It can be crushingly painful to endure personal injustice, especially from people who make Christian claims.
I passed through one of these seasons some years ago and found myself—mostly during long walks—bouncing between two Scripture-based prayers.
I would pray that those who plotted evil would have it turned back on them.
But then I would remember that I wasn’t faultless and that God had been overwhelmingly merciful to me.
I would then pray that God would show mercy and somehow work to set things right in our chaotic community caught in destructive dynamics.
Harnessing and surviving the emotional upheaval that follows unjust treatment is no easy task. There’s much more to say about all of that, but I’ll just point to Michael Pahl’s excellent post today on this very topic.
