The internet troubles my family was having last week have been remedied, so YAY!! I can make blog posts again.
I have been experiencing some discouragement lately due in part to the behavior of some others in my branch. Now, before you begin the lecture, <smiles> I do know that I choose my own reactions and that only I can change my mindset and how I respond to the behaviors of others. And I am fervently striving to do so.
With that being said, I have been wondering and praying and trying to determine where to draw the line between a test of faith, and forgiving others for faulty behavior that affects both me and my family. Does it matter? Am I over thinking? Are they both a test of faith?
I'll let you know when I obtain an answer. I've already forgiven any and every one that needs forgiving on my part, but am concerned that the trial continues. The situation continues. Praying daily that I can find within myself the power to change what I need to change to help my family and be who Heavenly Father needs me to be for Him. I'll get there.
