Keep Your Mind at Peace and Heart Clear

bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. Colossians 3:13 NKJV

*Today, I am working on not just forgiving others, but not sweating the small stuff. So many people judge me who don't know me because I do not operate the way they want me to, or give them attention. Yet, they are the ones who are the individuals they assume I am...I am not stuck up, but cautious. I don't waste time with people who only want my attention for selfish reasons, or do not wish me well, and I am entitled by my Father in Heaven to exercise wisdom to date to be different and exude my purpose rather then attention whore on social media or be there for people who are cliquey or have a one track mind. You see, when you love for real and have an open mind towards all, people can't understand or cope with it and try to hurt you. Love, but guard your heart...Waste no time on people who assume who you are, rather than getting to know you; and love from a distance so you can keep growing and not be stagnant with people who want you to be a puppet or complacent.

The Responsibility of Wisdom

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. James 3:13 NKJV

Being wise and entrusted with wisdom often means that you are privileged in seeing and knowing things, but you aren't entitled to rubbing it in the face of others, especially if God gives you opportunities and favor. With wisdom comes the responsibility to know the truth, the right thing to do, but you also have to seize opportunity and still walk in love.

Multiplication From a Career & Purpose Perspective

And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his Lord's money. And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. His Lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His Lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. Matthew 25:15‭-‬18‭, ‬20‭-‬25‭, ‬27‭-‬28 KJV

*May we not waste the talents and resources that God has given us, especially due to fear. We have a job to do, a purpose to fulfill, and the generation of more resources to gain. We are more than a daily routine, and stagnation. Why are you REALLY here, and what should you be doing FOR REAL? What equity/blessings does God have for you???

Battle Against the Mind

For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16 KJV

*We have the ability to think positive like Christ, and remember His promises. If we are negative, it's because our faith is low and/or we have forgotten that God lives in us. He is waiting for us to change our mindset and trust Him. Where's your mind? What is the enemy trying to get in your head vs what God said in His word.

There is No Denying God

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10 KJV

*No matter what a nonbeliever says or does, God will ALWAYS get the glory. One day, EVERY KNEE WILL BOW and EVERY TONGUE WILL CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD. There is already no denying Him for real. You're wired for a connection with God...That void anyone feels is the lack there of. Plus, God is all around you, in every element, if you take the time to look. How can you REALLY deny Him??? So, why not take a moment to talk to Him...There is no such thing as happen stance or luck..It was predestined by God. Let go, and accept that...

Coming Into Focus

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 KJV

*It's so easy to become disgusted by people, news, ignorance,  etc. However,  we must train our minds to focus on God's good works, and the positivity He placed in us in order to receive His promises.

A Heart Like God's

Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You. Psalms 143:8 NKJV

*"Do you know that your brain is not designed to fear but it is hard-wired for love? Fear is not a natural response, despite what you may believe. Fear is a learned response and that is actually good news. Why? If you can learn to fear, you can also learn not to fear." So, in transparency, giving a full heart is fearful in my opinion. People hurt what they don't undersrand, and they don't love you like God. However, God sends people to help you grow. Plus, no matter how much I want to say forget it and give me an island because these folks are crazy, I still see love and pitifulness when I look at people...Guess this is what happens when you continue to ask God to make your heart like His. Even the ugliest and rudest acting, selfish person saddens me because they are crying for love and attention...Interesting how that works. Don't act on learned behavior. Work on implementing the natural behavior God put inside of you.
