Abandon your feelings

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Praise to the God of All Comfort
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

1 Thessalonians 5:15

Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.

        The Lord says to me, "Abandon your feelings for the sake of others and follow me."  It is not easy to always do what the Lord lays on your heart especially when you are feeling overwhelmed.  I can’t beat these feelings on my own no one can.  I can say “Shake it off but the question is “Does it shake off so easily?”  The answer is no.  I can go through moments or days depending on what the Lord wants.  In times like this I hit my knees.  There is no other way to fight this kind of battle. 

        I get annoyed with feeling compassion for something someone did against me; but if you love this person and care about their wellbeing then compassion is not that difficult have.  When strangers wrong me I must put myself in their shoes and if compassion is due it will be revealed.

God does not tell you to mistreat someone you do that on your own.
