I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
It has been a week of many emotions. There are people I need to learn how to love, and others I need to forgive. I have come to realize that without challenges to the boundaries of love and forgiveness, I would never learn to love or forgive like Jesus does. When others make loving hard, I must let You love them through me. When others are cruel or offensive, I am forced to forgive in a whole new way and find I need You to do that through me also.
Thank you, Lord, for stretching the boundaries and for putting prickly people in my path. Help me to realize every day that these challenges come from You.
In Jesus' name,
