I appreciated the encouraging responses and emails about yesterday’s post. And, I still stand behind the power of our thoughts and words. But, when I finally crawled into bed last night and let the quiet and stillness take over, I began hearing the question, “What about me?” ring in my head.
What about my friend whose husband left her and their daughter?
What about the son grieving the loss of his mother?
What about the hurtful things being said about her?
What about the judgments being made against him?
What about the children who go to bed hungry every night?
So, I wanted to clarify.
If you have faced, or are facing a difficult situation, it does not necessarily mean you attracted it by your own thoughts or words. We do live in a world where bad things certainly happen. And, by no means, do we attract these things. And, our hearts should definitely be open and ready to comfort the brokenhearted.
The negative thoughts and words I was referring to are those that cause us to have a defeated mentality about life….
Words that judge the actions of others….
Words that are the antithesis of God’s promises of life and future for you.
Thoughts that bind you in fear.
Thoughts that hold you captive.
Thoughts that prevent you from believing that you are who God says you are and not who people say you are.
Maybe this is what you took away from it. Or, maybe, you asked, “But what about my circumstances?” Since, I will be held accountable for every word I type, I wanted to have a softer approach to words and thoughts. Especially, as it relates to people going through difficult situations that they didn’t ask for. So, if you were one who felt slighted or hurt by yesterday’s post, then I ask for your forgiveness. Because, I have endured difficult circumstances. And, I want you to feel loved through yours.
Now, that I got that off of my chest, let’s all go have an awesome Wednesday.
I love you all!

Anyone who knows you, knew the heart which reflected your words. If someone had to ask, “What about me” they really don’t know that you speak His word.
That’s exactly how I took it.
We do not attract ALL the hard, hurtful, unjustifiable moments that we face, we do some, and when we do, we KNOW it…but….we ALL can attract the strength, the power, the grace, the ultimate support to get through ALL the hard, hurtful and unjustifiable moments in our lives. So Grasshopper, you were “RIGHT ON” with both your blogs. It never hurts to make sure what we say or write is not misunderstood. Love you BIG!!
