND TOO IDEALISTIC SO IT HURT ME TRMENDOUSLY AS IT HAPPENED WITH THOSE IN THE CHURCH I WAS LEAD TO BY GOD WHEN I FIRST BELIEVED. IT DID CHANGE MY IDEAISM TOWARD OTHERS BUT IT NEVER CHANGED MY FAITH IN GOD IT ONLY INCREASED MY FAITH AND FAITHFULNESS TO JESUS MY ABBA FATHER GOD AS HE NEVER WRONGED ME BUT ALWAYS ALWAYS LOVED ME EVEN IN HIS LONG SUFFERING PATIENT LOVE FOR ME. HE NEVER GAVE UP ON ME HE NEVER STOPPED PROTECTING AND GUIDING ME. HE IS TRULY THE KEEPER OF MY SOUL. HIS CONTINUOUS LOVE IS WHAT I LIVE FOR. PRAISE JAH !! HE IS THE ONLY TRUE AND LIVING GOD, THE ALMIGHTY WARRIOR GOD WHO SENDS HIS WARRIOR AND GUARDIAN ANGELS TO PROTECT ALL THOSE HE LOVES !!! THANKYOU JESUS. THANKS SARAH.

    • Oh Sarah, I so needed to be reminded of this. I am currently dealing with two “bully” types at work that are affecting our team’s morale and have been outright rude to me and others. Thank you for the reminder to pray for them (again :-)) and to be gracious and kind to them and that it’s not my battle but the Lord’s. Thank you, Sue
