Times In Our Lives - Sheila Gosney

There will be times in all of our lives

where we're treated very harshly and unfair.

And no matter how hard we look for the justice

we find that it just isn't there.

When we're offended and in pain, our normal response

is to retaliate and somehow repay.

For we want that person to see how it feels

to have the heartache we're feeling that day.

But as natural as it seems to want to get even

it's the opposite of what God says is true.

For He is desiring that His servants be different

and be Christ-like in all that we do.

As incredible as it sounds, He wants us to repay them

with a blessing instead of more pain.

And He will give us the power we need to be kind

and the strength we need to refrain.

We have to trust Him and fully believe Him

Knowing His ways truly are best.

We have to be encouraged knowing He saw the injustice

and let Him give us comfort and rest.

The person who offends us is not declared innocent

by the kindness we place on their head.

But God takes all the heartache retaliation would bring us

and gives us a blessing instead.
