🌾 You must practice what you preach to grow and to shed off the old self..
Many will ignore you, talk behind your back and then crawl out of the woodwork to USE you 🥺
🙏 Help me deal with them in your way Lord and not be a pushover but not be like them – they are of the world and lost and know not what they do and I am to be a peculiar people for you.. KEEP ME ON THE NARROW PATH OUT OF ANY DITCH OR SNARE
👉 You minister to others on dealing with toxic users and abusers and you will have to walk out what you preach…
🌾 You ask to be more Christ like and to have patience, love and meekness and the pruning will come..
🙏 I will lift up my eyes and say “ouch”, “prune me Lord” “refine me Lord” “guide me and give me hinds feet for this rocky path Lord” until I get to the point where I say “thank you Lord” “Amen Lord”
🥺 People sure can hurt us 💔 I would much rather lay that at Jesus’s feet and cast that care on Him and have the hurt of the pruning that will sanctify me and make me more like Him – I give this to you today Lord 🌾🕊🙌
📖 For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
📖 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
📖 But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
