Should be praying. Not been, so... on, the holy and healthy habit for a while. A post to preach (at me). A therapeutic move, seeking to settle what's necessary and deal with the distress.
Sorry and sad about the state of someone and a message in all this from God:
Never compare, except on occasion, to be grateful. "There but for the grace of God go I" etc.
Plus: Turn concern -- for whoever/whenever -- into compassion. Force into a position of prayer. Shake up and wake up.
Slammed open the Bible and spot Isaiah 22. The perfect sum up of what's what in context.
On comparing: One of the shocking words from God is about judging others. The call to use justice and discern stands but how, this and not 'that', and blanket and bold "don't"?
Without qualification. OK, get the... and you will not be judged. A kind of risk assessment at the cost back, among people, let alone God. Tend though to think better living requirements is to STOP doing mental judge-nastics.
One of the changes the modern techno-era has brought is being all judgy and out there about it. Talk about fed and modelled. The TV/Net has bludgeoned us into following the judge train. Get on it, or lack the balls and backbone of the supposed inspiring ones in our midst.
"Need to be assertive" in the competitive and animal-like world. It's all about abuse and need for boundaries. Victims and aggressors and so on.
We can trust God and all that, but...
Believe Jesus words are most applicable and pertinent about people and a connection. Some kind of contact, tenuous at that.
Ones we should face issues and be all about forgiveness and peace-with as far as possible.
(Without rabbitin' on and needing to get on/get off Plant a Seed).
Jesus judged... Yet, when and why... and how depended on a leading that we shouldn't use to excuse our dumb-ass behaviour. And without trying to scope any depths about -- know the word is don't bother/don't be a dick.
I.e. naggy, niggling, groan and moan, broken record whinging. The quiet but perverse satisfaction is sick. Not what -- and God's up for. Followers and disciples should cut it out.
What am driving at is the Illuminati-lots intention and projection is to have us DIY destroy. Never can emphasise too often:
Forget all the go-beyond-what-written about the dark realms. The certain true and baseline about devil/s and such, is they're condemners and deceivers. About all, we need to know. Where we ape and echo this, the -- call for now -- demonic influence-ers, are scoring goals.
A word to me eh: As soon as thinking turns crit. about... watch it and most oft. Stop It.
Oh yeah, the underlying message here is downer's an upper. Again, down as in humble and less need to build up through comparisons. What did Paul say? A paraphrase c/o 'The Message':
Don’t imagine us leaders to be something we aren’t. We are servants of Christ, not his masters. We are guides into God’s most sublime secrets, not security guards posted to protect them. The requirements for a good guide are reliability and accurate knowledge. It matters very little to me what you think of me, even less where I rank in popular opinion. I don’t even rank myself. Comparisons in these matters are pointless. I’m not aware of anything that would disqualify me from being a good guide for you, but that doesn’t mean much. The Master makes that judgment.
Way to go eh? Where to go. Face my crap and take what people bring to my attention. What's not healthy and wealthy is acting the big one and too superior to care. There is no room for getting up, on being down, on another.
