Settling for trash relationships. That’s the note I had. Ha.
People just be out here peopling.
I cannot, for the life of me, fathom how people can just ignore texts and phone calls received from people they claim to love.
Like. I don’t get how some of us are so selfish and busy.
This has caused many an issue in many a relationship and I have had to let so many go or be put on pause right now.
Cuz I’m outchea (out here) frustrated because these people won’t call me or text me back.
In my mind, we are always on our phones so what is the excuse?
You say you love me?
I honestly question if we know what love is.
Love isn’t easy or convenient. Love is sacrificial.
Jesus on the cross much?
I don’t always feel like doing things. But it matters to the recipient. I think I might have just lied.
Because I do LOVE doing things. I love making people happy. I love making people smile. I love talking to and communicating with people. I love being in relationship with people.
Because I love Jesus. And I love being His representative in the earth. But then they get on my nerves and I don’t like them. So very complicated. Jesus took issue with people too. Just check him out in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Some of what you see may surprise you.
The Bible gives so much instruction for and so many examples of how we should relate to and with each other.
My disillusionment (chiiii I can’t find a synonym. Search Al Gore’s innanet (internet) if you don’t know. Apologies.) and hurt and frustration has a lot to do with the fact that a lot of the people who are trash towards me call themselves Christians and go to church and supposedly read the Bible.
I really believe we worship a God we created (I think I talk about this. I don’t know if it is a draft currently or a full on post. I may circle back and figure it out. If not, the blogs are searchable and you can hunt. Apologies).
Cuz if we were looking at the Bible, we would compromise more. We would value each other more. We would have more love. We would have more respect.
Part of the problem for me though is that I love too much. Or too many people. Or am too attached. That cannot be just my problem.
The Bible talks about laying aside weight and sin that besets us. We talk about both but focus mainly on the sin.
People say it and I tried it but backed off and tried it and have been in a vicious cycle for years: everybody can’t go where you’re going.
That hurts. That sucks. But it is true. I can pinpoint mistakes listening to the wrong people and holding on to the wrong people.
But at this point, as I inch closer to purpose, I am bound and determined to pay the cost to be the boss.
I am determined to be a living sacrifice-to give up whatever and whoever to get to my promised land.
For some, it’s temporary. For some it’s permanent. I’m gonna watch and pray (Scripture) to see who will serve me in every season and stage.
Again, maybe repetitive, but I’ve tried to make roots out of leaves and branches (hey Tyler Perry).
If a plane or hot air balloon is too heavy to fly, crashes and death are certain. They gotta drop weight.
So, with tears in your eyes, a heavy heart, go ahead and pick up your cross (Scripture). Go ahead and suffer with Him (Scripture). It will all be worth it.
That’s a promise, multiple, that you can take to the bank. You reap what you sow (Scripture). There’s a Scripture about joy and tears. There’s another about weeping and night. I dare you to go find them. Lol.
It will be alright. After all, Two Things Can Be True.
Go be great. The WORLD, you, me, strangers, is COUNTING on it.
