How to Create Division in Your Relationships

How to create DIVISION in your relationships:
1. Be offended easily.
2. Dwell on your wounds ( & who caused them) regularly.
3. Push away any conviction God gives to love people.
4. Question all authorities in your life.
5. After questioning your authorities, share your grievances with others . (also known as campaigning.)
6. Embrace the joy of gossip.
7. DO NOT ask God for a humble heart or forgiving spirit. Most importantly, do not ask God to change you!
8. Lessen your time in the Word.
9. Actively believe your personal happiness is most important in all relationships.
10. Turn away from the power Jesus offers you to create peace & truly love people.

Talking to Yourself

What if we actively believed this? What if we lived each day knowing His completed work has been poured into us by faith? Many believers strictly identify themselves as “broken” “depressed” “anxious” “no good” or “unloveable”. It’s human nature to call to mind our wounds instead of meditating on His wounds. He exchanges His complete victory for our incomplete faith. Colossians 1 & 2 is saturated with the identity of Christ. Today, we can end critical self-talk with one little phrase “I am complete in Him!” #jesus #complete #speaktruth #colossians

Sandblasted?

My friend @ann_huffines gave me this great reminder . Notice the pearl is sitting on a piece of sandpaper. There’s practically no way to miss this message: A pearl is only shiny after it’s been refined, sandblasted, & polished to its designed purpose. Beauty only comes with exfoliation. Are you going thru some sandblasting? Take heart-your trial is not designed to harm you but to help you. Ask God to help you. He wants the world to see you the way He does-complete & beautiful! #pearl #refinery #pain#hope #god #flashthosepearlywhites ❤️ — with Ann Gray Huffines.
