We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.
(Romans 8:28, NIV)
I’ve come through a long ordeal.
The result: I feel I’ve been wronged.
Anger wants to boil up inside me.
But, Lord, I look to You.
I accept this decision as from Your hand,
as Your perfect and merciful will for me.
I thank You for the wisdom and love that
even now is using this pain for my good.
And that person, Lord—
I accept them as Your servant.
If they were mistaken or insensitive,
I forgive them.
Most of all, help me think and act as Your servant,
rejoicing in You.
Anger and self-protection are burdens too heavy to bear.
I cannot serve You and continue to carry them.
I give them to You.
Thank You, Lord! You are always good!
