My coworker, his name is Michael, truly hates me and is very rude toward me. I know it is LIGHT VS DARKNESS and I understand what is working behind him. But it is getting me discouraged. I am there to work, not like or not like others but to work. But Michael has told all other coworkers that he cannot stand me and yet I have not done anything toward him at all. I have chosen to love Michael and to already forgive him... but it is becoming too much for me at times. This spring I purchased him an adorable baseball outfit for his baby boy as a gift. He threw it on my desk (and I mean he threw it) and spotted off 'I do not want anything from you'.
I have a super tender and gentle heart and went into the bathroom and cried.
Another time he told me 'why do you work here, you are too old to work here, why don't you leave'... After his attitude toward me yesterday, it is greatly discouraging me inside as a human being. Please pray for me that God will protect me from his hatefulness and rudeness toward me. Also pray for him too, as my heart hurts for him for a young man in his early 30's to be so full of hate and anger when someone has not done anything or said anything against him. Pray that the LIGHT will push inside his own heart to break off the bonds of anger and hate inside his heart and for him to experience the great LOVE of knowing JESUS in his life. That the LOVE AND GREAT MERCY of our Lord pushes through his darkness.
