Romans 12: 15-21
15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:
   “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
   if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Do you have something or someone in your life that you struggle with? I do. We all do.
So often we want to retaliate when someone hurts us. But it isn't up to us. God can handle it. And He will.
When we committ to being a christian and walking like Jesus, he expects to show his love by pouring out our love to others and sharing our joy so that people want the happiness we find in Jesus. If we are busy being angry or hurt by someone else, how can we do that? There will always be days when we are hurting or upset, when our cup seems empty and unsure of how to fill it back up. But God always delivers. There is nothing you are going thru that He doesn't know about. Or that He can't help you thru it. It's making you stronger and able to handle other things in your life. You character is being tested. It's not a pass/fail, but a trial. So often we think we can handle things on our own. We forget to lean on our eternal insurance. God's love.
