Day 13: Wondrous Love

Boy, the Lord really has my number with today’s devotional. On the way home from last night’s evening service, I saw someone who was not particularly pleasant to me a couple days before when I led a workshop at the Darlene Bishop Home for Life. We talked about how to smooth out the bumpy road we have to travel when trying to process and integrate change into out lives. One of the women at the workshop was noticeably uncooperative. She didn’t participate in any of the exercises and she kept her back to me almost the entire time I spoke. She really got on my nerves. I hadn’t thought much about her until last night when I saw her again after service and received basically the same reception from her as when I conducted the workshop-chilly. On the way home I thought to myself, she clearly has some kind of issue. Maybe she’s prejudiced. Maybe she didn’t like what I had to say. But now I wonder if maybe she just needs to be loved.
