The scripture that has changed my life and set me on the road to true transformation. This is that scripture; Romans 1:28 “And because they did not think it worthwhile to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them over to a worthwhile mind to do what is morally wrong.” (NIV). If I continue down the path of my flesh, my sinful desires..the thoughts of sinful desires. If I “exchange the truth of God for the lie”(v.26 NKJ), He will hand me over to a worthless..worthless..depraved mind. I came from the pit, I wallowed in the pit, I was dead in the pit, I can’t go back. I won’t go back. I want my God, I need and long for my Jesus. I will remain in His word, in His house, in His very presence. The one scripture changed my life.

Went into a store today to check out fabrics and an employee walked towards and as I smiled she gave me a smile that didn’t really scream cheery. Then when I asked how are you, do you know what the response was? Nothing..nada..not a sound came out of her. Then she sort of turned her head with sort of an apathetic look. I know I’m no one famous and not her friend,but we don’t have to be blood sisters to speak to each other. Was it apathy or insecurity? What keeps us from just being cordial to each other..and where did customer service go? I’m praying for an overflow of kindess and love. Praying for us to keep the savor in our salt and our lights bright. Lord, strengthen us to share your love and not become or remain complacent. I think with more love, more respect, more caring, there’ll be a lot less stress , sickness and folks hurting each other. Lord, help me not to contribute to any unrest, but spread your love. I hope you’ll agree with me.

One of my biggest pet peeves is people patronizing me. I don’t understand it at all. What do they think I’m gonna do if they tell me the truth without filler, or beating around the bush, or making up excuses. What do they think I’m gonna do other than appreciate their honesty and maintain respect for them. The world would be a much better place if we stop bs-ing ourselves and each other. We should be straight with each other, without being brutal, of course. I think there would be fewer misunderstandings.
