This is hard to take.

hard to even read!

Ugh.  

sounds preachy and unfeeling to me.

Maybe that is something 

I’m bringing in to the text, 

not getting out of it. 
 Part of my filter.
God.  Jesus.  Holy Spirit.

You of all people understand how to deal with mean people. 

 You of all people understand feeling betrayed and violated.  

You of all people understand how to overcome evil with good

 rather than letting it 

swallow up

 and poison.

How do we do this?

Let Your Word come and bring beauty instead of ashes, 

The oil of Joy instead of crushing sadness,

A garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.

I need You Lord God.

We need You.

Enliven and make beautiful our souls. 🌻
