I know that 2019 has been a turbulent year. It has been filled at various times with miracles and heartaches. Whatever you have experienced from ‘this world’ it is to be expected. It won’t be the exact same problems but there will be trials and tribulations (John 16:33)
You have many choices. You can respond to stressful events with an unchristlike expression of anger. If you choose to do that ask yourself: ‘Has this really been a good choice in 2019?’ Or we can respond to stressful events with thoughts of peace from Christ. Giving a blessing to our adversary instead of trying to inflict pain.
A new experiment
Maybe you haven’t experimented with giving your adversaries a blessing. This new year is a good time for that. By the way it works. Ask Jacob. (Gen. 33:1-16)Rev. Dr. Craig A. Brewick, Christian Hope Counseling
