I had to make a conscious effort last week to not let other people steal my joy. I won’t allow people to make me mad knowing that they don’t care that I’m mad and the only person I’m hurting is my own peace.
I had a crappy week a few weeks ago and I really let it get to me. I was in a slump that whole week and for what? I was the only one keeping myself miserable. I woke up one morning and said “God, this is stupid! I’m finished letting others steal my joy!”
My sister told me that she was having a rough few days as well and her Pastor told her to stop eating other peoples poison. They don’t care at all that you’re mad, in fact, that’s what they want. Stop eating their poison and let it go.
I received my new Joyce Meyer Teaching for being a Partner and she talked exactly about this subject on her teaching! Divine indeed!
I’ve already deleted people off of my Facebook account who serve no purpose in my life anymore. My family, close friends, and God are the only true people I need in my life. I refuse to eat other peoples poison anymore. As we all know, life is too short. I will, however, continue to pray for those that aren’t part of my tribe. It’s what we should all do.
