There I go as I listen to what some close friends have to say.
Listen to their unheeded noise.
Instead of living in the freedom of the Spirit they often reside in the flesh.
I so enjoy when they tear into my resolve of my divine gladness of what I have and where I am with Him.
I come to the Lord with a grateful heart and so blessed to draw breath.
I know no man is meant to be an island, but one must choose what words to accept from a friend's lips. What wise words will help achieve the greatest good for all involved, total peace from the intended recipient.
Ultimatiums should never be given, do it my way or else.
I love walking with God, I like having people find where they need to be, to develop their own walk seperate from me, that like the waters of the oceans relationships must ebb and tide so that there is a certain wisdom gained.
Friends sometimes want what you have and therefore are never glad of their perceived ideas of what they think they need from you, or they want to become you.
The ugly green of jealousy often rears its ugly head.
Instead the people we call friends should reach happiness, fulfillment with God with a large pinch of self-awareness of where they have been and where they want to see themselves in the now and in the gift of the future.
Because people cannot give to others what they do not truly possess.
So a more beneficial relationship with others cannot be achieved until the whole being of the Holiest Blesser is met.
That is the only way we can hope to be more of a blessing to each other, with an equally larger measure of understanding and forgiveness of each other's honest short-comings as well as their strengths that do exist at least in our Father God's eyes.
I prefer being alone with God and His Holy silence and joy.
I will listen to Him as He makes me able.
I know that I am far from perfect as a human being but my insight, my gift, my aim is true.
God finds me worthy to be,
How about you?
How about you?
