being lead

I’ve been thinking about a lot of things about how God is working on me, in me, and through me. I think some basic lessons we learn are the same, love first and always. That’s a given.

Some people do not have a temper, some do. God deals with accordingly. The ‘hot tamale’ may have to learn to chill a little, while the ‘cool cucumber’ may have to stick up for themselves a little more.

Me, I’ve got the whole ‘take in accordance my time, please’ thing going on. I’ve got a lot going on in my life, mostly because I’m organized, but even I run out of time, even though we are all allotted the same amount…

God is also working on me because we’ve all got our battles to fight, not all the same as me, and I’ve got to remember that maybe some people are trying to be better organized, and if I give a little grace and maybe a little guidance, it will help them and help me, depending on how I approach it. If I can help them, and keep my temper means that I get to take the knowledge I have and help others, and I don’t have to say I’m sorry for losing my temper.

I think that’s why my flesh and my spirit are fighting over calling out the liars. Because I want to do it, meaning my flesh, and my spirit knows that I am not equipped, yet, to do it without being offensive. So I’m praying for Holy Spirit leading in this and all situation.

Psalm 139:4 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting



Hey Friend:)
I think the true biblical heartbeat is discipleship and "as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another..." This is the spirit of teaching and also being teachable- not reacting, but coming alongside in a true effort to help one another be more like Jesus...those are just my thoughts:)

Tis true that it's difficult to hold our tongue when we want to blast someone or something. But it's oh so wise to do so.

The Dorband family has given such good advice ... but I'll send you a hug and pray you can become a cool cucumber now and again;) ... keeps the blood pressure lower .. and we all know you can stick up for yourself ... so no worry there. You always share such profound thoughts here, Margie ... hugs ..
