21 Day Journey of Inspiration- Book Three of The Mind Renewal Series
Every so often you are pushed beyond your limits. Like an open wound, your faith and the ability to resist an emotional outburst, bleeds outward. It is during that moment when you must consider the outcome. If someone verbally attacked you or trespassed against you, should you step out of character and return the assault? Is it really worth it? Some people deal with psychological issues without the awareness of it. They have lived in a present condition for such a while that they’ve actually became immune to its effect on others. I have had dealings with people who yelled everything they said to someone, in a condescending way. They had no idea their speech was perceived like that. Once they became aware, they made the necessary adjustments to avoid offending others with their dialogue. We have to always take a close observation of our actions when dealing with others. So what if someone doesn’t like you? Everyone has an opinion and they may not agree with yours. Everyone is not going to like you. So, there is no need to display your frustration about someone through social media. The stronger man or woman would simply ignore all types of negativity. The Bible is our blueprint for life, and it was not created to use as a crutch to justify any ill-advised actions of retribution. Instead of jumping off the ledge of your comfort zone and acting out of character, return to your building of comfort and live on. One thing to remember is that God sees everything.
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grevious words stir up anger. Proverbs 15:1
Wrath defined is strong, stern, or fierce anger; deeply resentful indignation; vengeance or punishment as the consequence of anger.
Stop trying to be like someone else. Don’t covet another person’s life!
You were not created to live in SELF-DEFEAT. Don’t allow negative thoughts to beat upon you. If you stand there long enough, those thoughts will bury you in ANGUISH.
“You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.” Maya Angelou
Continue to Shine
Sometimes you have to continue your path without those who started off with you. Everyone has a journey to take in life. There may be similarities to another but yet it’s still an individual walk. Instead of trying to prove your worthiness, simply walk the path of righteousness and let your light continue to shine.

The Art of Giving
There are many ways to illustrate this particular title, but I’m not talking about the principle which governs monetary endowment. Instead, I’m speaking of the art in relation to giving or lending yourself as a help to others. This does not mean to parade around asking if anyone wants help, but rather being sensitive and coupled with compassion. You never know what a person is going through on a daily basis or the struggles they mentally battle.
Sometimes a kind word or a polite smile can bring forth the hidden potential within them and plant a seed of hope. When an individual is battling diverse trials, a few words of encouragement could be the very medicine they so desperately need. Those few seconds of encouragement could mean the difference between life and death. We must be sensitive to compassion and not blinded to foolery. Don’t allow the facial expression of people to alter your thought process. Many people hide behind a smile in hope that no one can see their pain. This person could easily be a family member or a very close friend. Be mindful of how we interact with one another and be ready to give the most precious thing you have.
It could mean the world to someone and rescue them from the snares of emotional turmoil.
