“CHANGED PERCEPTION MAY CHANGE YOUR LIFE”

 

It was just a Friday work day. I arrive at work always willing to share my new revelation what God is doing in my life. This was a day I needed to see outside of myself to realize we are all made different and to except our differences and respect where others are don’t crash boundaries.

Came in all excited and “BAM” felt like I got punched. Sharing with my client, my worker comes in and says you talk way too much, then my client joins her yes you are always talking. My worker says I can always tell when she is lonely, she calls me, and I don’t answer. Ouch then she says let’s stop talking and get this job done I’m driving to Indiana. Well I can say it hit me for a moment. Then I remember if I get triggered its usually something in me.

Went quite inward to see what was lurking in the foundation. This is what I found.

“Sometimes things happen for you not to you”

You can’t know yourself by yourself it takes an outsider to help you see if we are brave and courageous enough to look at the criticism. The bible calls it an open “Rebuke” I called on His wisdom.

James 3:17-18 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere, and a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Another translation uses peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

Let’s take a look at “Wisdom” prudence, discernment, foresight, flexibility and persistence. Wisdom if we will listen will prevent us making wrong choices that bring heartache.

My perception verse wisdom. We are all problem solvers at some level in our lives I just so happen to enjoy looking at relationships and being a voice of reason and truth. What I found is we all have an audience this was not my audience. I lead a hurting mom’s group on Monday nights and the women ask me all kinds of questions and say we could listen to you all night. WELL there you have it was I was trying to solve a problem where I had no authority to without the permission of another. I was humbled as He spoke truth. Finding your audience will save you heartache. Not everyone is like you except differences and let others be themselves. You will know your audience they will want what you have to say. They are your assignment.

Release the voice inside of doubt things aren’t always as they appear.

Matt 10:16 Behold, I am sending you out like sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. My charge as a believer is to be Christ like in a godless world. Rise to be with Him in the place of authority in heavenly places. We can become love if we follow His leading. Not the voice of the adversary.

WE must not compromise ours self we are all we got. We are His handmaidens He has suited us for every good work He has put before us the only way to advance is to follow His voice filled with the word the end goal is LOVE.

Mark 12:30-31 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this “Love your neighbor as yourself.  

May we learn to love well keeping our hearts open and not build walls of defense let His love cover you. You will be complete in Him.

Funny, sharing with my daughter last night how I crossed 3 lanes to get gas for $3 a gallon. Get there to realize $2.30 was a better deal. I felt the wink and laughter of my Father as he says silly you, I love your child like heart. Be Yourself !

Children In Competitive Sports – Be A Parent First

Our weekends are full of sports. If we aren’t attending our own children’s sports we are most likely fighting the weather in one way shape or form watching our nephews. The kids were able to play baseball together this summer and their dads coached the teams. Once they moved in to the All-Star teams the whole dynamic changed. We went from family hangouts to listening to belligerent parents, sometimes coaches, and every so often we’d see a kid lose his/her cool on the field. My heart hurt for those children, so passionate about their sport. Feeling every ounce of their loss in their bones, sometimes bringing them to tears.

Can You Grow Here

A friend of mine left me with this after we had our monthly phone call. She said, “but can you grow, if you decide this is the route you take, can you continue to grow?”  She is smart, profound when she doesn’t realize it, and she helps me clean my house while we talk.
