How to clear your judgement

Anger and resentment is deadly

Having clear judgement helps us make right decisions as we go about our daily lives. That is our free will to make decisions and getting angry and resentful is also part of life . Things may not go as you planned it or as you want it to be and it is natural to get angry and upset.

Do you know when you get upset your mind is so clogged up there is nothing you can’t do? Some people after they commit a crime cannot figure out what happened. Even people they love so much they would destroy them and not recognize at that point in time what is happening. Some people are so angry that the person they pass their anger on may not necessarily be the person they are angry with, it just happened that that is the first person who crossed their path after the anger built up. They may also be angry with themselves and the anger just keeps building up and you cross their path and bam, as they say ‘all hell break lose’.

So how do you deal with this anger and resentment that has built up inside of you. You can get upset then move on, no tantrums, no yelling, screaming or punching because you recognize that you have to change how you look at things.

Acting out that anger is a different issue. When you are angry such that you want to knock the person you are angry with off the map, or wish that they were dead or some awful thing happens to them then there is a huge problem.

The first thing is any violent action towards the person not only hurts or destroys that person which of course you want to do, but also hurts and destroys you. It mat hurt your reputation, your character and if it reaches the authorities chances are your entire life could be affected. Not only your life but that of your family, and this is huge if you have children.

The second thing is that if you continue to hold this anger it destroys not only your reputation but your body. It is like a form of darkness, a virus or parasite eating you up inside when you see or hear about that person , you relive the entire situation. The nervous system starts to go haywire, you cannot think clearly, your head feels like it is bursting, soon all sorts of illnesses start to show up.

It is not an easy thing to get rid of or even reduce anger and resentment. Some suggestions that help me:

  • take time out for yourself;
  • take time to cry, worry, punch some punching bags but put a deadline on this then move on;
  • break down the issue – what about it caused you to be angry? Is it true or not true. If it is true what can you do about it? If it is not true then forget it and move on;
  • have you realized that the person you are so angry with is going about their life happy as ever and you are there fuming with anger;
  • do you have the guts to be the better person and apologize first, even if you were wrong? Two wrongs do not make a right;
  • seek guidance and counsel. Find a life coach.
  • remember we are all connected, the same God who made that person made you. There would always be some disagreement, but there is forgiveness. If God can forgive you what is keeping you from forgiving the other person.

Forgiveness is so hard to do but it is a choice, you see anything that is good for us sometimes shows up as hard work. We believe that we have the right to strike back when someone tells us something that is hurtful or when they do something to us that is hurtful, but this is so far from the truth. We are a better person when we forgive. Forgiveness and love changes everything. Try it, you maybe surprised.


God does not sleep

Have you ever heard the comment ‘God does not sleep’?

I Heard this from my Mom when I was growing up and even as an adult. When things happen she would say do not worry God may wear pajamas but “God does not sleep’.

This saying is so true.

Now I have never really paid attention to this comment until recently. One night lying in bed it dawned on me that we all breathe the same air, it is one world and the breath is God’s breath. Now, I have read and heard that God is omnipresent on more than one occasions but as the saying goes it went through one and ear and straight out of the other ear.

If God is omnipresent and in my country it is night and in another country it is day , how could God sleep if he promised to be with us always. So there is wisdom in what my Mom used to say. God rest her soul.

At one time it did flash across my mind that God maybe sleeping because I was praying very late in the night , but now I am more comfortable to praying and asking for help anytime, any where because I know he hears me. I feel now that it is not that he is sleeping but I maybe sleeping and missing out on all his blessings. You should try asking for help. There is nothing he does not know about you. Ask him to forgive you and help you. The great thing about this is that you could also ask for help for other people – your family, friends etc.

There are so many instances recorded in the Bible and also current examples where people have received help for themselves and the persons they have prayed for. I am not saying that all your prayers would be answered because God is the only one who knows what plans he has for you or for the persons who you are praying for. All I am saying is to ask him.


What is your choice?

There are always choices to make in life, every second, every minute, every day. We cannot get away from it.

It is amazing though that with life there is no sitting on the fence you have to make a choice. I grew up thinking there was grey but as I get older there is really no grey, it is either white or black, light or darkness. However you want to put it, say it or think about it.

Whatever decisions you make daily can take you closer to life or to death. Although we all have to die someday but I am referring to eternal life.

If your image is like mine God is always good and is totally for abundant life then the idea is to try to make the right choices.

This can be very tricky because we go about our day’s activities without pondering or stopping to decide how to make our choices. So life has many tricks and this is one of them, it is your decision because of your free will but God is always there with open arms. Being such a loving father he would never turn his back on you. I can be very indecisive at times but knowing that God is always there for me is a huge comfort.

