A few months ago I had several run ins with another coworker at my work. It just seemed that I could not do anything right in her eyes and even if I tried to talk to her, I was snubbed. Well at the first of this month I received a text from our boss letting me know who my person was for a our secret santa exchange. To my surprise I had gotten the name of the coworker that I had been having some struggles with.
Ever since I was a little girl, I remember a bible verse that says something about heaping coals of fire on your enemy’s head. Which is doing acts of kindness to the person who is mean or unfriendly to you. This is not an easy thing to do for anyone, even myself. There has been times I have had to make a choice of continuing to try to be friends and showing kindness to the person that was hurting me or walking away from the situation. Even though I have had to walk away from some situation’s and leave them in God’s hands, this was not one of those times I could walk away.
I have bit my tongue several times around this coworker, but something was revealed to me about her. After taking a step back and looking at who she was, where she came from and what she was dealing with in her life. I realized there may be more to the story then what we are seeing in front of us. So when I got her name as my secret santa person, I chose to heap coals of fire on her head and bless her with a gift, something I would love to get as a gift myself.
Well I want to wish everyone here a Blessed New Year!!!!!!
