one false word or just an imagined thought of a person can change a whole perspective of you. They do not know you, but just based it on their judgement and thinking upon what they can see and it makes them feel good that your actions equates to their right judgements or thoughts with "insufficient" or "sufficient" facts or evidence altogether. It does not bother them as long as what they see and say is agreed by another party! This is the sound of gossip.
What does the bible say about a reckless mouth, a wayward tougue or a lying voice? Turn to James chapter 3...
1 My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. 2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Indeed,[a] we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things.
See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. 7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. 8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh.[b
i am never into gossips but it got to me. Without my permission, without my approval it came and grabbed me. It cause many misunderstandings that will lead me into further misunderstandings with other people down the line of relative friends I have in YCKSS. In spiritual perspective I think the minions of our Mr SA TAN are working hard against me as I made many friends that given their trust to me. I am not going to let them down and in fact I would want them to be successful even at their age.
I don't care if they are mischievious
I don't care if they are in express, NA or NT
I don't care what background they are from
I just want to be friends with all and tell them life can be better no matter who they are
that they can live with a sunshine in their life
that they can be successful though what is surrounding them tells them otherwise
that they can be responsible at their age
that they can lead their peers into greater heights with their given potential
they can, because I did it!
so all gossips and rumors can hit me and have me become something else that it isn't me. But it isn't going to change my position and stand where God wants me to be. I will remain truthful and without deceit because of the new life that Jesus has gievn to me. He has given me the hope that I will not let go. I need to tell this hope to younger people no matter and it will be through great friendships.
I pray against the reckless tongue and untrue things said about me. I am going to be truthful and stay pure. Perhaps it is a sign for me to settle down as well. I cannot stay single...what a statement i am making? what am i to do?
Blessed am I to be able to focus and have no strings attached for now...clear my mind HS for you are the compass of my soul and the deliverer or my hard times :)
Onwards a revival within YCKSS
