day 70 – like it is

In thoughts on God on November 3, 2011 at 12:33 am

i am not to compare myself to others.

i am not to use my speech to manipulate others around me so i am happy with

myself,

them,

my control of my life,

and mastery of understanding, my position before God, or my own will.

i am not to please everyone, or be worried if they are not pleased with me.

i am not to worry myself with the opinions of others, striving to please them or for them to not find me

annoying

inconvenient

or any of a number of other things.

i am not to be concerned about being charming, impressive, beautiful, or enthralling, but to have a gentle and quiet spirit.

i am not to be concerned about the thoughts of man (to fear man), but the thoughts of God (to fear God)

this puts Him in His rightful place of Lord in and of my life.

i am to let my adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious – 1 Peter 3:4

this puts Him in His rightful place of Lord in and of my life.

further:

I am to have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. I am NOT to repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, to bless, for to this I was called, that I may obtain a blessing. – 1 Peter 3:8

Jesus!
