Not Going to Do It !

Thinking that when a friend calls and wants you to do something, even if it's for your own good and it is NOT something you are planning on doing... And there is NO negotiation on this earth that is going to allow that to happen... It needs to be dropped there... And it was, so I am glad that she doesn't get pushy and she knows my limits on what I will do and NOT do...

I think there are some people in my life that is pushier than I am... But not in a bad way, it's more of a good thing... Like one of my friends was telling me that she is my voice of REASON, lol... OK, I guess that is something that I probably need right now... So she can stay in my life along with those that are more positive for me to be around...

Then what gets me are those who say they are friends, but are more so out for themselves... I have a few of them in my life and I think I need an eject button for them... Wouldn't that be nice... But then again if they are out for themselves only, are they really considered friends or are they just bad apples in my life... Oh well... I am going to shut my mouth and leave this topic alone...

Isn't it interesting that there are those in your life who have chosen you and there are those that you have chosen? The ones you have chosen are the genuine friends, while those who have chosen you are ones who see in you something they need or want and take it from you over and over again. Good writing!

Many times there are people that are in our lives that rub us the wrong way that God will use to bring some attitude that we have to the surface. Sometimes those that we have chosen will also meet some need that we have. Remember that God will put those in your life that will not compromise His word and will tell you the truth in love for your benefit and not because they just want to make you miserable. WE must learn to discern who is toxic and who is there because God has placed them there to be that iron that sharpens iron.
Many of those that we call friends who continue to use us without reciprocating are probably those who need to be cut off. Hard to do easy to say. I encourage you to take a look at how you feel when people you consider friends enter your life. This is a good gage to show what effect they have and how they influence the way you think of yourself.
Many of the things that I say to you are possibly very hard to take please understand that God has placed me into your life because I can say things to you because I truly want to see you walk in the favor of God and know Him in a more intimate way. Love ya Girl

I was asking God for something to help with this situation and was surprised when I opened the Bible to Jude and it was a light bulb... I don't think i eve did much with the book of Jude... But it was talking about Christians who have been taken over by deceivers, immorality, false teachers and destructive and will divide... And then how it ended with a call to persevere... Ughhh, that is a hard one... I think it's easier to just say "whatever"... I am writing a blog that is in the works about Jude and when it is edited to make sense, I am going to post it... I think i need to study this book more... It seems to have alot of my issues in it :) My spell correct catches most things, but it's not very good at unscrambling my brain...

Love ya too :)
