Suck it Up!!
Suck it Up!!
Sep 13, 2013
Every endeavor you encounter on a daily basis is going to be met with acceptance or resistance. No matter how hard you try, you are not going to meet people's expectations, or make everyone happy. Who you can make happy even if you fail, is the Heavenly Father.
He sees past your physical faults and sees into your heart and soul. Our Father looks back....... only to see if we are following where He leads.
(John 10:27) "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me;
If you base your relationships of those you meet through your walk in life on whether they can always please you or meet your needs in order for you to be happy....you'll be waiting a long time.
If you want to be happy, then make yourself happy. Don't depend on others for your happiness, or your need to feel needed and for their approval. Take more focus in doing things that make the Heavenly Father happy and glorified. Don't let anyone take your joy away!! Don't let others control your emotions or feelings! They are YOURS and not theirs!
Do you feel they are losing sleep over you being mad or annoyed at them??
Do you think that by you being upset and giving them the silent treatment it is going to tear up their world?
Do you honestly feel that you are punishing them, or making them feel bad because you feel you have been wronged, or they are not doing what YOU expect them to do to make you happy???
Got news for you....you may as well suck it up sweet heart.... because the only person you are hurting is yourself. You might as well get over yourself and start living up to Gods expectations instead of the expectations of others!
Harsh words aye??? I thought so as well...... But one day God spoke with His authority to me and told me to, "SUCK IT UP AND GET OVER YOURSELF!!" (Steel toed boots time!)
It is not up to my husband to make me happy, or my children, or my friends or the church. It is up to ME to make me happy! And I realized that it was not up to them to change for me, but me to change for them!
When I prayed it was about how I wanted God to change them to fit MY needs and how they needed to make ME happy by changing their ways.
God threw on the brakes of my train and brought it to a screeching halt and said very distinctly, "This isn't about them! It's about you! You are making yourself miserable because you THINK I am going to change them to fit you! What you need to be asking Me is how I am going to change YOU to fit ME! When YOU change to fit My purpose for you, you will find happiness through ME! So quit praying for me to change them and talk to Me about what I can do to change you!" (God had just placed me in a reality check!!)
SOOOO...when I got down and prayed, instead of praying for God to change them, I started praying for God to change ME!
Things started happening.... let me tell you....it was NOT over night!! We are a work in progress for God. But the work in progress is something that takes place daily and with diligence and perserverance. We have got to change for ourselves and for God! Those that love you and cherish you will see the change in you...over time. Do I still make people unhappy and pissed at me? Yep!
Am I losing sleep over it? Nope!
As long as in my heart I am doing what God has asked me to do, and I do it in favor of my Lord and Master and by His authority and will.... I guess the best thing I can say with all humor and in sincere love and respects to my fellow man is... "Best suck it up sweet heart and get over yourself!"
Be Relentless in your pursuit of pleasing God and doing His will and less of the will of those outside your christian walk.
Be Relentless in your prayers and in serving Him.
Be Relentless in finding happiness through our Heavenly Father instead of looking for others to make you happy or for their approval or disapproval.
Search me, God, and know my heart;test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
