Today I am feeling immensely grateful for everyone who responded to my recent request for prayers. I was in a difficult situation with a troublesome neighbour, and I feared he was going to act aggressively and possibly violently towards me (here’s the backstory).
By the mercy of God, the situation is greatly improved. I bumped into my neighbour on the street today for the first time in about three weeks, and although there was initially some tension, I apologised for any hard feelings and miraculously we had a friendly chat.
I can honestly say I feel much more at peace with the situation now, and I have learned a lesson, which is the lesson of this recent post about how we should respond when we feel someone is being unreasonable or unkind.
The air has been cleared, God heard your prayers, and now I feel much more able to relax in the run-up to Christmas. He may keep playing loud music for a few hours a day, but all things considered it’s no big deal, and I have so much to be thankful for.
God bless you, dear friends, and thank you Lord for this relief!
