Stopping your ears

I read a quote today by Charles Spurgeon. "You cannot stop people's tongues, and therefore the best thing is to stop your own ears and never mind what is spoken." 

What do you do when someone is spreading absolute lies about you? This is something I have always struggled with.  But honestly this time I am just at such peace in this situation.  I am so thankful that God's peace has been so strong in the middle of all of the storm..

This quote means alot to me right now because the other day when I heard the latest slanderous comment she had made I told me husband, "Ok, that's enough.  I don't want to hear any more. "  And I truly don't!  I don't want to hear any more of what she is up to, who she is with and what she is saying. I have chosen to close my ears to it.

Truthfully, this makes it soooo much easier to pray blessings for her; which I am determined to do.  I am determined to see her as God sees her and am earnestly praying for her spiritual restoration.  I am also honestly excited about what I believe God is going to do in her life through this situation.
