Turning the Other Cheek

Some people say that turning the other cheek is a hard thing to do and I will agree with that, but only through God are you able to do it. He gives you the strength to turn the other cheek to someone and most of the time it is someone who doesn’t know God that will tempt you. Satan is very cunning and sometimes will even use those closest to you to tempt you into a confrontation. I am not sure if it was God who instilled in me to turn the other cheek but I do know that it has been an easy thing for me to do throughout the years. Don’t get me wrong I have held grudges against people but eventually, I have asked for forgiveness from them and from God. It used to feel like I was being bullied but in all aspect I pretty much was, but I could never find it inside myself to confront the person back. I know that sometimes it can be hard and I do understand that but I always keep telling myself that if someone does me wrong they always get something done back to them later on but never by my hand. God seeks revenge in His own time so it might be years down the road but they will pay the consequences for what they have done. So, just keep in mind that when someone hits you, wrongs you, or sins against you, just turn the other cheek and move on. They will get theirs in the long run.
