I believe ANYTHING is possible!

I believe that ANYTHING is possible.  

I shake my head in disbelief at a lot of things.  I’m talking about shocking things like friends who one day decide you are not their friend, husbands (or wives) who decide their mate is just not who they love anymore and children who decide their parents have never really supported them.  I know life happens and people change their minds for all kinds of reasons, but sometimes, my mouth drops open and I’m like, “Whaaaaat?”

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

I’ve seen circumstances, events and people change on a dime and I never saw that coming!  It’s like some kind of CRAZY just entered and said, “Ok, I’m in charge now.”  AND THAT is exactly what happens …CRAZY walked in.  CRAZY took over.  CRAZY waltzed in all cocky like, sat down, kicked it’s feet up and settled in.

I’m talking about the CRAZY that makes us shake our heads, squint our eyes and scratch our noggin.  (again…”Whaaaat?”)

And CRAZY pops up like a weed in a sidewalk crack!  You are like WHERE did that come from and HOW is that growing out of cement?!?!?

That kind of crazy is like a fire that consumes the land.  It takes our breath away sometimes.  It makes us question ourselves.  It makes us DOUBT.  It makes us sad.  It makes us cry, scream, lament…

BUT LET’S FLIP THIS MESS…

Going back to my original statement: I believe ANYTHING is possible.

Crazy can be defeated.  God can give us all the tools we need to slay the crazy.  You can kick the crazy out of it’s easy chair, pull that weed up and throw it out!

ANYTHING is possible…

Relationships can be redeemed, love can grow again and we can move forward.  We can wipe our tears, restore our trust and move forward.

I know that sometimes crazy has made some kind of scar while it was visiting. Sometimes it might even cause us to remove something or someone from our lives that we never thought would have to go, but as I said, with GOD we can forgive, mend and move on.

We need to identify the crazy for what it is — it is the devil working.  Crazy chaos and insane drama is what he loves the most.  The nasty of this life is used by the devil to try and break us.  We must stand up and stand out and stand on the word of God!  Rebuke the devil by the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST and defend yourself with the truths God has given us.

My life verse is NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER. -Isaiah 54:17

I hang on to that verse like a security blanket.  It comforts me when I whisper it. I’ve written it on my mirror, door jams, in permanent marker on my desk at work and is visible all around my daily life, because I know WITH GOD…

I believe ANYTHING is possible.

No Negotiation

You cannot negotiate the truth.  

Ok, so my opinion is not yours. I understand that, but if it’s true…

IT IS TRUE. 

If I tell you I like the color green and you tell me that I don’t …whaaaat?

That is a non-negotiable point. 

I LIKE GREEN! 

In fact, it’s my favorite color. 

Green makes me feel happy. It gives me a free feeling.

I know it is my opinion and perhaps not yours, but it’s still true. 

It’s the same way I feel about God. 

My God is real. He is alive and sent His Son to save me.  YES, this is my opinion, but it is TRUTH. 

Try and argue, try and tell me it ain’t so. Ok.  

Yes, that’s all I have to say. 

OK. 

I, of course, hope you change your mind and accept Jesus as your Savior. AGAIN I say,”Of course!” But my opinion of the FACT will not change due to your difference with me.  

NO NEGOTIATION. 

Let’s be POSITIVE!

Let’s be POSITIVE.

LET’S BE POSITIVE!

STOP looking to those who like to yell and holler about what makes them upset and seek PEACE.

STOP lifting up those who think negative posts and comments are awesome as they reach out for others to feed the fire of their negativity.  Instead, let’s spread more LOVE.

How about keep the grumpiness to yourself and let it die within you instead of allowing it to explode and splatter on all of those around you?

How about seek the truth before spreading lies and making up rumors about whatever you think happened?

We need to be THE LIGHT.

We need to show others the way.

Can we please stop jumping on the bandwagon of she said, he said, they did or didn’t and ride the ENERGY BUS?

Can we spread the POSITIVE energy through doing good things, not jumping to conclusions and being a happy person?

Let’s ride down that road, take that path and bring others with us!

LET’S BE POSITIVE!

JUST BE NICE

This was a post I put up on facebook yesterday:

Constructive (and positive–the building up kind) criticism is my friend. Destructive helps no one. To the one giving DESTRUCTIVE: it might make YOU feel better about yourself for a little while, but soon, you will have to do it again and again and again and….to help your ego or something. Message for today: ***BUILD OTHERS UP*** I truly believe that is the reason we are here. Just sayin. …I feel a blog coming on..

I never blogged about it, because I figured I’d just rant about negative talk.  Everyone knows that stuff is poison.  It’s destructive.  It hurts feelings and does not make friends.  I understand we have to be corrected, but that is not what I’m referring to here.  Criticism can come in a way that helps you grow OR it can come in a way it makes you want to quit, give up and hate the person who gave it to you.   Eeek! –hate is so ugly.  So, I’m not ranting.  I’m just stating facts.

It all boils down to this:

when you are trying to help someone improve by giving them the honest truth in criticism they need…JUST BE NICE.

Real talk!

I saw this and thought AND said YES!
There are so many excuses out there today. Just admit you are the reason you are the way you are. Yes, you may of had a not so good childhood and things and people in your path didn’t take care of you, hurt you or abandoned you…BUT THEY ARE NOT YOU. You make decisions. If you are MEAN—it’s because you choose to be. THE END.

This is so true!
