Assistance for you

I've come to the conclusion from personal matters that people always want you to take care of them in various ways, and give them things, but some REFUSE to help you to take care of your household. I had a lady that I thought that I was friends with for about 5+ years, talk very nasty to me because I was trying to offer her something for free. No payment due AT ALL….totally free. She turned me down as though I was offering her a free hit of crack. I made a video that I wanted her to watch and critique for me and she got it all wrong and said she watched it before and told me to 'quit asking her' which is not what I wanted to do in the first place. I thought that I could get an honest opinion out of her of what she thought about my take on a certain subject. 

What gets me is the fact that for years, I signed up with her on her whirlwind events and thoughts and ideas. I even drank some kind of shake that she had sent to my house. It could have been poison but I trusted and used it …. once. Afterwards, she tells me that I would have to pay $49 a month to be in the program. I refused. 

What about you? Have you ever had people treat you as though you were bothering their precious privacy and all you wanted to do was to bless them?

Let me present Karatbars to you

Baruch Atah Adonai!

Help!

I went to a laundrymat today and the lady that works there is a sweet lady. Her husband died 3 years ago and she misses him badly. 
She found out that I was a preacher and she always asks me questions when I am there. I told her something today that comforted her 
and she hugged me and kissed me three times. Of course, I now smell like her perfume. Lol. 

Problem, she was so grateful that at some point, when I took my clothes out of the dryer, she reached down to help me fold them. 
YIKES! I am the type to do my own clothes. I don't like people doing my clothes for me, especially my undies. I fanned my hands as 
nicely as I could and said, "Oh! I'll do that! Thank you!" 

Was I being mean? I feel so bad. :/

Compassion.

People are drawn to you according to your compassion with others. Jesus was known for His compassion. Many times in the bible it is written about how He was moved to compassion. 

Compassion for the Multitude: Matt 9:36, 14:14 and 15:32

Matthew 14:14
   And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

Could it be that some aren't getting healed of their illnesses due to the lack of compassion of the one who is allegedly praying for them? Do we carry titles but no power behind them? In days and times like these, we should know when to cut a joke and when to be serious. Today, everybody wants to be a comedian and crack jokes to the expense of others. If we stop the jokes about them, people will get healed. If the sick multitude came to you would you believe God for their healing or crack a joke and laugh at them and write them off?

**********

Compassion for the unfortunate: Matthew 20:34

Matthew 20:34
 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Are others blind because their leaders are? 

***********

Compassion for Jerusalem: Matthew 23:37
Matthew 23:37-39
37  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. 

Have we gotten to the point where we are serving 'favorites' instead of accepting all whom God has sent to us? Some of us are rebuking the true prophets and welcoming the tare because the tare have better clothes, purses, shoes, houses, cars, and bank accounts. Have we gotten so worldly that we look like the World anymore and cannot recognize it within our own souls? True believers can. We are still attempting to separate. There are no 'elites' in the Body of Christ. 

1 Corinthians 12:20  But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

***************

Compassion for the Leper. Mark 1:41


Mark 1:41-42
41  And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

Are people omitted from various activities because of their appearance? Have we written them off because they don't have 'creamy' skin, or full, white teeth? Does their age bother you? #Partiality  If we are partial, we will only receive partial. #HalfGlassMentality

****************

Compassion for the Bereaved. Luke 7:13, John 11:35


Luke 7:13-16
13  And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.

Do we have so much compassion on the bereaved that we take out the time to let God have His way? Or do we preach, sing, bury them and "call-it-a-day"? 

It is all about compassion. We should all do a compassion-check now and then. To be a follower of Christ we must be like Christ. 

compassion |kəmˈpaSHən|
noun
sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others: the victims should be treated with compassion.
ORIGIN Middle English: via Old French from ecclesiastical Latin compassio(n-), from compati 'suffer with.'

You sir/maam are out of order.

You sir/maam, are out of order

I didn’t want to say anything about this subject but it has to be addressed. Have you ever attended a company, school, church, group or organization and they just knew that they know all that there is to know about you and years have gone by but they still act like they own you? Did you ever feel bombarded by a group of people who take up on each other’s side and not yours? Everything that you say has to be brought through them to make your words imperative or valid? There is a group of people that I was associated with years ago, and, I love them in Christ but my God, I really wish that they would stop dogging me online and judging everything that I say and write. It’s really getting old. When I voice my opinion on something, one will “call me out” on it and nearly embarrass me publicly, and if I maintain my convictions on a subject and let them know it, another “friend” will come on to “press” the issue against me “in love” as Christians always say. It is nerve-wracking because I am not going to bow to someone else’s opinion just because they don’t like mine.
They don’t know it but it is very noticeable. I’ve actually had people come to me or message me online saying, “What’ up with that ______ crowd? Why are they on you so bad like that?” I honestly don’t know how to answer them. Maybe I made them upset at some point while I was associated with them and they aren’t man or woman enough to let me know. Ya think? I wish that I knew. Then, there are the ones who were ‘higher up’ in rank at this certain place, therefore they treat me as though I was their child or student.
I feel great right now, I am not mad or anything but I cannot take it anymore. Have you ever gotten to the point where you just want to start getting belligerent with someone because they are to you? That’s where I am at. I am so close to stepping out in my flesh and talking dozens to them as though I were in the street. Lol. As a minister of our Most High God, it is hard sometimes to maintain your cool. You have to double-think your actions at all times or the devil will use it against you. I know that some of you may or may not like President Obama but do you remember when the media tried all that they could to make him a “mad-black man”? The man held his cool. They dogged his spirituality. He held his cool. They talked about his mama, he held his cool. They talked about his daddy, grandpap and grandma. He held his cool. They (media) talked about his birth certificate. He held his cool. Then the Jeremiah Wright conversation came up. He denounced his relationship with the man to please the crowd …… and still kept his cool. I think Rev. Jeremiah Wright understood. To this day, I think that they may still be friends to a certain degree. I mentioned all of that, not because I am an Obamaian, because I do not agree with some of the things that he has done, then again, I am not in his shoes either.  I personally could NEVER run a country as great as America. Plus, I don’t want to gray too fast. My hair is gray enough now. I said all of that because I feel like he may have felt during his struggle just to become the first black President of the United States. There was always opposition for the man! I feel the same. There is always someone trying to correct me on how I feel, what I say or comment even on Facebook. Look, I am going to be me until Jesus comes back. I will not change how I talk, walk, live or write. I want to tell these ‘chastising spirits’ … “you be you and I’ll continue to be me.”
There was an old song that my grandmother used to listen to as she sipped on a nice glass of Lambrusco and crocheted. It was called, “Sweep around your own front door before you try to sweep around mine.” Yea, I remember that song clearly. This is what these people need to do and leave my business alone. Treat me nice or leave me alone. I will not go around, walking on eggshells to please these people, being afraid that they may not like what I post online. I refuse. As the Archangel Michael said to the Devil when he was arguing with Michael over the body of Moses……”The Lord rebuke thee.” Jude 9.
God bless and thanks for ‘listening’. ~ Essie

God should mean more

Being a believer is not just saying God's name, mentioning Him, but serving Him with your life as well. Are you a 'mentioner' or a 'server'?
