Living the Life…

5 Comments

george carlindo you know people who have to have everything everyone else has? the ones who just can’t seem to be satisfied with enough, they always need more? i always wondered what is behind that kind of person to make them so driven to have to have it all…

one day i got a glimpse into their world, which put a different spin on everything, and it made me understand and see from a totally different perspective!  i don’t want to go into all my obsessions, but let me just say this, God has a way of humbling you without you realizing this, what you criticize  in others is (sometimes) what is going on inside of you! 

this may sound silly, let me explain a bit, but i have a bit (no, a lot, lol) of OCD in me, and sometimes it’s hard to stop myself from doing certain things…

you see, i love anything “artsy”, ANYTHING!! and i have a tendency of not being able to draw the line of how many things that (to me) look beautiful, color-wise, that i need to have in my collection…especially nail polish or paint!!!

i am obsessed with color!! i know it sounds simple to some, and totally crazy to others (like my family), but it’s true and one day (in His humorous way) showed me that i’m no different from the one who wants what everyone else has!!! OUCHIE!!!!!

that has opened up a whole new world to me…it made me realize that sometimes we don’t see ourselves as we see others! how quick i was to find those little “issues” i thought others’ had, not realizing, i, myself, have major issues going on…it brought me to remembrance of “don’t try to take the stick out of your brother’s eye, when you have a log in yours”!!!!

i guess summing it all up brings me to this point…in today’s world people are going berserk!! i think we all need to pray for other people more than we do (i speak mostly for myself, but am looking for others to jump on board)…i hope and pray we can all find a common denominator of caring for the lives of others…if we don’t pray for each other, what do we have?

please join in and lift each other up…we never know what anyone is going through or what makes them choose to do the foolish things they do…this is heavy on my heart and i’m hoping more people will consider other lives to be as important as their own or those they love…

to me, this is truly, living the life…

peace out…

I love all forms of encouragement, especially if it involves humor...the greatest thing to me is watching people be uplifted ...also extending grace to those who feel down or condemned. I found it is a powerful tool... Everyone's life is valuable and I would love to bring a little bit of light and joy into their lives..selah~~~

  1. Understanding is the key, and we gain that by listening, really listening, to what is said and unsaid.

  2. “The ones who just can’t seem to be satisfied with enough, they always need more?”
    Reading this post I had an unexpected thought, thank you.
    That obsession, wanting more, being out of control – almost always is seen as a negative. So is my obsession, wanting more, giving away control to my Lord and Father also wrong? If it is then I am guilty as charged. Yet this obsession of choice, this wanting more each day, this being out of control is a way of life I see more and more as the way to live.
    And I wonder – my unexpected thought – if we come with this hard wiring of obsession. That it is “how we are” in the same way as our hearts beat and our lungs inflate and deflate.
    That the gift of obsession is just that: a gift.
    And – like so much – it is the choices we make in using that obsession that is the kicker. Maybe if we embraces obsession rather than fought it – then we might encourage an obsession with something deeper and long-lasting. Maybe.

    • i totally get what you’re saying…and there’s never a wrong motive behind an obsession with the Lord! i’m obsessed with Him and the hunger is sometimes so painful because i can’t get enough of Him that it feels like someone is drilling a hole in the pit of my stomach!
      He is the reason we have the hunger, He put it there (as you said)…we distort it with the mental images that are fiery darts shot our way, and then we choose…i am one who found my choices were distorted…but now that they’ve been uncovered, are no longer! i choose to keep my focus on Him…and yes, again you’re right, this obsession is forever, deeper and the best to satisfy my hunger…
      thanks for the chat…i love when we get moments to brush over our thoughts!
      blessings to you, my friend!
