Be kind to unkind people

February 16, 2016 28 Comments

I've been trying to catch up on emails today and I swear some folks wake up and gargle with vinegar. lol.

 

I think they try to get a "reaction" out of me....and they do...one of LOVE! 

 

I extend kindness and love and 99% of the time it works and we end up as friends.   Granted, I think I ran into the other 1% today.  ;)

 

Anyhoo...one person wrote:

 

"You think you can save the world?!  You think the Bible is really up to date?  We live in a different world.  You always quote that stupid Philippians 4:13.  Move a mountain then.  You're a dumb blond and it shows."

 

Wow, no warm fuzzies there! LOL :)   I did write them a nice and loving note and received a nasty note in reply.  Hey, I tried.

 

Anyhoo..right after that lovely note, I received an email and all it said was:

 

"Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have. Your daily emails have saved me from the pit of despair and self pity.  Please, don't quit. You have no idea how much you are needed."

 <tears> 

 

So..why do I mention all of this? 

Maybe some of you would have answered the disgruntled person with anger. 

Yet, that doesn't work and although sometimes being nice doesn't work...at least you are doing what Jesus would do! 

 

Being angry and nasty to someone only makes you the same. 

You sow what you reap.....so I'm very careful about what kind of seed I toss out there!

 

Listen to my recorded version, I made for you :)

 

Love and Blessings, Wendy C.

Dont ever get discouraged Wendy!

You have wonderful and true messages.

With patience, perseverence, prayer and humility we can change the world with and through God’s love, forgiveness, grace and wisdom.

God bless you and your family and your ministry always.

This is based in humility I think. I also find that being the butt of their anger and NOT responding will often calm the anger directed your way.
This is also critical for family and family relationships. The evil one will do everything possible to break family relationships, and anger and hurt pride are his weapons.

Thank you so much for your message. I’m having such a difficult time dealing with my son, a heroin addict. I’ve dealt with his drug addiction for 28 yrs and am so tired and I find myself being so angry and responding to him that way. I know it doesn’t help but he won’t let me alone. It’s hour after hour of texting how terrible of a mother I’ve been yet I’ve put myself into such deep debt because of giving to him and now that I’ve stopped he’s unbelievable. Thank you Wendy I will try to be more kind to him.

OMG, Wendy. I’m so sorry you got subjected to such vitriolic comment like that. But the blessing goes to you and you know it :-)
Though it may hurt, i’m sure you’ve learned to expect it. But we must always know our battles are not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers.
God bless you always :-)

Dear Wendy

You are a beautiful woman inside and out. I have been corresponding with u for several years now. I cannot really express how much u have done for me spiritually and am ever so grateful for all the praying on my behalf.Also all the spiritual goods I received from u have been put to much use. However yesterday my parish priest forbade me from using the holy oils to anoint and pray for others. He said it was ok for my own personal use but not to use it on others Naturally I was saddened by this prospect as I saw with my own eyes people getting healed as I anointed them.know your ,. Obviously I have no intention of disobeying my parish priest , however I would be very interested to know your opinion on the issue. Many thanks Wendy and may God Almighty shower you and yours with abundant blessings. Please pray for my husband David.Issues too numerous to pen.

Thank you so much for your words. I definitely needed to hear this. There are so many people who are just so difficult and hard to be nice to. Although I know I in my heart that I never want to repay people with there horrible nasty ways. It truly is a challenge. For the most part I walk away and lift them up to Jesus. I ask for strength and I do try hard to let it go. Right now after losing my Dad in January. I’m finding it so very hard to be patient but it’s something I’ve been praying about and listening to this audio made me realize that never do I want to be something that God would not be happy with. I ask everyday to love and forgive as He does and I try each day to be worthy of Him. So I keep this in mind each day and while I’ll never be perfect , my goal is to keep trying my best everyday with His help. I can’t but He can make me better. Through Him all things are possible.
God bless you for all that you do.
My love and prayers to you and all your family.
Sandy

Hi Wendy, I am dealing with someone at work who I call a vexation to the spirit.
Always loud, angry, sees the faults of others but never her own. I am beginning to get angry
at this person inspite of my prayers. I was calling on God to help me and then I read your article.
This is the clarity I need to persevere with love. Thank you!!

This is something I struggle with often. It’s even harder when the person spewing anger is one of your own children. Trying to go to confessions more often (all of us). God Bless you for your ministry!

Wow Wendy, absolute perfect timing with your message. I am dealing with an evil person that I will face in a trail in just a few days. She is representing herself and has stated that her mission in life is to make my life a living hell. Your message has given me the strength and understanding that I must not fall into her evil acts. I will not go down to her level instead I will remain calm, collective and loving, because that is who I truly am. I trust in the Lord that He will protect and guide me during this difficult time.

Hi Wendy I loved your comment about the 1% but you know it you didn’t know already that gargling with vinegar is very good if you have a sore throat and apple cider vinegar that is and it’s good for a lot of other things but you probably know that thanks for all the good information And God bless you and your family always

Hi Wendy,

I can’t believe you had this topic today! Someone was really angry with me this morning and told me to “Mind my own business….!!!” I have never had that happen in a long time. I felt bad all day. And then fearful…. but God had me open my email and find your sweet picture and message. I have to say “my first thought is how can you be so young and beautiful and have all those kids and look like honeymooners” Your husband adores you. Wow what a woman and what a family. Your email was sent from God. You are inspired. God Bless you all Beth

Thank you for this audio. I agree,the more you are out there trying to help people, the more negative comes your way! But why should we think we should have it any better than Jesus did! So I do not turn back or give up, the wonderful comments that come, like you then shared make it all worthwhile!

One cannot satisfy everyone. There will always be someone who has a different view. I have found that usually when people treat others badly, it is because they themselves are not happy. Usually there is something going on that makes them bitter. Sometimes all you can really do for them is pity them and pray for them.

God is really the only one that we should worry about offending. If your doing things His way, you can almost guarentee that the enemy will try to trip you up in any way possible.

As one priest has told me often “Be of Good Cheer”

John 15:18-19: "If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

John 16:33: I have said this to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
