Re-Routing

Perhaps you hit a snag. You have an assignment to complete and something or someone seems to be more of a hindrance than a blessing.

It’s possible that the heat has been turned up on the process to completion and quitting seems more feasible than striving.

Complaining/venting brings more assurance than planning. And shutting down/stepping away becomes a vital part of the plan.

You pray. You scream. You cry. You vent. You read your Word. Worship Pray. And still… Nothing changes.

Nothing changes.

But You.

You change.

See every assignment is designed to teach you something. To stretch you in some way, shape or form. If God sent you, It was for a reason. There is something you have to gain or maybe even lose through the experience.

Learning how to go through properly is essential for your growth. Setting boundaries, even in Ministry/Leadership is imperative to your sanity and the sanity of those you work with. More importantly, being sure of your call/assignment supersedes everything else.

Your task will probably not go away. The pull to succeed may quite possibly increase, even when all hell is breaking loose around you. So it’s up to you to regroup. Develope another divine strategy. Stay your course no matter what.

Now.

This doesn’t include being walked over, disrepected or taken advantage of. This is about obeying God in a way that glorifies Him and gets the job done.

Although you may want to. And it may be easier. Don’t give up. Stay your course. Just change up the way in which you reach your destination.

You got this. And God’s got you.

But Those Feelings are Legit

I sit back.

I watch.

I observe.

I learn.

Sometimes though….I cringe.

I become easily annoyed at how dismissive believers can be to the valid feelings of others. No we shouldn’t stay in our emotions. But we must acknowledge them, process through them so we can successfully move pass whatever state our emotions are in.

We don’t have the right to tell anyone their feelings aren’t valid. How about we help them process through instead of intiatiating an unhealthy situation.

Believers do more damage than good when our words become discouraging and our actions become damaging. As our “I don’t mean no harms” inflict more pain than our listening ear ever could.

We expect people to hear us out but will damn anyone who chooses to not match our methods of growth and change. Perhaps your path to healing has too many unnecessary obstacles. Detours that could have been avoided if one was given the opportunity to release, reflect, become revived and are than able to move forward. There is more than one strategy that works. I promise you there is.

I cringe at how damaging and judgmental our words become when conflict and gossip, drama and causing problems supersedes helping our brother or sister up when they fall. Instead it seems we enjoy the position of the downtrodden and become shocked as all get out when they are eventually able to stand on their own two feet.

What happend to carrying each others burdens (Galatians 6:2)?

We should be encouraging one another and building one another up (1 Thessalonians 5:11) not tearing each other down.

And about that conflict though…

I’ve learned to deal with conflict firstly, when I am calm and have processed my feelings. Personally, I’m not always able to express myself properly if my emotions are too high. So I choose majority of the time to pray and wait until I have calmed down. Than I address whatever the problem is head on. I know what works for me, so I do that. What works for one may not work for all.

No matter the situation, I am given the opportunity to learn about myself. My patience and tolerance level for certain things has changed tremendously. Because of Christ I can work right beside people who dog me behind my back and smile like nothings wrong. I can push my pain to the side to help others because I always chose to love like Christ.

The thought of others being treated poorly because of their emotional and mental differences makes me cringe.

My weapon of choice is prayer. And I choose to equip the ones affected/infected with the Word and a lesson in self love. I hate to see people’s insecurities played on.

It’s not cool. It’s not like Christ. It causes confusion. Aint nobody got time for that.

I sit back.

I watch.

I observe.

I learn.

I move accordingly.

I’m diffent and I love it.

I am Unstoppable.

Petty Maturity 2018

I don’t live my life according to standards of man. I have the tendency to make my own rules. Rules that coincide with principles I’ve learned from a biblical perspective.

See you can’t expect me to dislike someone just because you do. Especially when the actions of that individual haven’t proven what you perceive to be your reality.

Done is the day where He said and what She said is more important than what God has already said.

Tired is an understatement. And petty. Petty is becoming so over used. And the power of Kindness and prayer is being undervalued. Because people have seem to forgotten that prayer, it actually works. Praying for your enemy not only benefits them, but you too. It initiates growth and maturity. Instead the lack of integrity is proven low every time we choose to go low, instead of going high.

Real talk.

When do we grow up? When do we take the time to implement regular heart checks? Self examining our insecurities. And re evaluating our self worth. Whether we realize it or not, we tend to push our short comings onto others instead of embracing where we are in order to grow into who we are destined to become.

Why try to get in the middle of a friendship that has already successfully survived the test of time? Why exaggerate the struggle of another to make yourself look better? How does someone else’s downfall actually make others feel better?

It just doesn’t make any sense. It’s sad.

Living life by my own rules doesn’t mean I drag people through the dirt. It simply means I’m a Trendsetter. And I choose to set the example of better. Show others how to strive for divine excellence. And when they fall…I help them regain their strength rather than kick them when they are down.

Enough is enough.

There will always be more power in your prayers then in your petty.
