Hands held high in spite of the pain

hands held highThere 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.

  1. 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. πŸ™‚

  2. Sometimes it is good to remember the last walk that Jesus took. As He walked, He blessed those that hurt Him.

  3. 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.

  4. Praying with you.

  5. So true! You have my prayers.

  6. Only those who endure to the end will be saved. Positivity might be the means in which you endure. πŸ™‚

  7. 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 πŸ™‚

  8. Absolutely true and absolutely relate 100%. It’s that daily struggle! Thank you for sharing this and thank you of the reminder!

  9. No weapon formed…shall stand! Hang in there, my friend.
