Always remember…Everyone is someone that someone has gotten tired of…some are more tolerant of your flaws than others
For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.
2Thessalonians 2:11-12 (NASB)
This is a tough passage, not because it is hard to understand; the meaning is abundantly clear. It is tough because it is such a stern warning for what awaits those who insist upon loving the lie and hating the truth; nobody “plays” God for a fool.
Paul has made it quite clear in verses 9-10 that those who fall to Satan’s deceit have done so by their own choice, and let no man suggest that these poor little dears are victims. We know this because the Thessalonians did not allow themselves to fall into this wickedness, for they also had…

1. To commit your life to Christ and become a part of his family. If you haven’t done that, what are you waiting on? Not to decide is to decide.
2. To commit to the habits that will help you grow spiritually. Don’t be a wishy-washy, lukewarm, shallow Christian. Go head on. Be all that God wants you to be.
3. To use your talents, gifts, abilities, and experiences to serve God and others. Some of you have been sitting on the bench, and it’s time to get in the game.
4. To share Jesus Christ with others. Once you know the Good News, you’re to become a messenger so that others may hear it, too.
“If you are … unable to make up your mind and undecided in all you do, you must not think that you will receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:7-8 GNT).
I do not like being lied to but who does??? I do not like to argue. I give respect and expect to receive it but if I don’t get it… all I can say was it was nice knowing you. ✌️
I always go to places and people watch it may sound crazy but you can learn something from everyone. From the distance they walk from someone to an actual photo.
You can learn from your past and you can definitely learn from pain. But if you watch people they will show you who they are by their actions not words.
It will take me knowing you for more than a couple of months to get to know you.
First, God gives you a dream for your life. Then, you have to make a decision about it. The third stage is delay, where you wait for God to work in his time. The next stage is difficulty, where God tests you. Then, you might reach a dead end, which will make you want to give up. But, in the end, God always brings you to deliverance, the final stage of his six phases of faith.
I have not had time to write lately it is summer in Louisiana and I am trying to enjoy life before hurricanes.
I had a nice talk today with someone I have known for a while and they told me what a great friend I was to them and that they appreciated me for always being there for them. I was really impressed and never knew that I meant anything to them. Goes to show you some people still care and appreciate someone who genuinely has their best interest at heart.
I am a person that can be seen as nice but I will not tell you what you want to hear I will tell you what you need to hear. I do not believe in sugar coating anything and if I feel you have hurt my feelings I will be open about that as well. If you want to leave a positive impression on someone you should genuinely do positive things and not think about just yourself.
I was told today by my friend that he was glad he never got on my bad side because he said he did not want to be a character in my next book. I could do nothing but laugh. I do not have a real bad side I treat people with respect, am honest and just expect to get treated back the same way. I write about things I have experienced or have seen and think some of it would make a great story line. People can learn from my mistakes and do better.
I always tell people if you want me to say or remember you as being a positive person in my life be just that a positive influence. But if you have decided to treat me unfairly, then the words and actions may become a story. If Taylor Swift can do it so can Rachel Stewart. I give everyone a chance to do what is right, but I do not manipulate anything or anyone. I play the cards I am dealt and listen to the inner voice God gave me called intuition.
No matter what mood I am in I always try to be mindful of others. Life is not only about the reflection in the mirror but of what positive impact or what you can do to help others. People will ALWAYS remember how you made them feel. I just do not want to be the person that someone regrets meeting.
Some are not raised like I was to be a humble servant, loyal, honest and true like I was back in the day. I have learned to live at peace! 😊
No matter where you think you have moved to in life #karma never forgets a face or an address #treatotherswell
