So here I am again, going through the motions of dealing with certain people in my life that tend to drive me nuts and in my weakest moment I let it all get to me. So much so, that I tend to talk to my husband a lot about it. That is usually a sign for me to deal with it, if I tend to talk about it a little more than I should.
I read this book years ago that helped me deal with people that rubbed me the wrong way and it was such a great resource. So much that I gave it to a friend to read and.....haven't seen it since lol. I'm sure it's helping someone as much as it has for me.
So this blog is to share with you another post I just read which will help me sleep tonight :) I love that it talks about my very love language - serving and how I can use that to deal with those sandpaper people in my life right now :). God is sooo good :)
Have a read. ....Good night Sandpaper people :P..kidding....goodnight xx
Serving Sandpaper People
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves (Romans 12:10, NIV).
We live in a problem-filled world. However, you will be thrilled to know I have discovered the biggest problem of all – people. In my opinion, if there were fewer people, there would be fewer problems. Every day, we face the daunting challenge of getting along with people. Some make it easy, and some don’t. Some are kind and encouraging, and replenishing, while others drive us to the brink of insanity and beyond.
Father, when I let pride take up residence in my heart, I can be so blind to the needs of others, especially those who are more difficult to love. I am so thankful that You did not feel that way toward me, one of the most difficult people of all to love. I praise You for the grace and love You have given me. Help me to be an instrument of that love and grace in the lives of those around me.
In Jesus’ name,
