Have you ever been hurt before, especially by someone you love?
When someone hurts us, speaks lies, cheats, steals, tears us down, twists our words, gossips, spreads evil, rejects us, stomps our heart, abuses, spews vile poison against us – we have a choice in how we react.
Let me repeat that; WE HAVE A CHOICE IN HOW WE REACT!
We can take their poison and drink it, fill ourselves up with that poison and become poisonous like them, or we can reject the poison, refuse to receive it, refuse to ingest it and instead we canCHOOSE to WALK in LOVE!
“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.” Proverbs 10:12
Now I’m not saying we agree with what they’ve done, I’m not saying we allow them to continue to hurt us, or even continue in a relationship with them. I’m just saying, DON’T DRINK THEIR POISON!
Don’t let their poison steal your peace and joy.
Don’t let their poison control your thoughts, moods and life anymore!
PRAY AND THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK!
Pray,Walk away and keep God’s peace.
“The joy of the Lord is my strength.” Nehemiah 8:10
We give out what we are filled up with. If we are filled with toxic poison, that’s what we will give out.
If we are filled up with God’s Love, Peace and Joy then that is what we will give out.
WHAT ARE YOU FILLING UP ON?
If you are filling up on their poison, then that is what you’ll become.
If you are filling up on God’s Word of truth, love, joy and peace, then that is what you will become.
Once again, IT’S A CHOICE!
WE CHOOSE WHAT WE BECOME. For good or evil, blessing or curse, we have the ability to change the atmosphere by our response and behavior.
The Lord knows the truth about everything that happened, let Him handle it.
Forgive those that hurt you. Give them over to the Lord. Let it go.
God will take care of you and cause your justice to shine like the noonday sun!
HOW WILL YOU CHOOSE TO RESPOND WHEN SOMEONE HURTS YOU WITH THEIR POISON?
DON’T ALLOW SOMEONE ELSE’S POISON TO POISON YOU!
“Keep your conduct among the Gentiles (unbelievers) honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the way of visitation.” 1 Peter 2:12
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and share the Good News!