I have to remember though that Satan tactics are lies and deceit so I have to constantly be on the look out for ways he is using to lead me astray.

I continue to pray that God would guide me in all that I do and I pray the same for you.


People hear what they want to hear

Most people hear what they want to hear. This allows them to avoid difficult truths, not knowing that by recognizing these truths they can take action to correct whatever difficulty there is and live a better life.

What truth that you do not want to hear or that you shove under the carpet? You have been struggling with your life but do not realize that your mother or father went through the same struggles, your Uncle or Aunt had the same issue. Even some family members before them had the same issue. I guess you would say this is coincidence . Have you ever wondered why this is happening to your family? Certainly all these things cannot be genetic. If you would like to learn more about this leave a comment and we would get back to you.

You want to hear the good and nice things but on the side you are frustrated to the max. Take a good look at what you are trying to achieve – where is it leading to? Who would benefit?

Help is always there and comes in various means but sometimes you may have sonblock – Jesus Christ can’t help because you have blocked him off. To get to the good things you have to hear the bad – you have to hear what’s wrong with your life or your family life, and you must want to change.

Lies and more lies

Have you been telling yourself you are not good enough, you are not worthy or loved, or God would not forgive you. Things just not going right. You are not lucky.

These are lies. Luck has nothing to do with your life.

Stop and take look at the things that have happened. What decision did you have to make for this to happen? Was it your decision? Did someone put a gun to your head and say do this or that? Think about it – you have freewill. God would not interfere with that unless you come to him. He is there waiting to help you.

No – you decided that this is what you wanted to do and you went ahead with it. We all make mistakes, wrong decisions – maybe costly decisions, may even change the direction for where we want to go in life.

The thing is that Satan always wants you to believe that God was the one responsible for getting you to make those decisions, and now he is getting you to believe that because of those decisions you are not good enough or worthy enough . These are all lies.

Why would God want you to struggle and why does he want to torment you? If he is your Father and is good and merciful – ask yourself – why is he doing these things to me?

God is loving, generous , compassionate and merciful – he want the best for you. He can take all your mistakes and turn them into something good. All you need to do say is – Lord Jesus I am sorry for all the things I have done, please come into my life, help me, heal me and fill me with your presence.

Then everyday start thanking God for all the things you are grateful for and see what happens.


What is your past saying?

Have you ever wondered why you had to go through all those bad experiences .

What was God trying to tell me? Should I be more patient, have more compassion, be more generous.?

Your past is there to develop you – show you the way, but sometimes it is as though we have been blind folded and we do not see all the lessons to be learnt. Instead we see pain, anger, frustration, envy.


Take a good look at your past and try to uncover what you should have learnt? See where you are right now. If those past experiences did not happen where would you be? Can you thank your past for getting you to where you are now.

Life is short, don’t dwell on the past, uncover the learnings and move on.

What would happen if you can have the life that you have always wanted?

Your race🚌🚙🚗🚕😃😀

There is a race mark out for you. The road has already been determined , but the only way to reach your destination is to take the road that God has marked for you . This is for you alone.

No matter what route we choose once we believe in God he would guide us to the right road.

We already have all we need for this race so we need to be open so God could reveal the road.

No tricks just an open mind and heart and God would do the rest.

Allow God’s love to fill your heart and life!

Can you lift or encourage someone this week?

We all need encouragement, but I believe that we must first give encouragement in order to  get.

This week ask God to help you lift or encourage someone and see how that feels.  You see God does not need anything from us but we must help each other. Different circumstances come to us so we can exercise our skills – faith, love, patience etc.

 

Whatever comes out of us must be clean and helpful to others. It is the same way we like others to say clean and helpful things to us. After all we are all connected so we must treat each other with respect and we must be humble. Humility is recognizing that God is the one responsible for our skills and abilities. We get everything from him all the titles and awards  you did not do these on your own.  When we think more highly of ourselves, we place others at a lower level , but we are all one.  There is one God. We can’t do anything without God. When we are humble we are lifted up so pray to be humble. I have been praying to have fear of the Lord and it is amazing the difference this makes in my life.

May you find strength in being humble.

You are not alone. Someone is there.

You are not alone. Someone is there.

When you are going through your storm it helps to know that someone is there. Sometimes we forget and try to do things our way, thinking that we can have everything or be successful on our own, and when things go wrong we want to know what happened.  I love this video, take a look, listen to the end and let me know what you think: IMG_8723
