In my own finite mind
I will never understand how to deal with you
But I acknowledge that my ways are not God's ways
And my thoughts are not God's thoughts
And when I choose to accept you for what you are
And to respect you for what you are
and to love you for what you are
I knew that it is God who works in me
Both to do and to will according to His purpose
God is kind to the unthankful and evil
Who am I to hate when He set an example to love?
Therefore, I choose to unconditionally love you
and I thank God for bringing you in my life
For in you the traits of the new creation in Christ will manifest in me
For as long as I have the fruit of the Spirit
Of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness, and self control
I am immune to the pain your action and reaction might send me.
