PICK YOUR POISON

OUCH!!!  “LIFE IS DIFFICULT!!!”  For everybody.  Everywhere.  There are so many man-made rules on top of man-made rules regarding EVERY SINGLE facet of “LIFE”.  Aaahhhhhh!!!  AND…many of the new rules contradict or compromise old rules making LIFE… even M-O-R-E difficult!!!

“PICK YOUR POISON,” folks.  We are all sinners.  EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!  I, personally, get so tied up in knots about daily decisions I MUST make KNOWING…that I am “bending” some rule…some where as I strive to give the BEST of myself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day.  Aaahhhhhh!!!  “I”…PICK MY POISON…DAILY!!!  And then I seek His forgiveness, accordingly.

“LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks!!!  My “BEST”…can be pretty “BAD” some days.  I often feel as though I’m just NOT good enough.  I make selfish decisions…for “ME”.  I take short-cuts to get my “SELF” where I need to be.  I am NOT proud of my “SELF” for cutting certain corners, or bending the rules, in order to get “ME” where I need to be according to others’ set standards.

God forgives, folks.  He forgives me.  He forgives you.  He will forgive anybody for anything ONCE the decision is made…to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  AMEN.  WOO-WHOOOOOO, folks!!!  “I HAVE DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS.  NO TURNING BACK.  NO TURNING BACK.”  (Pppsssttt…Yep, I’m singing that song inside my own self’s head…RIGHT NOW!!!DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! 

I just “HOPE” that we ALL try and remember that NOBODY knows EVERYTHING…about ANYTHING!!!  And yes, that includes our “SELVES”!!!  (Pppsssttt…I need to remind my “SELF” of this DAILY.)  We ALL make choices based on a knowledge of something or a set of circumstances that others are NOT privy to.

TRY…to remain optimistic and positive regarding teammates’ decisions.  And PLEASE… offer your “HELP,” in a loving manner, if you feel compelled to do so, but do NOT judge a situation you know little about.  The ONLY thing you can be sure of is that most decisions are made in less-than-perfect situations. And remember:

GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
