Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. ~Romans 12:21~

Working in public service can be both, a blessing and a curse. Some days you leave the job feeling as if you've been rewarded, and on other days you feel as if you want to hide. You learn quickly that no matter what you do, you can't please everyone.

A lttle over a month ago, President Barack Obama was re-elected to office. In the South where i live, the majority is republican, and as you've guessed it, everyone was a little upset. Every morning i get up, get dressed and report to traffic duty by 6:50am. As a Community Resource Officer, many depend on me for the safety of pedestrians, children and drivers during school hours. After the re-election of the president, I got looks that could kill. Drivers that normally spoke, did not speak; I suffered attitudes that were very racists, and unbecoming adults. I have never felt so much hate. It was as if i personally declared Barack Obama the president.

Many quickly forgot who i was. Every morning for the last five years, I get up, get dressed, and protect the lives of children, pedestrians and drivers in the same neighborhood. I make sure that everyone is safe. Despite the attitudes of others, I held on to the one thing that matters the most, the fact that I LOVE GOD. Loving God meant that I had to be respectful, courteous and polite to others regardless of what was going on at this time. I had to continue to show love. One of my favorite scriptures to read when i encounter someone that insist on being evil, is Romans 12:20, and it reads,"If your enemy gets hungry, feed him; if he be thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing, you will heap coals of fire on his head." The bible gives us clear instructions on how to deal with the enemy. Leave vengeance to the lord. He can take care of the enemy better than we can. Nothing good comes to those who continue to mistreat others. Many call this karma, but this is the work of Jesus Christ. All we have to do is follow the word.

The idea of the scripture above is to continue to bless the enemy and not curse him. The other reason we must continue to show love is, through acts of kindness, it is also possible to gain a friend. This demonstrates the phenomenal power of God's love that believers are connected through Christ. (NKJV)

May God add a blessing to all whom read his word.
