Embrace The Pain

Dear Royal,
 Don’t look for those that are in your life to make you feel sufficient or whole. Often we rely on friends, classmates or even family to have our back or come to our aide in rough times but when they don’t meet the expectation, where does that leave us? I’ve learned to expect another human to be a human, imperfect, flawed, able to do only the ability of a human and not fulfill the role of what only God can do. If we place an individual in a position were we believe they can never hurt us or should never hurt us that is our first mistake.

There may be times in life where you will feel what God requires you to do is causing pain and you may even question his love for you. If God who created the heavens and the earth, all knowing, all seeing, all powerful says that you will experience pain in the process of building with him, why do we believe natural relationships should be without pain?

However, there are some situations where the other party is careless and we need to walk away, but I am speaking about those personality flaws and unintentional things that we are too prideful to face. Sometimes a simple conversation to gain understanding can resolve it all. A way of helping to move past that pride is to look at the times where you may have hurt someone but it was not intentional. The same way you would expect to be treated in your flaws respond that way to others when it comes to their flaws.

There maybe people who do not want to hear you out or already have their mind made up about who you are or who you use to be. Don’t let that distract you or steer you away from what God is telling you to do, do not become your oppressor. Forgive quickly and let go of things others have done to hurt you. Have a open heart and a pure perception of others intentions when mistakes happen. You are not doing this because of the relationship, the friendship or anything to do with who they are to you, you are doing it because of who God is to you! God has called us to forgive in order to be forgiven, and it is important that you are obedient. He does not expect you to do everything right, he expects you to be humble admit your wrong and respond with love, compassion and hold no grudge. Being obedient to God can bring an abundance of peace, levels of success people will not understand and favor in so many situations. Ever wonder why some people are very successful and everything they do seems to prosper? Psalms 1:3 says “He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers”. 

 When you are as firm on Gods word as the tree planted by the streams, you will continue to prosper. He will grant favor in everything you do. Your purpose is to prosper!

Life is about reaping the promises of God and in order to do that we must be obedient to his word. 

Your Purpose

                  Be You •Be True •Be Royal

                                 Be Prosperous
