Being Misunderstood ~ Thoughts (See Bible Verse Scriptures below)
Feeling Misunderstood can be extremely painful and frustrating. Perhaps you had good intentions at heart and meant no harm, but somehow your words and actions have been misunderstood, misaligned, or even completely distorted. Your motives have been misjudged, and your actions misinterpreted.
Maybe you have even tried to explain and sort out the misunderstanding, but your words have fallen on deaf ears – their minds are already made up. Maybe you feel like you don’t have any more energy to explain the situation or to completely set matters straight. Or maybe you never even got the opportunity to clarify the misunderstanding in the first place.
When you are misunderstood – As painful as it may be, please remember that you are in good company:
~ Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was misunderstood by some as being evil, sinful, proud and arrogant, even as he lived a pure life of sacrifice and love. (Examples can be found in Matthew 12:24, NLT, Luke 5:20-25 NLT, etc.)

There are so many other examples of people who were misunderstood, even though they had pure motives; and had the very best intentions at heart. Dear Friends, Please remember that no matter what you do, no matter how kind and thoughtful you are, no matter how honorable your motives are, there will probably always be someone out there who misunderstands you. And that’s ok!
When possible, please do everything in your power, by God’s grace and with God’s help, to clarify, to explain, and to always promote peace (Romans 12:18). But if your efforts to clarify an apparent misunderstanding don’t work out as you had hoped, please don’t stress it – leave the rest in God’s hands. Please, don’t let other people’s actions affect you negatively! Don’t let other people’s negative opinions, misunderstandings or actions derail you, keep you down, or delay you from fulfilling your destiny as a child of God.
When you feel misunderstood by people very dear to you, you may feel like your heart is being shattered into a million pieces. Dear Friends, remember that God is with us no matter what we are going through! God longs to heal our broken hearts and comfort and strengthen us. Don’t worry – God will vindicate you in due time! Find your encouragement and comfort and hope in God today. Friends, don’t be discouraged, Be encouraged! Keep trusting God, who knows all and sees every heart.
Psalm 147:3, NIV He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.
Isaiah 26:3, NLT You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! See Also: Bible Verses about Fixing your eyes on God; Be strong in the Lord
Finally, please remember to pause when dealing with other people, resist jumping to conclusions, consequently misunderstanding, misinterpreting, or misjudging others too. Others have misunderstood you in the past, and you know how painful that can be. In the same way, let us remember to give others the benefit of doubt, and not be so quick to assume the worst about their words or actions.
Matthew 7:12, NLT Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.
