There are people out there whose only goal is to humiliate you. They can’t live with themselves, so they have to put you down to feel better about themselves.
For sweet guys like me who thinks everyone ought to encourage each other, these people are a drag. I’m learning to keep praising Jesus in spite of others’ efforts to pull me down. After all, it’s only Jesus that’s worth working for.
I’m learning to stop looking to man, to hope only on Jesus. As they say, man will let you down every time. I pick up a lot of energy from friends. But when friends turn into feeding frenzy, it’s time to call off the friendship and remember that I’m in this only for my Lord and Savior.
I’m sorry, did my back break your knife?
I don’t know how to become impervious to pain. I only want to learn to focus more on the one who died for me and less on the one who would kill me.
I absolutely love this post! I just wrote something similar to this! I am going through a domestic violence case as well as a custody case. My ex humiliated me like no other and he will never admit to abusing me in all manners, but I do know that I have Jesus on my side. It hurts knowing someone you love and care about treated you wrong, but I am thankful for every nice person out there. He thinks he can use my blog against me because I talked about what I went through, but I look at it as I am helping others. So many people stay because they fear what may happen, but I am a firm believer in getting help, crying out, and helping others. 🙂
Sometimes it is good to remember the last walk that Jesus took. As He walked, He blessed those that hurt Him.
amen. help me Jesus
This touched me so much that I decided to post about it in my other blog, today I can with God. If you would like to see it, it is also reblogged on my main blog titled “Hurtful People”. I had wanted to get back to you to let you know that in commenting I was inspired 🙂
So.. thank you!
thank you thannk you thank you
u r so kind
🙂 I appreciate your thanks, but the post I wrote (inspired by our comments) can only be thanked to God.. He has been urging me to write this for a while. I had wanted to write these devotions and have them published but a) I would never have the confidence to even research publishing nevermind seeing a publisher and b) God just nudged me to “put this out there” as there are so many that suffer from depression, anxiety, etc. If my posts touch your heart, then trust that it is through His hands reaching out to you in love 🙂
My fav line: “I’m sorry, did my back break your knife?” And you are right of course. Jesus is the only one that truly matters.
Praying with you.
So true! You have my prayers.
Only those who endure to the end will be saved. Positivity might be the means in which you endure. 🙂
Help me, Jesus, to be positive!
For I have been crucified with Christ. . . .I die daily. . .I’m already dead, so no one can kill the flesh of my body until God says so. And the worst thing that can happen after that is that I’ll be in heaven. Win/win 🙂
Absolutely true and absolutely relate 100%. It’s that daily struggle! Thank you for sharing this and thank you of the reminder!
No weapon formed…shall stand! Hang in there, my friend.
