RUN!!

doesn’t it seem like people are against you a lot? in today’s world everyone fights against each other always seeing the bad in each other…it’s getting kind of sickening if you ask me.
i’m not a pessimist, by any means, yet this troubles me. i hate seeing everyone backbiting, going for each other’s throats over silly things.

where’s the love these days?
i’ve come to terms with it and finally concluded, people are truly lovers of themselves and don’t care who they hurt or who they step on to get things they want..they’ve forgotten how to love others and deny themselves…what a crazy world we live in huh? it’s all a sick game don’tcha think?
well, the more i gave it thought, the more frustrated i became and started my own little version of how the game should be played…i’ve asked myself this, if someone has it in for me b/c they don’t like the color of my hair, skin or eyes, then should i extend grace to that person or make them feel the pain they’re causing me? should i spew my mouth off at them or turn in silence and walk away avoiding strife at any cost? the more i thought about it, the more scenarios my little mind came up with! i tried my best to be christian in my thinking until i heard about a young boy i knew who was bullied and beat up in school and i became a bit different for that moment in time! that’s when i realized sometimes one must stand up to some people…and that’s when i figured out my human side made a decision…and it was this…”take your best shot, and it better be good, because if i get up you’re gonna wish i didn’t!!!!!
is that a good example? probably not, but if you think about it, the flesh can make one lose control, espeicially if you hurt any of my loved ones!!!

obviously it’s time i change my focus and let my flesh sit down for a spell…ya think?

as i did that and surrendered my thoughts i began to look from a different perspectiveHis perspective instead of mine (ouchie)…i realized i was thinking from human thoughts and not with the mind and heart of the spirit. as i refocused, i began to see it from another side, His side…i saw hurting people who lashed out because they were unhappy with themselves. i saw hurting people who were never taught how to manage their emotions. i saw hurting people who never tasted love, pure lovemy heart hurts now

soooooo, now, i felt the pain of some and realized maybe if i pray for them, maybe their life can be changed…maybe if i could touch one or two or three of them i can show them what love is…maybe if i smile at them, they’ll sense i’m not against them, but for them…maybe, just maybe, that will help them move toward the warmer side of love and succumb to the truth of His great love…hmmmm…

got lots to think about now…

peace out

ps…in answer to my own question …yes, i should extend grace to them…but if they’re on the dark side’s team…then, they should run… (sorry, there’s still some human blood running through my veins) 😉

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~~~

  2. Selah, so often the thought to retaliate comes but instead I want the enemy of our soul to run. Flesh and blood isn’t our problem but the powers of darkness. I love to see the enemy flee when I come in the opposite spirit. Prayer does change things. I have quietly come with love bombs when people are hurtful. The atmosphere changes for the better. Satan was really sorry he had Saul of Tarsus participate in the stoning of Stephen a righteous man. He prayed, Father forgive them. That prayer helped changed Saul the terrorist into Paul the Apostle to the Gentiles. We are going to see many become radical on fire Christians because people pray.
