No matter how bad someone else hurts someone else, it doesn’t make it right to hate or be mean. Jesus was asked how many times we should forgive someone, and he said 70 times 7. I think that it doesn’t even mean that number at all. Forgiveness means to forgive and forget. So if we forgive and forget we can not accurately keep a count of how many times we’ve been hurt, because it’s forgotten. God is love, and for that reason it is wrong for us to walk in anything else. We are supposed to be a reflection of our Father so if we aren’t walking in His attributes or character, then we might be serving the wrong Father. Forgive each other, if someone has hurt anyone else, in ways that are difficult, to forgive, we might have to ask the Father, to help, us to let it go and forgive.
If we do not forgive each other, and love each other, how can we expect forgiveness, over our own faults. We all make mistakes, and if we are not expressing, the love of the Father, we are reflecting the wrong character.
It can be difficult, and irritating when someone sits at the green light in traffic to long and cause us to wait a few minutes longer. Practice walking in the character of Christ, instead of getting angry. When someone is Cursing and getting angry can be a reason for some to lose their blessing.
I learn this lesson more and more every day. Even Thumper from Bambi knew that if you can’t say something nice not to say anything. The question is why is it so hard to live by this principle? The world bombardes everyone with negativity on a daily basis, and it is up to each individual how to handle this fact. Learning when not to speak, can be detrimental to someone’s career, and life. When I was a manager at zaxbys chicken, a fast food restaurant in Enterprise Alabama, there was an employee that called out all the time. One day I was just coming in for my shift and someone said something to me about that person. I was upset already for some reason or another, and asked “what, did she call out again?” I was not aware that not only, she was behind me, but she had also, volunteered to work a shift someone else had called out for that night. I then upset her so much that she didn’t work. If I had just shut it, the night would have been more of a success.
I have found that it is imperative to listen first, then think about what one wants to say and if it is important enough to say it. It is wise to think to oneself is this statement uplifting or beneficial to the person. Remember, what we talk about brings energy into the world it is up to each person as to what energy they are creating. Speak positive things into existence, and stop bringing negative energy, in your life and into, the life of others. A good way to practice this at home is through affirmations. Speak what one wants instead of what one sees or feels. Think positive and it will help you speak positive. It starts with one thought at a time.
When someone is lonely they should think of this. How does Jesus feel when He gave everything for us to be free, but still so many of us, choose our own selfish desires. When we do this, we are following the wrong person, because we are warned only to put faith in one person and that is not a man but the son of God. Faith is believing the things we don’t see like it has already happened.
No matter how bad things get, trust in the Father because He will watch over His own. Build your faith by listening to, and reading the Word of God. Whatever we give our time to that is not from Him can be tearing our faith down. The enemy does not have much time left and will bring every, and any temptation to anyone in his way. Stay strong ask for help if you need it pray hard and stay motivated.
A bad habit is something done on a regular basis, that is harmful, dangerous, and costly that becomes a pattern. A bad habit can also be anything that separates someone from their spiritual walk, or from their faith. It is important to realize that there is no judgement here, at breaking bad habits my number one purpose is to help others break bad habits and create good, positive, healthy habits. I am not coming against anyone, I love you all I just hate the evil things people say and do. It is important to break bad habits because everything someone does, says, sees, listens too, and thinks, can and will affect the whole world around them. What someone is thinking about all day can and will affect their day, so its important to think good things. How someone reacts to negative things happening in their life will affect them.
Understanding how to overcome bad habits is not the only thing it takes to quit them it also takes discipline. It takes discipline to do most important things in life, and without it there is no stability or structure. Discipline is the most important thing to posses when things go wrong, especially for someone that uses habits to deal with stress. My suggestion is to find healthy habits, that relieve stress. My favorite stress relieving habits are: art, writing, studying, cooking, outdoors, when its nice, playing sports, prayer, meditation. It is important to meditate on positive things. If someone is meditating and they keep thinking about negative things the whole time this can have a negative effect on things. I also love to sing positive songs to myself. There are many negative songs out today and if people would listen to the words of the music before they start singing it then they would realize they are cursing themselves. Remember even when someone is cursing someone else they are really, in turn, cursing themselves. This is because the energy that someone puts out in the world comes back to them. The Bible refers to this as you reap what you sow, but the world calls this karma.
I have had a hard time with complaining, because I know this causes bad things to happen. The strategy I have devised to defeat this habit is saying things I am thankful for before it happens. When someone says they are thankful for something before it happens, this is called affirmations or faith. I am going to affirm some things I am personally believing for here, but I encourage everyone that reads this to leave some affirmations here that they believe are coming in their life.
I am thankful for breaking bad habits and helping others to break bad habits. I am thankful for a new car, because I know that is something my family needs. I am thankful for the people in my life that speak the truth and for me to find the truth. I am thankful for a great job, because the one I work at will not be right for me much longer. I am thankful for all of my friends being delivered from everything they need to be free from. I am thankful for being debt free and not owing anyone anything. I thank you all for reading and look forward to believing with you all.
