Not Instantly

I had to do a lot of praying today.  Prayers for peace.  Prayers for patience.  And prayers for one of God’s children who  . . . hmmm . . . how to finish this sentence . . . who needs prayers much more than needs to hear the words I would love to say.

When someone is creating a whole situation that isn’t real and sending slanderous and accusatory threats . . well . . it’s hard not to take it personal.  But the truth is, that is says a lot more about that person than it does about me.

God said to turn the other cheek.  He never said to be stupid.  So my t’s are crossed and my i’s are dotted.  I’ll be prepared for whatever comes next.  I’ll continue to try my best to be polite.   And I’ll keep praying.  God knows I need his help on this one for sure!

Today was one of those times when the peace did not come instantly.   There were lots of prayers.  Prayers for myself.  Prayer for the other person.  And prayers to keep this in God’s hands.  He’ll certainly handle this better than me.  At the end of the day, we are all his children; and a good parent loves ALL their children no matter what.

Tonight I am thankful that we do not have to walk thru this life alone.  I would be one mess of a person if I had to deal with other people by myself.  I know for sure how far I’ve come and how much of this was with divine intervention.
