So sorry you've been mistreated. I only wish Christians could always be the love that each other can depend upon, because we really need one another in this life, especially right now.

Hang in there and know that not everyone acts like this, Mistia. There are so many good Christians, who are mature in Christ, who know how to appropriately treat their brother or sister in Christ Jesus. God bless you, hon.

Well God loves you so much he died for you. You are never so far from him that he's not in control,and his glory is being carried out in your life as we speak. Have you concidered this woman is for you to minster to or you may be playing a roll in her life. You can't go wrong living as a example for others to see Christ in you. Ask God for discernment for his will listen to her carefully before you react to the words spoken. Speak words of faith and Scripture when she's there be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove. You know Gods will for your life by keeping Gods word there. Never acknowlage that your under attack. Rebuke Satan in Jesus name he cannot dwell if you give him no place. God bless and keep you.

There is no excuse for anyone to mistreat you. The fact that they call her Fiery just is a subtle way of calling her a mean (you know what). I have suffered for years with depression and know how it feels. I suggest you get a good therapist to help.

You are a child of God and as such deserve to be treated with respect. You are worth the price that was paid at the cross don't ever think differently.

Mistia,

Firstly, get yourself a list of WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST , I'm sure you can find a list someone has made online and print it up, and post it where you can see it daily (I keep mine in my bathroom cabinet). Learn it and memorize it so that it gets into your spirit. When the enemy, who comes to steal, kill and destroy, comes to bother you and make you afraid and worthless you can remind yourself, and him, of WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST. This will combat the feelings of fear and worthlessness. Jesus died for YOU Mistia! He must have thought you were, and are, very important to do that for you.
: )

Christians are not perfect and ALL of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. If you can find a perfect Christian for me who never sins or makes errors please let us all know. lol!

Just because someone calls themselves a Christian doesn't mean that they are since as scripture says "you will know them by their fruit". Also many older people, I'm in my early 30's btw, are just set in their ways and don't want to change. A lot of older people use the old person card so they don't have to. This is wrong. We are to treat others, according to scripture, as better than us (but remember this is servant thinking like Christ and not doormat thinking which is abusive) and love and serve others like Christ did us. If this woman is being unkind to you then it's not Christ like behavior obviously.

I would suggest praying for her, that God's perfect will would be done in her life. Also ask God to help you to forgive her, if you need to, and ask Him for WISDOM on how to handle any future interactions with her. Also, remember what you have learned and don't tell this woman any more personal information about yourself as she's shown you she's not trustworthy.

Also if this woman has what is known as a "firey temper" I have to ask you does she take pride in this? She may if she's expecting people to just put up with her temper. We are called to love and serve. If she's running around expressing this "firey temper" at people with no plans to change her behavior then that is sin. We're called according to the word of God to have a renewed mind and one has to work with God in this with daily repentance, asking for forgiveness and ACTIVELY relying on the Lord to help us to change our actions. Not to mention following the Golden Rule thats also in the Bible that says "do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

So back to your other question about the enemy/satan using people to bother you. Yes, this can happen and it happens all the time. He uses Christians and NON CHRISTIANS to do this. He hates you and he knows what will bother you. Trust me I'm well versed in this problem of the enemy using others to hurt me as it's happened to me my whole life.

If you want to be free from being a victim of the enemy bothering you, using people to hurt you , etc. then you need to start fighting in the spirit. Read your Bible and ask God to give you wisdom on how to fight. Also ask Him to tell you what is REALLY happening when these things happen. Ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit every day and put on the armor of God. I'd suggest finding a book on the armor of God so you'll know how to do this.

Also you need to get tired. Tired of being bullied by the enemy and you need to get angry. You said you're 40-something? Do you want to be 80-something someday still crying over these things that the enemy uses to push your buttons? That is why I suggest getting mad and learning how to fight back according to God's word. Often the people the enemy tries to hurt the most are the people that God's given wonderful gifts to that will help destroy the enemy's kingdom. If he can keep you crying and afraid/upset then you're not going to be of much use in God's kingdom as you're too occupied by his distractions. Keep in mind that I'm not saying you should be going around getting mad at people. We're called to love people. I'm saying you need to get mad at the enemy and learn to fight spiritually. The Bible says that "we do not fight against flesh and blood but the power and principalities of the air.". There's a spiritual battle going on and you,me, all of us need to learn how to fight.

Will pray for you. : )
