🎭 Mask of Gentleness/Sweetness - Part 1 Intro
#AuthenticLiving series ✨✨✨
We may be wearing the mask of gentleness/sweetness when we may appear nice and sweet but inside you’re harbouring resentment even to the person you may be talking to!
We are like a sweet n’ sour dish sometimes. It’s very easy to pretend to be sweet and nice even though deep down you are bitter and cynical. Society shapes us this way, as we try to play different parts. But God really knows our hearts.
Have you ever heard the word schmoozing? My husband Bill taught me that word. Schmoozing is when you use flattery or compliments towards others in order to attain positive affirmation or results. 😏😏😏
Schmoozing is different from encouraging. Schmoozing involves self-seeking and self ambition for positive gain. It is like sugar-coating our words. They are NOT the truth.
For example, you say “I just love your top!” (but really you don’t love it, but you just want to say something positive). 😉😉😉
Encouraging compliments helps edify and build up others to be better for God. It is sincere and you mean what you say.
Schmoozing is like being a “big charmer”; it’s fine to use when you are only joking and playing around with your spouse or your close friends, but it becomes a dangerous tool that aids in sin when you do it for the purpose of receiving something.
This is especially dangerous in this addicted affirmation social media generation. We must be careful not to “morph” into posting and commenting on other posts just to gain followers and not really providing true encouragement and support to others with no conditions attached. ⁉️”Honestly, let’s ask ourselves have I recently said something just to gain affirmation for myself?” 🙏🏻”Lord, where can I can hide from Your Spirit? You know I can lie to people but I cannot lie to You. Create in me a pure and sincere heart like You. Help me to encourage and affirm others as Jesus Christ does. Let my words and actions be unconditional and sincerely helping others as You have gifted me to do.”

Let go and let God.
May mga bagay na mahirap talagang bitawan. Mga bagay na naging bahagi na ng ating buhay. Mga tao na natutunan na nating mahalin ng sobra at mga alaalang di natin kayang kalimutan. Ang tooo, sa ayaw natin at sa hindi, dumadating ang panahon na kailangan natin silang iwan, o kaya naman tayo ang naiiwan. Mga pagkakataon na para bang si Lord mismo ang kumikilos at nagsasabi na "Anak, hindi ito ang para sa'yo," o "Hindi pa ito ang tamang oras." Mahirap magtiwala. Mahirap maniwala. Bilang tao gusto natin ng kasiguraduhan. Gusto natin na dun tayo sa di tayo iiwan o sa di tayo masasaktan. Alam kasi natin yung pakiramdam na mawalan. Pero ito ang hamon ng Diyos sa bawat isa sa atin sa araw-araw- ang matutong magtiwala sa plano niya. Ang matutuhang pahalagahan ang pagtitiwala sa kanya, higit sa sarili nating pang-unawa. Ang maniwalang hawak niya ang lahat at wala siyang ibang gusto kundi ang maging masaya tayo. Maging masaya hindi sa sarili nating pamamaraan kundi sa Kanyang kalooban.
Trust God. Mga salitang napakadaling sabihin pero ang pagsasabuhay, nakadepende na sa bawat isa sa atin. Let go and to let God. May we allow His beautiful plan to be realized in our lives.
Masakit pero maniwala at magtiwala sa regalong siguradong higit pa sa kung ano man ang hinihingi niyang kapalit.
Stop waiting for a man to come save you, Jesus has.
Stop waiting for a man to 'give you life', Jesus has.
Stop waiting for a man to make you feel worthy, Jesus has.
Stop waiting for a man to give your life a meaning, Jesus has.
Knowing what Jesus has done for you, who you are and what you have in Him, makes the difference, it helps you live and enjoy the life you have now, even if it doesn't include 'the man' yet.
