a struggle :: a short blog

today I am struggling. 
today I need a change of heart. 
well, I do everyday but today especially as I struggle with one specific issue. 

the issue : 

- dealing with people who are hurtful and purposefully evil. 

it is hard to not think badly of others when their behavior is so terrible. 
or to become bitter towards them and take it out on others. 
or to want to punch them in the nose.

my prayer today is this : 

O, God, help me to think before I speak. 

Put words of kindness in my mouth {and heart}
that will build others up
 instead of destroying them. 

Show me how to love them as You love them.
Show me where I do wrong so that I may correct that behavior and grow closer to You. 

I desire to be virtuous.
