I think God actually grabbed my tongue that day! Something very unkind and untrue was said to me. Instead of defending myself or barking back, I simply said, “God bless you.”
“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.” Romans 12: 14
I’m thankful that God gave me peace and composure when I was under fire. In all transparency, when I left the situation and was alone, I bawled like a baby, called a friend, and thought of all of the things I “should have said.” I may have momentarily forgotten the “do not curse” part.
God protected me from myself that day. He only allowed a blessing to come out of my mouth. And the truth is, that person needed God’s blessing more than my reactive ramblings. I pray that you don’t face a similar situation today. But if you do, may God give you a blessing to share. And a good friend to cry with! – Sandi
