A Crash Course in Love and Life: Day 9

Daily Meditations for the 40 Days of Lent or Anytime of Year

Conflict cannot survive without your participation.

Dr. Wayne Dyer

Day 9

When you encounter difficult people, remember that they are guides. Too often, we get angry at them when in the long run, God sent them to teach us a lesson. Make this the day of acknowledging and embracing people who challenge you.  Attempt to view people and situations you were angry at from a different perspective: They entered your life to make you stronger.


What is the one personal challenge that hasn’t left your side even though you attempted both to ignore and to correct it? Attend to it now and give it to God. Appreciate whoever touched your life challenged you to acknowledge, face, and confront this issue. Send them blessings instead of ill will.
