Talk to me, Abba.
Don't be distracted by the rude things people say and do. I have put you on mission. When you get distracted by personality, ugly attitudes, and hurtful words, you are refusing to do the thing I sent you for. Look wildly and boldly into the face of a challenge and refuse to get carried away in the temporal moment. Don't let yourself be bullied and oppressed by the cross ways of those around you. Speak grace back. Speak graceful truth back. To love in the face of ugliness is to do exactly what it is called to do.
"Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone." -Colossians 4:6
