You don't have to take it...

When people pronounce negative words into your life, you don't have to take it...
You can't change what they say about you but you sure can control what goes into you...the choice is yours...
when you know who you are...(in Christ) and the fact that you're secure in His love...it really doesn't matter...
...As a matter of fact, that is their opinion and they are entitled to it...
In the scheme of what God thinks about you,it is a minute and inconsequential issue...Chin Up!!!



Saw one of my old journals and decided to put one of them up.... I guess different people have their reasons for journaling...I journal if I'm feeling low,very high,encouraged,inspired,motivated....in summary...I journal whenever,however,wherever....
...I was probably spoken to with a negative tone or I overheard some one use negative tones to talk to another...

But the truth is...the choice is yours...YOU really DON'T have to take it!!!

A curse that sticks on you, was provoked….. prov. 26:2

where Jesus is... Negative words will NEVER come to pass, but Prophesies of dry bones will live.

therefore, people can say whatever they want to say, but I Know that nothing they say will stick to me..

thanks for ths post.

True word! What determines who we are is not what people say!

I had a dose of that recently..thanks for sharing!

Just...Toluwa said...

Definitely! There is power in the tongue and when neg. words are said, one can reverse it.

And i can not be cursed if God has not cursed me!

Dots said...

You are right... the choice is always mine... it is difficult, very difficult at times... but it is always my choice!
Thanks for sharing these thoughts.

In the final analysis, it is never between you and anybody. It is between you and God. He should be your standard.

never allow someone saying negative things about you to have the final say even if you have to reject everything silently in your mind.

FFF said...

growing up, my dad said many hurtful things 2 all of us children. wen we gather together & recall it, we nearly feel like killing him. but i can tell u now, it was d desire 2 prove him dead-wrong dat made me d person i am today. if someone says mean things 2 do, it gets me down 4 a while, den i resolve 2 shut dem up!

True...very true.
It's up to you to accept or reject.

Jaycee said...

I usually "reject" negative statements...(it could even be from people I consider precious to me, yet if their statements do not seat right with me...I have learned to simply reject them, seriously!).

Love this journal post...:)

You right 'bout it. Everyone is one way or another related to this.

@Qmoney...the journals are safely kept where prying eyes won't have access to it!!!!:-)

@FFF...I am honestly proud of you!...some people hear hurtful words from their parents and allow it to shape their lives negatively(stumbling block)...you took the same hurtful words and made it a stepping stone for you...now that is what I call inspiring!!!

@Aphrodite...exactly!

@Jaycee...Yes o!!!...I do that as well...I don't care where or who the word is coming from...if it is not acceptable...I totally reject it...not necessarily verbally but I still reject it sha!

@ Laspapi...Thanks for stopping by my blog!

@Buttercup...way to go girl...hope you got my mail!

@Tommeh...true that...we all hear negative stuffs once in a while whether we like it or not...but the choice is still ours...to take or not to take..
