How do you respond when others attack, slander, or gossip about you? Does that cause your anxiety to rise? Do you worry how that hostile, hateful person might impact others in your social circle? In such situations, it’s normal to feel anxious and unsettled. But we don’t have to allow anyone else’s behavior to steal our joy, peace, precious moments, and effectiveness. We can, by God’s grace, rise up, resting in Him and seeking His perfect wisdom for whatever anyone else throws at us.
