Of late my thoughts of revenge have been more personal. Its a not a getting back at people for wrongs done but wanting people to feel sorry for what they have done. Like at work I want this lady to see me with the children and how much they love me and then for her to feel sorry for the way she treated me. Others on a broader scale but mostly like that.
My friend told me to "rise above". To recognize that my thoughts in that direction are sin and I need to let that go. It so hard but I am trying. The Lord has blessed me with Michael, with an amazing family, and with so much more. How could I not be thankful enough and loved enough to glory in that instead of glorying in the thoughts of revenge?
I'm sorry to my Lord for this sin in my life, and sorry to whomever I have thought or desired ill upon. My only goal is to emulate my Savior and that was a very poor imitation. I will try harder to strive for righteousness over revenge!
