Good morning! Yesterday I did not have much time to blog. Not sure if I did the day before either without looking. Too many irons in the fire. Yesterday I needed a blog change and was going to just change it up real quick. Didn't like what I did in PSP and ended up selecting something old from the past just to get it decent. Ran out of time. I should know not to try to be creative when you only have a few minutes. But this morning, I just could NOT do a blog entry unless I was happy with the way it looked. I'm about a 8 on 10 on the current design that I worked on this morning. Played around with Text and I'm liking what it does! I really like putting things on a white pallet - it's a lot easier to work with.
Well, there is not much to tell that I can talk about, lol. Most of it would have to be put on a private blog. The devil is really throwing his havoc around on certain parts of the planet. I'm doing my best to keep him out of my sight but he keeps trying to sneak his evil little head into my world. I don't like drama. I don't want any part of it. Keep me out of it. Everyone that is miserable wants you to be miserable too. I guess I just now realized the phrase "Misery loves Company." Well I don't like to be miserable. I have had enough conflict in my life. So keep away devil! I choose CALM and PEACE and HAPPY and that serves me well. I'm thinking of the love chapter of the bible and thinking of these good things the Bible talks about.
And you know what? At 56 I'm finally learning to protect myself and let others know how I want to be treated. The boundaries are helping. And learning that Self-Care is not Selfish. You can still love another person and not want to be pulled into their arguments with others. It's very freeing. And To NOT be pulled into another person's drama, my friend, is NOT being selfish.
Everyone is responsible for their own actions. When you set a boundary, you are only responsible to give it in a spirit of love, grace, and kindness - no yelling, no "tone". It's out of love that you do it. How the other person responds to that, is not on you. They are responsible for their own behavior. So the devil comes chasing me down recently and I have had to draw lines of him not stepping over. If the boundaries don't work you may have to establish some consequences. And be willing to follow through. I will do whatever it takes not to be involved in drama, hear about drama, witness drama, and be sucked into drama. And of course prayer. If everyone would just pray and seek God in the matters, there wouldn't be such drama in our world.
If the Spirit of God is in a person the above will happen. If not, then what kind of demons need to be prayed over and gotten rid of. There are some BIG demons in this world. And God gives some very big lessons in trying to teach us how to deal with our own demons. He REFINES LIKE SILVER, the children he loves. It's not easy going through those trials. But you come out beautiful on the other end when you let God work on you.
And the above is God's definition of love. Is this how you love? These are tough concepts. It's hard to love others if you don't have love yourself. God is love. God's spirit is the fruits listed above in the graphic.
Where is God, where is love, where are the fruits of the Spirit? I don't know about you, but I'd much rather be part of the Godly atmosphere than the opposite.
What is the opposite?
Anyway those things were on my mind this morning. None of us are perfect. All of us have demons of some sort we battle with. And when you have a choice, I prefer to go with God and let his Spirit be within me and I don't want the demons to come and remove it.
Therefore, I CHOOSE HAPPY and PEACE!
Ya'll have a lovely day. It's a busy week and going by fast. I have had cleanse day yesterday and a Zoom Call last night and then some training I did afterwards on closing the paks.
So on to another iron in the fire! See ya'll tomorrow hopefully. I'm gone to have a shake. Num Num...breaking the cleanse day and ready to eat.
