Good Monday Morning Coffee everyone☺️! How is everyone doing today! I hope wonderful. Welcome to a new day, a new week, and another new encouraging conversation with me, Kenya. So if you’re ready, then grab your yummy drink ☕️ and let’s start the conversation.
So, for today’s conversation I would like to discuss having a “Philippians 4:8” mindset. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things”. Sometimes I run into to people who just stay in an offended or victim mentality and it’s really a waste of there precious time.
There are many, many, many times in life, where people will offend you. They just won’t like you for no apparent reason. I run into people all the time who just have a negative outlook on life but I have to make sure that I don’t take it personal. When I run into confessing believers in Christ who constantly talk about how others don’t like them or how others are always talking bad about them and that is there constant conversation, I just feel turn off from the discussion. The reason being is because they are focusing so much on the what others are saying and doing (the offense and being offended) and making themselves out to be a victim. There are times where I will have to remind them that they are not victims but victors. Some months ago I wrote a blog post called “An Isolated Incident”. That post was basically explaining that someone else’s negative personality should not dictate my personality. The negative mindset has nothing to do with me and thus I should be able to think on the lovely and beautiful things.
As believers we don’t have to yield to the things of this world. We are already over-comers. The finish work of the cross has given us a hope that the world and those who are still yielding to darkness don’t. If anything we should be occupying our minds with our new life in Christ.
So to conclude, don’t allow anyone to make you feel like a victim. Don’t give Satan anymore mental space but focus on whatever is honorable, pure, commendable, excellent, praise worthy, and lovely. Basically focus on Jesus and what He is doing in your life today. Talk about those things.
Side Note: The Lord loves you so much and that should out weigh any negativity that may be trying to occupy your mind.
Monday Morning Coffee question: How has this discussion changed the way you see the negativity of others?
So remember to take it one day at a time, stay encouraged in the Lord, and remember that God loves you sooooo much, so remember to love Him back!
