Struggling a bit today. I am frustrated with some loved ones in my life. They have said hurtful things about my family and been the source of much tension in our home. I love them, but
I'm angry too. Now they want to come visit. I don't feel ready or prepared.
As a Christian in circumstances like these I'm often left struggling as to how I should act. I know I need to forgive and show grace. But what if they aren't seeking either of these from me? What then? Do I pretend nothing is wrong and turn the other cheek?
Lord, please lead, guide and direct me as I face the earthly challenges of conflict with loved ones. My prayer is for resolution and healthy relationships. Thanks for walking beside me and showing me your ways.
