WHEW!!! WHAT A DAY, folks!!! I awoke in a struggle between Satan wanting me to be annoyed…with “COMPLAINERS” and God commanding me to love them. :/ The tug-of-war in “JILL’S WORLD” continued for awhile this morning, folks, resulting in the previous post titled, “THE MISSION FIELD”. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
And that little-ole’ tug-of-war between being annoyed with “COMPLAINERS” versus loving them continued on into the car with me as I drove my“SELF” to work this morning. BAM!!! Those tears QUICKLY STUNG both eyes, folks!!! Coming out of NOwhere!!! And forming steady rivers of tears down BOTH cheeks. WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!! How can that be??? I surely was NOT crying…yet the tears flowed so smoothly. Effortlessly. Almost emotion-LESS-ly. Hhhmmm….”TEARS-FROM-HEAVEN,” perhaps. It sure was kinda strange, folks…
UNTIL…I realized that this awareness of my increasing compassion for complainers here recently is somehow related to my acceptance of the “ME”…???…???…???…I used to be. 🙁 An argumentative “COMPLAINER” about ANYthing and EVERYthing. This new-found awareness resulted in the following FB post shared with my “FRIENDS” on 9/23/17:
“Hhhmmm…God is giving me “COMPASSION FOR COMPLAINERS”. Thank-You, Jesus!!! But “OUCH”!!! This sudden “compassion” I feel is ALSO a reminder that I have been the BIGGEST complainer throughout my “LIFE”. Especially during my bruised and battered childhood. I just didn’t “SEE” it for what it was back then… 🙁
Yep, I could ALWAYS find what was wrong…INSTEAD of searching for what may have been right.
🙁 —-> 🙂 My frown is now a smile…as I thank God for giving me “COMPASSION FOR COMPLAINERS”…especially my”SELF”.
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”
AND NO FURTHER WORDS ARE NECESSARY…THE END.
