Wisdom Notes-20

It Blesses My Heart To Love; It Blesses My Soul To Give; It Blesses My Everything To Care About Others & Being Needed Gives My Life Purpose.

I learned the hard way that my love, my giving, my caringness and my need to be needed was hindering certain People and getting in the way of God’s plan for their lives. I became their god and my God held my blessings up to keep me from hindering them.

God wanted a chance to show them how much he loved them if only they would trust in Him.

Materialistic

Materialistic: Love of THINGS (Jewelry, Money, Clothes, Cars, Drugs, Slaves, Land, Houses, House-Hold Items, Collectible Items, Stuff, Junk, etc…), at any cost, by any means necessary, forsaking all others. The need for THINGS comes before love and the well being of other… you’re materialistic.

From My Heart: It’s a thin line between being materialistic and enjoying the finer thing of life. The difference is, enjoying the finer things in life, you are able to share, give in a time of need; act of kindness from a sincere heart in the name of God and love. In being materialistic, your priorities are a little screwed up; Cars are more important than a roof over your head; hair, nails and clothes more important than food for your children; drugs are more important than family and how you look is more important than how you feel.

Last Words

Last Words (Before The Good-Byes): Don’t go, Don’t leave, Please Stay, Don’t die, Don’t give up, Please give us another try, Can we start over, Please listen, Please let me explain, Please understand, Please don’t walk away, It just happened, Please say something. I have to go, I’m not coming back, I’m leaving, I’m gone for good this time, It’s over, I’m done, I can’t take no more, We’re finished, Don’t ever come back, Get out, I don’t want you anymore, Why are you still here, I’m not in love with you anymore, Why won’t you leave, Why can’t you stay, I didn’t mean too, I didn’t try too, I didn’t think, I didn’t know, It’s not you it’s me, I’m sorry, Goodbye.

From My Heart: The moment when there is nothing you can do, say, think, feel, pray, beg, cry could change that moment. You want to speak from the depth of your soul but all you can do is be still, wait, listen, accept and obey. Sometimes, in certain situations, there is no undo-s, redo-s, start over-s or forgiveness. Life goes on. Everything begins and ends. Everything has a start and a finish. Everything changes. Nothing stays the same. Everyone lives and everyone will die. People come and people go. Just appreciate what you have and trust God for the rest. Nothing and nobody belongs to you. So, when it’s time to lose what you have, give up what you’ve been holding on to…. Let it go, Let them go.

No one but God is forever.

Broken Spirited

Broken Spirited Defined: When the doors are closed in your face too many times; When hard times last a little too long; When problems come a little too often; When nothing good ever last; When no one is ever there for you when you need them the most; When your worst outweigh your bad and there is no comfort in your nights or days…A broken spirit …. your faith become thin as the skin of a dry leaf; your spirit grows weary and your prayers fade in the ceiling; tears harden your heart; your strength feels like it left your body to defend for itself; you’re emotions becomes numb; your mind is at stand still like stagnate water and your soul broken into a million pieces.
Your what-ever-attitude says that you have given up. You go to church and can’t lift your hands to give God praise. You want to speak life to your situation but your lips won’t move. You’ve given up trying to make it work because all your hopes are gone. You listen to people trying to say things to encourage you but you can’t hear them. Your eyes are open but you can’t see. Going through the motions of everyday life and nobody sees your pain. Tears behind the smile and hurt behind the laughter. Your prayers are short and to the point because you don’t feel that God hears you. All your memories of hurt, pain and all the bad things drown your spirit. And you find yourself mad at God to only find that satan had a plan for you before you were born and your people in your past and your own choices played a part in his plan.
