Hello dearies, how is the week going?
It’s a Thoughtful Tuesday and I’m glad because I get to share a quote with you.
Here we go…
“Don’t let people pull you into their storm, pull them into your peace”.
Have you realized that most often when you have friends or are around people who are negative minded, you end up becoming like them? ‘Cause all you hear, discus, think, plan is negative so gradually you become infected with the virus too.
It’s the same with being around people who are hurting and constantly feeding on their expired past!
If care is not taken, you trying to be a good friend, would be dragged into the situation as if it’s yours.
I wonder why humans are attracted more to negatives than positives, maybe because it’s easy to stay negative, or because of this basic instinct of sin in us our first option is always geared towards that…
My point exactly is that if the people you hang out with are always sad, you will be sad too and before you realize that sadness has taken over your life and you won’t even remember how to smile. This disease is a contagious one!
This is the reason why we are always advised to hang out with people who brings out the best in us and not the worst by constantly reminding us of our pasts by what they portray or keep saying.
Someone would say, I cannot watch my friends or family go through pains or difficult situations alone. What then must I do ?
Ofcourse you cannot do that but you cannot also afford to be pulled into the storm, you might get lost in it.
What you can do is to pull them rather into your peace.
It might be that you and that friend of yours are going through the same situation but your composure and way of handling it is totally different from hers because you’ve got the Jesus factor and that enables you to walk peacefully even in the storm.
I hope you are aware that Holy Spirit filled believers have got a well of peace situated in them, and it springs inside of them and overflows into whatever external situation on going and consequently calming all storms.
So from today make a conscious effort to let people get caught up in your web of peace rather than being pulled and getting lost in their storm.
Dear Ghanaian believer of our lord Jesus Christ , be an example of Christ in this season where GHANA is going to the polls, let people be caught up in the peace of God by being an epitome of peace wherever you find yourself…
People are always watching so be alert and conscious of your speech and actions.
