Keep Your Happy
When offenses knock on your door, learn how to encourage yourself and others through the Word of God. I have learned through experiences, both good and bad, that retaliation, resentment, and dwelling on offenses cause even more harm to the person who has been offended.
When we are offended, we must let go of negative thoughts that lead to inappropriate words and actions. Learn to replace negative thoughts with the Word of God and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you in knowing how to move forward. Doing this will help you to maintain the joy of the Lord and a peace that surpasses all understanding.
I strongly encourage you to read The Fruit Is Not for the Tree. It is time to "Keep Your Happy!"
