Hatred

Gonna be honest. I don't pretend to be perfect, but I thought I had already forgiven all my enemies and let go of hatred.

But this past week I've come across some new feelings. I don't understand them. I've felt hatred. 

That felt really good to just get off my chest. 

I don't want to feel hatred though. I don't want my life or heart I be consumed by feeling something bad to someone else. 

So my prayer this morning is, 
"Lord, please take away the hatred and the pride in my heart. Remind me that everyone is going through their own struggles and that hurting people hurt people. People give the same love they receive. Thank you for the love of your son. In Jesus name, Amen"

It's really funny that you should mention this, because this past week I've also felt the same exact thing. It wasn't really hatred, it was more like contempt and pride and frustration. Now, looking back, I feel a little silly that something that insignificant rubbed me the wrong way and made me so defensive. I guess pride and hatred are just natural inclinations that people have that only God can really take away.
