MY WICKED WAYS

OUCH!!!  The words I spoke to a teammate on Friday afternoon were deceitful, folks!!!  🙁  As Matthew 15:19 states:  “For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander.”  BAM!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I strongly desire to “HELP” people.  I struggle, however, with “HOW” to “HELP”.  My intentions are good, folks, but the methods of helping I employ are and have been deceitful (“EVIL”) in certain situations.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Yep, I used to be VERY confrontational.  I faced most things HEAD ON and would state my views DIRECTLY…RIGHT to your face!!!  BAM!!!  The direct approach, however, proved hurtful to ALL involved.  Even my “SELF”.  I consciously try NOT to confront folks directly these days, but this new indirect approach I am experimenting with seems equally as hurtful…  :/  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

EXAMPLE:  I recently tried to make an indirect point to one teammate by referencing a second teammate who was NOT even present during the conversation.  OUCH!!!  I “think” the point “MAY” have been received as intended, but I’m NOT sure.  I do know, however, that I DID throw this second teammate under the bus in order to make an indirect and controversial point to the teammate I was engaged in conversation with!!!  :/  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  “WHY, Jill???”  WHY???

Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned…AGAIN!!!  Please provide the RIGHT words for use in tomorrow’s apologies to my respected teammates.  AMEN.

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

MOVING MOUNTAINS…

@ Anastasia Baptist Church (ABC) here at the island campus in St. Augustine, FL!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Pastor Walter West was surely speaking DIRECTLY to “ME” tonight, folks!!!  This weekend’s service = “A Beginner’s Guide to Moving Mountains” as we continue in the series:  Mountain Tops.  BAM!!!  I’M A BEGINNER, folks!!!  And…

I LOVE MOUNTAINS!!!  It just-so-happens that “MOVING” them ranks pretty high on my “TO-DO” list, right along with “CLIMBING” them!!!  Yep, I’m thinking about “THE CLIMB” by Miley Cyrus…the motivational and spiritual song that inspired the development of this blogging venture here at numberoneteam.net back in 2013.  WHEW!!!  TIME SURE FLIES!!!

“LOVE”…IS IN THE AIR, folks!!!  It’s Valentine’s Day weekend, 2016!!!  How appropriate to focus on “LOVE” at church “THIS” weekend.  LOVE = GOD.  Did ya know that???  Yep and God = LOVE!!!

LOVE IS NOT AN OPTION…”IF” YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN.  We are called to “LOVE” like Jesus.  “LOVE” like God.  “LOVE.  LOVE.  LOVE.”  Our neighbors.  Our family/friends.  And our enemies.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I MUST admit I have difficulty every now-and-again loving certain teammates, but  “LOVING”…is NOT an option for Christians.  “WE LOVE” as Christians.  “THAT” is what we do!!!  “LOVE.”  EVERYBODY.  EVERYWHERE.  Knowing that ALL of us peeps are EXACTLY where we’re supposed to be…FOR NOW…as we “JOURNEY” through “LIFE” from HERE to THERE.  “LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks!!!  Can we PLEASE just try to “HELP” each other along the way???

1 Corinthians 13:13 tells us, “Three things will last forever- faith, hope, and love- and the greatest of these is love.”  BAM!!!  The Beatles had it RIGHT, folks:  “ALL WE NEED IS LOVE”.  😉

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