So, I see you have been defending yourself.
I already know the story.
Yep, the entire story.
Oh, someone is telling their side of the story to others.
I knew that already too.
Oh, you didn’t want people to talk about you.
Well, they did that before the story happened, and they will continue after the story is over.
Let me suggest that you start by telling that story to me. Out loud.
If you still feel the need to tell others, write it down on paper instead.
If you still feel the need to tell others, pray about it.
Now, I’d like you to do this over several days.
With the time you were going to spend defending your story to others, pray for the one who hurt you. And pray for all of those who will hear the story.
For yourself, pray for clarity regarding the situation.
No need to pray for a winner, nobody won this round.
Don’t look so confused. Let me explain.
You see, the devil tried to win, but you wouldn’t let him in the ring.
I’m so proud of you.
