Word of Encouragement: Be a Reflection of Love

A Word of Encouragement from Tiffany Batts, BC Member
I realized that it is easy to love the lovable but when people are unlovable is when things get difficult. I know that God is the only One who could change my circumstances, so I began to pray about my frustrations when dealing with people who make my job difficult. God reminded me as He spoke to my spirit; "you have not always been kind, you have spoken about people not in a good way, and you have made people feel excluded.”
So, with that being said, I realized that I know what it feels like to be on the other end of the spectrum. It doesn't make it right how I am treated but I realize when we do not show love it makes it harder for the person to see Christ in us. I am supposed be a reflection of LOVE and if I am not ...what am I reflecting? It has been a hard lesson; however, in this time people need compassion and a little bit of grace. It has taught me to trust God in this season because, even though it seems tough for me now, I still trust He will work " all things for the greater good" even though pruning does hurt. But out of pain comes beauty.
