The past week has not been all good as there was one disappointing event that got me upset. I went out with my cousin to shop in Bridgetown I think it was Tuesday and when we returned my housemate had locked all of the doors. I was in a rage because he's never done this before and my key was in my room and Joel my other housemate was not home. Anyhow, I had to put my hand through the window and unlock the door so we could get in.
God is merciful! Thankfully I was spared the embarrassment of having to beat down the door. Being upset I wanted to "throw shades" but I didn't. In my mind though I was calling him all sorts of names from bad-mind to selfish. Additionally, my cousin and I didn't hesitate to whisper about him as we expressed our thoughts and feelings about the whole situation.
You know even though we may be the one who is hurt, God always wants us to approach every situation in a Christ like manner and so he brought to my attention a verse that gives direction. It's 3 John 1:11 and it states, "Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God."
Do I need clearer directions than that? Although my housemate has chosen an evil path, its gives me no right to want to do the same if I consider myself a follower of Christ. As I continue to live not knowing what tomorrow holds, I'll let this scripture verse be my guide. I pray that you will do the same.
I'm still shaking my head, lol, but God is good I will get over it. Hahaha
I hope you guys have a productive week. This post is one day late but according to the will of the Lord I'll be here again next Sunday. Lots of love from my room to yours, xoxo
