This world will be a better place if only you can acknowledge your monsters and kill them by the power of God that will be made manifest once you are willing to let the blood of Christ flow in your veins. Instead of judging and hating yourself every time it crawls out, acknowledge that part of you. Every man has this monstrous side, which is otherwise known as the flesh.
Let angry people endure the backlash of their own anger;
If you try to make it better; you will only make it worse.
I remember that cold night she told me she regretted ever being my friend, I just sat down quietly replaying her words in my head “what did I do? What had I done to deserve such treatment? was all I could say to myself”.
As I sat down at the corner of the dark room in a blue jean pant and a black shirt, my brunette hair laid on my back and my arms wrapped around my feet, I heard a voice say mockingly to me “oo are you always going to be the weakling? Say something, slap her the next time she says such insulting words to you, show her that you do not care about peace or settling this, let her know who the monster is”.
With a vibe of anger flowing through me, I asked what I had done to deserve her insults and all she said to me was “I just do not want to be friends with you anymore”, before she could explain any further I slapped her real hard that our other colleagues rushed in to find out what was happening; I could not believe that I had slapped a girl I respected and loved very much like a sister.
When people asked me why I had slapped her on the face, I said nothing because I could not explain my actions so I just kept saying “I am sorry, I do not know what came over me, I am deeply sorry” but the sorries changed nothing as I lost my only true friend that night; I continued to deny my actions and myself.
…don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do.
“I’ll do the judging,” says God. “I’ll take care of it.
My friend was disappointed in me because I had displayed my anger before the incident that night and my repeated action was only a proof that anger had the best part of me.
Later on, I discovered Jesus and acknowledged the monster in me, which existed in the form of anger, after which I accepted myself, repented of my ways and received with an open heart God’s forgiveness, salvation and redemption.
I do not know what your own monster, weakness or fleshly desire is but one thing I know for sure is, you can get rid of it or let me simply say you can deal with it through the help of the holy spirit just like how it was possible for the character of the story, it can be possible for you.
I believe you can do it, I know you can do it and I want you to know and believe you can do it.
