My prayer:I am confused tonight God. I know we all have our issues and complicated pasts but sometimes people and their actions confuse me.
God, fill me with your grace for those around me. Help me to see where they are coming from. I choose to forgive and to let go of any offense, right now, and I will leave it with you. I pray that you heal the bruise that the offense left in me.
Thank you Jesus.
What God Said Tonight:Offended? Why should you be offended by someone else acting out through their pain?
I need you to see the pain behind the action. Not only so you can sympathize and treat them with grace but also so you can love them with a Godly love and be my conduit for healing in their lives.
If you get offended by the action, it limits what I can do for them and it limits what I can do through you. Each time you feel that offense coming on, regcognize the opportunity for ministry and love in that situation.
If you let me I will use you to bring about their healing, I love you.
