I am not a child. I haven’t been a child for a long time now, but I still deal with a big bad bully ( well this person thinks he/she is big and bad) who always waits out to catch me doing something he/she doesn’t like.
I said the most powerful words I think I’ve ever said: ” There is nothing you can do that will take away my Joy. You can try and try, but I am happy and content with my life.”
I think this was more for me than for this person. I use to let this person terrorize my life. I use to get angry and flustered every time this person bothered me. I would cry and wonder why this person is in my life.
However, this statement made me realize that the joy of God exceeds ALL circumstances. Not only financial or health circumstances but ALL circumstances. A joy that helps me focus on what’s more important : being proactive.
Self pity, depression, anything and everything JUST because of someone else is giving them power over you.
Neither do you stoop to a bully’s mentally. Remember you are a Child of God and he/she is as well.
This is something God is showing me and for many years I was bullied by all kinds of people.
Stand up to your bully with grace, class and a confidence that only comes from Christ. No one has the right to take away what God has given you, but if you sit back and allow them to take it away, you will have no one to blame but yourself.
