I've had moments like that! I rush off to my bible, open it up randomly and yes, God does give me some scripture:
Prov 21 v 9: It is better to dwell in a corner of a housetop, than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
Prov 21 v 19: It is better to dwell in the wilderness than with a contentious and angry woman.
Prov 14 v 1: Every wise woman builds her house but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.
At this point I'm thinking "Okay Lord, but what about that person? Its so unfair, etc, etc." And God's saying, "You work on you and I'll work on them!"
So I stand at a crossroad:
- I can continue chasing that person onto the rooftop or into the desert (some peace and quiet - just saying - smiles), or
- I can try to build my home with God's help, minding my tongue, focusing on changing my attitude and leaving the other person in God's hands.
|Work on my attitude!|
