i was dealing with someone some time ago who was playing mind games with me, saying one thing/doing another, etc. and (long stoyr short) I ended up having a terrible day because of this person’s evil. I prayed about it, gave it to Jesus (and St. Jude) but the person literally messed up my whole day because the person did something that prevented me from doing things i felt God wanted me to do.
Anyway, at some point in a conversation with the person, i said a word i don’t usually say (not the F word) because i was so angry & tired of the games, which i could not figure out why the person was playing.
Anyway, i felt this person (I’ll call the person M) was, in a sense, causing me to swear because M knew anyone would be angry if treated the way M was treating me.
I blurted 2 M that s/he was causing me to sin (swear). I kinda couldn’t believe i said that because, in my head i know that, (theoretically) no one can cause another to sin. But the Bible does say something about causing "these (followers of Christ’s?) to sin and it would be better if a millstone was hung around the person’s neck & the person be thrown into the river or something like that (i don’t have my Bible handy).
Anyway, it was a learning experience for me because, for the first time in a long, long time, i actually got the feeling that i could not control my anger (use of that word). I guess i can say what the word was: BS (not abbreviated).
I am wondering if you have been through this kidn of thing and if you could give me some insights into how to deal with it (other than prayer, which i have done and am still doing)?
