There are times when things make us truly angry . . . we want nothing else but to scream out at the top of our lungs . . . to ‘blow off steam’ . . . to cry rivers of tears . . . to lash out . . . to hurt back . . . whatever your way of handling conflict is, there is truly only ONE thing we need to do when our world has seemingly been turned on its head . . . that is to:

GIVE IT OVER TO GOD

Know that if you’re hurting, He’s hurting too . . .

If your heart is breaking over something, think of how much more His heart is breaking over it . . .

Ask Him for His heart in the matter. Ask Him to reveal to You His love for the people around you. Ask Him to help you walk in His ways at all times, even the difficult ones like what we are facing right now in our nation / our world.

Dear ones, we MUST remember that it is His KINDNESS that leads to repentance.

Yes, we need to have righteous indignation over the situation at hand, but we must also stop, breathe in His presence, rest there, then proceed as He directs us . . . and I can guarantee that it will be a FIRM but LOVING response.

~ hate the sin . . . but . . . love the sinner ~

Remember the grace He has given us and be His ambassador . . . get yourself into worship mode, seek His presence, saturate yourself in Him and then we will be able to stand firm in His love, not showing any actions or attitudes that can be perceived as hate or malice for that only gives the enemy more ammo in his artillery.

    Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
