We all need our moments to vent frustration. We all take those moments to gripe and complain. Cause sometimes moments suck. And we have friends who love us enough to give us that outlet, and we gladly return the favor.
There just comes a point though where enough is enough. Here’s what happens. You try to be positive with a negative person. And then they cross that “venting” line when you realize they have nothing nice to say 97% of the time.
I.T doesn’t have to be big things, but little things ALL day long. Every single day. From the weather, to the ethnicity of the driver they think is going to slow, or the construction crew working ALL the time and traffic is awful. And in and on and on. ALL day EVERY Day. Redundant it becomes, but then you start to change with it.
You find yourself annoyed, then you just can’t stand them. And you’re attitude and spirit becomes similar to their. Ewwwwwww🤢
And we’re now just as grouchy and miserable as them. We’ve let their nastiness become our own.
That my friends is the exact opposite of what God wants us to do.
Surround yourself with those that will not pull you into the depths of misery. Fight it. And when you see that it’s getting the best of you, walk aaway and pray Don’t quit.
I have found myself recently frequently in that position of wanting to quit. I’m physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually exhausted. And somewhere deep inside the Holy Spirit reminds me that’s exactly what Satan wants. And I pray for the Holy Spirit to guide me.
I know what is right, and I’m learning that I may just be suffering through this storm to be someone else’s anchor. There is a plan. Faith please keep me floating because I can feel myself fighting. And some days I’m not sure which battle is winning. Or rather I know which battle I want to win, I just don’t see the courage God sees to continue.
So praying to keep from drowning, and a stronger faith to believe that in His time, not mine, all will be revealed.
