Patience and a quiet attitude with that person and praying will help.
Hi Nancy interesting question it can be very hard to distanquish .
The only thing I can think of is a situation in my own life when I was hurt very badly by a family member without getting into details I would say originally I was being very stubborn. In that there was bitterness anger even hatred. It actually was very painful yet I didn't see it and would not admit it even if I did. At a point I felt a nudging requiring me to do something that until then I felt was imposable. The situation at the time was a time of grief and I hug the family member. In doing so I sensed a forgiveness and I felt a ton of pressure lifted off my shoulders. Did our relationship reunite- no it did not. That was the conviction. I felt no pain no anger no bitternes yet I knew to rekindle the relationship would only rekindle the actions and problems which caused the problem in the first place.
It wasn't until later in pray with the Lord that I saw the difference. At that point my pray was that I would not ever find myself in such a state of stubborness.
I found stubborness leaves no room for growth thus ultimately brings pain.
Conviction allows for constant growth and therefore brings a peace and a joy.
yes agree Like Luke I assume to much. My thoughts of growth requires the Fathers wisdom thus conviction allowing constant growth.
the pain of stubborness of course the pain pharoah suffered as a result of his stubbornness
