Good morning brothers and sisters. I got hurt yesterday! My feelings and my heart got hurt! It started out as a bad day and to only try and get worse. Now I will spare you the details. But as it got worse, I could feel myself getting angry. And then the Holy Spirit got a hold of me. And I just stopped all that I was doing and started praying. And as I was praying, I could feel the Holy Spirit calming what was raging in me. Then as the evening came, someone hurt me. And I had a lot of mixed feelings. I was upset. My heart was hurting. But as I went to sleep and got back up this morning, I had a new perspective. God spoke. He basically sad it is ok hurt. It is ok to have mixed feelings. But it is NOT ok to sin. So I had to then pray about these feelings. I had to release them before they had me sinning. And this morning, the Holy Spirit brought me to this scripture. Ephesians 4:31-32. 31-Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32- And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. It is ok that this person hurt me. Because in obeying and listening to God, yes I am hurt but I am not angry nor vengeful. Instead the person that hurt me, I will forgive the hurt. I will speak kindness and love over them. I will not allow them hurting me cause me to sin. Lord, help me. This is hard. But I know that to show Jesus, I must be an imitator of Jesus. Can you? Rise up child of God, rise up!
