This morning as I began my quiet time I was drawn to the "Joy Dare Collection" from Ann Voskamp's blog.
The challenge for this day is to write Three Gifts Found in Difficult People.
I love when God shows off and brings all things in my life right back to Himself.
I wrote the following in my quiet time notebook:
3 Gifts found in difficult people
- prayer - turns me back to Christ - reminds me that I was created for good works (Eph 2:1) and that I should do all things as if for God not for men (Col 3:23).
- laughter - because sometimes people are so absurdly difficult, the situation becomes hilarious.
- lessons learned - the lesson of how not to treat others
I read yesterday that in removing the word "so" from my conversations will help me present myself clearer when I speak.
My prayer today is:
through the guidance of the Holy Spirit
I will seek to see others a Christ does,
I will look for the joy and laughter in the hard moments and
I will treat others as if they are Christ.
What a lesson I have to share with the Young Girls' Bible Study.
Thank you Ann Voskamp for the reminder to find the gifts.
