‘Jealousy Stagnates’

Hi, Everyone. I’ve been so busy lately promoting my new book that I didn’t get a chance to blog about a topic that has been on my mind now for a little while. I’ve titled this blog: ‘Jealousy Stagnates’ for a very important reason that I’m about to lay out here right now.

Have you ever had a friend whom you always compliment even for the slightest thing like a new hair-do / hair cut or for even bigger things like a promotion on the job or some other type of success, yet for some reason when there’s something new about you / something worthy of a compliment, that friend is utterly quiet? Got any ‘friends’ like that? How does it feel to be the only one complimenting all the time as if you’re on a one-way street? I guess you’ve thought about it, but don’t really vocalize it- particularly to your friend.

The thing is… I realize that some people came from backgrounds where no one ever or rarely ever complimented them for anything they did that was noteworthy – whether in the smaller sense or the larger sense of the word – and so as they grow and mature, they don’t know how to express compliments to others even though they are now being complimented by others. They feel awkward expressing such kindness and therefore, they don’t put in the effort to break out of the box, so to speak. I’ve met some really good people that are like that: They really have that issue because they came from some unimaginably tough backgrounds and thus, being ‘nice’ like that is something they have to work on. Okay, with that out of the way, let’s get on to the crux of the matter (thusly, the title).

Many other people in this world today simply hate to see even the ones they claim to love, get ahead. That’s the fact of the matter. If they’re not doing something that’s positive and worthy of respect or accolades themselves, they don’t believe anyone else should receive any type of accolades or recognition (not that accolades is something you should be looking for). In other words, some people just have such contaminated hearts that they can’t see themselves happy for anyone. Those type of people are rightly in the ‘stagnated’ category… and they’ve put themselves there unknowingly. See, when a person is envious of another person, they find themselves not achieving those things that they greatly desire. It’s not that they don’t have the ability to achieve those things; it’s just that they’ve planted seeds of envy that have taken root and sprouted in their lives, and they find themselves stagnated seemingly like ‘forever’ from getting to the point where they really would like to be.

What’s the remedy?: Learn how to be happy for others. I have a whole chapter in ‘Seeing Beyond The Natural’ book that speaks about that. I knew it needed to be there. If people learn how to do that and actually work at it, they will find themselves moving forward in the direction they were ‘pre-destined’ to go. There’s no way they can miss their destiny. However, if they allow jealousy to consume them (some to the point where they can’t even pay a person a simple compliment) they will find themselves stagnated – most likely – permanently. What a sad, miserable way to exist.

Let’s rise above that negativity and be the best that we can be for ourselves and each other by having the right type of heart and mind-set as we continue our journey in this world.

Have a great day and all the best to you.

Not just ‘talking the talk…”

Good day, All. I would like to encourage everyone today to show love and respect for others regardless of how we think or feel. If someone is in need and you’re in a position to help them – if only a little – then please do so as your act of charity and compassion can dramatically affect a person’s life. Furthermore, when you help people, you are also being kind to God. I read a note from a lady today who stated that she has decided to live her life WITHOUT Christians in it. I do not know this lady, but this is very disheartening. She expressed that she is “scarred for life” by those who profess the Faith because many do not seem to genuinely love and care about other people. They can see someone in need and simply turn a blind eye to that person’s plight. This is not what Jesus exemplified for us. Selfish living is damaging to the church and we must examine ourselves and realize that instead of just talking the talk, we must walk the walk. I am not encouraging being a doormat for people who just want to ‘use’ you and no matter what you do for them, it’s never good enough: I know people like that. If the Holy Spirit truly lives inside of you, you will know who has a sincere need and if you are able to help. He will lead and guide you. The key is to not ignore the instructions of The Holy Spirit. If we want to be with The Lord when we close our eyes to this earth, all of this surface stuff of just going to church and saying ‘Lord, Lord’ every so often will not be the means of getting there. I assure you, being “religious” will not do it; we had better be deep and our walk with God had better be real.
 

Maneuvering through this life…

Each one of us are on a special journey. This life is made up of so many roads, mountains, twists, turns, barriers, obstacles, and if we maneuver correctly, we will ultimately arrive at our intended destination. When we see an obstacle in the road of life, if we just keep standing behind it, will it move? Absolutely not! We must apply some form of pressure to somehow get it out of our way so that we can continue travelling onward. Sometimes though, the obstacles are too big and we cannot push them alone. We need help.

If you feel you are facing an obstacle today and perhaps, you looked at this issue for months or even years, I want you to know that you have what it takes to clear the road. You may not feel strong, but What lives inside of you has more power than you can imagine. It’s that all-powerful Force within that can not only remove the obstacle, but can also crush it into a million pieces so that that particular obstacle will not form again.  

Learn what it takes to successfully and victoriously maneuver throughout this journey. This will inspire even those who cannot see a flicker of hope left.  .

When Anxiety Takes Over…

Many people today are having such a hard time just getting through the day. Waking up for some in the morning seems like more of a task than a blessing. For others, waking up in the middle of the night worrying about finances and other issues is something that happens to them quite regularly. Life is full of challenges and sometimes, you just don’t know what to do or how you’re going to make it. Unfortunately, many have gotten so frustrated and burdened that they felt they just couldn’t take another moment of this existence and decided to end it.

I know what it’s like to be at my wits end. I know what it’s like to feel like just ‘giving up’. I remember those days very well and because I’ve had days like that, my heart is filled with compassion for persons struggling with those debilitating situations and thoughts. I want to let everyone know that there is hope. Tomorrow will come and things will get better. That troubling, seemingly insurmountable circumstance is subject to change. What you deliberately convince yourself of is what will either turn the tide or keep you in that particular state. You can pull yourself out of it. Just know that you have what it takes to do the work that is needed to be done.

If only you can see yourself the way your Creator sees you and not how others perceive you or even you, yourself at this point in time, your life will conform to that belief.  I hope I have encouraged you today.
