This is from our first post back on 4/19/16. It was a Tip of the Day!

I Messed Up Yesterday!

Image
I let someone upset me. Yes, I realize that people will upset us in life, but I allowed someone to get me angry. I didn’t look to God for almost an hour and even when I did, it wasn’t for long. What happened? I’m at work and our new supervisor was out at training. While he was out we had several emergencies that we handled in his absence. The end of the day approached and I provided him with a status update and informed him that I needed to leave for the day. While informing him that I was leaving I advised him that he needed to ask to be excused from the training that he was attending to free him to be involved in sorting out the emergencies. His response to me: “It is a problem that you can’t accommodate working additional hours and be a team player”. I didn’t remind him that I had already worked an additional hour. At the time of his writing I was already passed my closing time, trying to “help”. I responded: “Thank you for the kind words, as I am still here working.” I then closed…

It's Time for YOU 2 Be Happy!

Have you ever openly admitted that you were depressed?  How did you feel after you were done?  Do you know someone who has confided in you that they are depressed?  How did they feel after their admission?
Maybe you had or you have no one to talk to?  Maybe you have a loved one who won't talk about it.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Did you know that you can tell God anything?  You can also encourage someone else to tell God anything.

Encouragement About Your "Words"

Image
In my past I was known for telling people "off".  It was my reputation.  Living with this sin right beside me I took pride in being able to hurt people with my words.  I did not realize that one day I would deal with the consequence of "not caring" how others took my words.  To add, I didn't realize that hurtful words would come from different people or rather, from those that I would not expect it from.

In response to my "receiving" what I had given out so often, I developed a tough skin.  I convinced myself that words just wouldn't hurt me.  I built a wall around myself and kept going.  What did hurt were the relationships that died as result of the words being exchanged.  I could forgive someone for the things that they had said and I could ask for forgiveness for the things that I said, but relationships were stalled or left for dead thereafter.

I lost precious years with a dear loved one because neither of us knew the right "words"…
