Confessions

Okay….so I have a confession to make. Probably the biggest issue that I have to deal with on a daily basis is people. I am by nature an introvert and I am perfectly okay to be left alone. I can be extroverted when I need to be but sometimes it can be very draining for me. That is when I go into my introvert shell. Anyway, there is a person that I am really struggling with. Her attitude and negativity really get to me. She pouts when she does not get her way, and is often catered too by people in leadership positions. I have really had to pray this because I do not want my attitude to be affected. I know that my reaction is my responsibility. I have learned that when I have a conflict with someone, the best thing that I can do is pray. First I pray that God will change my attitude toward that person and then I pray that God will bless them. This is not always easy for me to do. I am a take you or leave you person. There is not much in between for me. I either like you or I don’t. This is one area that God has really had to do some major refining in my life. I do strive to see people the way that God sees them. When I give them over to God, then it is no longer me trying to fix them but God doing the work that needs to be done in both of our lives.
