I am happy to be writing this to you this morning. I’ve missed writing, but I’m still putting myself together. 😊
Straight to my message.
One of my very close friend, lost someone like a sister to her during the week. I felt so bad for her, because instead of only properly mourning, what of most she felt was a bit of regret of how much time she never got to spend with this sister/friend and how much time she wasted on others who didn’t appreciate her or reciprocated her love and also even disrespected her along the way.
But I learnt a lesson earlier during the year to just literally keep away from them and love them from far. I remember then that it was such a hard thing to do, most of these people looked at me funny like I was crazy.
“LOVING FROM FAR IS NOT A CRIME”.”They started saying all sorts of things and making me feel worse when they noticed my decision of reducing my relationship with them. I thought to myself couldn’t they take a mirror and look at themselves to decipher if they are the reason I was behaving like that.
“I GUESS I WASN’T WORTH FIGHTING FOR”This morning as I was about to do my quite time. BDHM also did the quiet time topic on exactly my thoughts. So I thought it was the perfect time to let you know my thoughts on it and as usual once again he has spoken much better than I could ever explain myself.
As a woman I would have ranted and vented on and on and on 🙈🙈😂😂😂😂.
So read this little quiet time post
QUIET TIME BY BDHMPsalm 1:1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor…sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
The world has two types of people: those who believe in you and those who have no confidence in you. Learn to turn away from people who despise you.
I can always tell when someone despises me at heart. Every leader should learn to detect the spirit of critical and hateful people (1 John 4:1). Rejection is a spiritual thing and can be discerned spiritually.
I once spoke to a doctor in the USA. I had always known that this fellow despised me. Though he never said much to me, I knew it in my spirit. Just like David, I turned away from him and “flowed” with those who believed in me. He confirmed this and said, “What you are saying is true. Somehow, in those days I didn’t like what you were doing. But now, I have come to appreciate your ministry.”
No one can flourish in an environment of spitefulness. In some churches, professionals are neither regarded nor respected as far as the ministry is concerned.
If you are a lawyer, doctor or accountant, the ministers may consider you incapable of ministry work. I advise such people to attend a church where they can be involved in ministry without being despised. Some full-time ministers simply do not recognize the role of lay people.
In some places, poor and uneducated people are despised.
It is important to turn away from an environment where you are despised. You can only flourish where people respect and love you. Continue reading “LESSON LEARNT”
