My business partner says all the time, to remember, that it’s “all about the people”, and it brings everything back into perspective and gets us going in the right direction. Now, even in everyday things and a challenge comes up and I find myself getting frustrated, I’ll hear her say that.
And God thinks the same way … “For God so loved the world (people) that He gave” JOHN 3:16
I’m saying, “Father God, I’m asking for mercy and grace to help me keep the right perspective with others. If I find myself frustrated or sharp with others … people close to me or strangers that I have to deal with, help me to step back, get quiet and get Your perspective. If I’m totally into what I’m doing and someone interrupts and I get irritated, I’m giving You permission to interrupt me and set me straight before I try to set them straight. If someone, especially those I’m close to, doesn’t seem to get what I’m saying, help me to see what the real issue is instead of just charging on, or giving up. I love You, Lord, with all my heart, my soul, my mind and strength, and I love others as You have loved me. I take this. I have it. I thank You, and I forgive. All in Jesus name.”
