and, (humbly/willingly), some of us “treat” our acne, eh?! 🙂
(aka practical application of Biblical wisdom, etc. self-discipline through daily study, meditation, prayer, progressive personal application.)
an imperfect observation by me: some teens/adults have acne issues…(growing pains par for the course) what about our individual “spiritual” growth?…cannot give up in the process…reaching onward progressing toward maturity. 🙂
Thank You:) for Reading …in case it isn’t obvious:
i am NO hula hooper. 😉 lol
An imperfect observation by me: i can be “fussy” at times myself…we all have our preferences, and moody/ier days, eh?:)
however…i try to be forgiving and considerate of Others’, their feelings, etc. and cooperate within a healthy reasonable spectrum…to keep the peace. And, we all have our limitations and consciences. i know, personally, couldn’t demand/insist on Anyone breaking their conscience in some matter micro or macro…(on my behalf).
We all have our individual thresholds for being comfortable and uncomfortable. I respect that.
Some of us (perhaps sick? unreasonable? fierce? ignorant? too proud?) people are impossible/beyond pleasing; You “kindly” jump through one or two hoops, in good faith, then they unmercilessly require series of hoops and jumps…unending.
gimme a break…”not open to any agreement” is a negative trait interestingly described 2 Timothy 3:1-5: (my highlights)
But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal,3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness,4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,5 having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.
So, just want to encourage any Reader:) do Your Best. Trying to Please (some) People is futile! I am no people pleaser.
I’ve found it much easier and conscience healing to please Yahweh–God of True LOVE…by trying to be forgiving, loving, giving, and genuinely-compassionate to all crossing my path…and not overly-critical, harsh and i.m.p.o.s.s.i.b.l.e. to make comfortable/happy/pleased.
questions for self-reflections:
Am i hard to make comfortable? Do i have unrealistic expectations?
am i hurting so much that i am hurting Others? Am i reasonable in my dealings with Others?
do i show fellow-feeling? and agape love/respect to all my fellow-life?
BTW: this is an honest/TRUTH FULL piece of prose..(my blog/this site) is NOT a work of fiction. i am a LEGIT person, with a LEGIT name, though Joan Winifred…i use as my “pen” name, which is my “actual” first two names given me by my parents, (what were they thinking, eh?:)
I am a female…born. I am a Mother…real since ’99, ’01, ’03, ’05 (4 offspring; 1 boy, 3 girls–vaginal births; married since ’91 to Chato/Father of said offspring). Soon to be 50. I am a legit work in progress. 🙂 Very spiritually minded. My Primary Loyalty Yahweh; meaning i love everyone else less than True God of bible revealed name Yahweh/Jehovah. (My “True” Friends accept this unreservedly about me.) And I Love Humans A VERY LOT!! which try to demonstrate by living genuine-unselfish-compassion everyday toward all life even—when very difficult— involving self-sacrifice and pain!! Favorite Books–Bible.
Learner of Fun and relaxation…and Mandarin among other languages.
Legit: Boring. Not a Quitter. Lover of Truth; Pursuer of Peace and Living Moderation in most things except study and love!:)
may be those are not humble self-descriptions, huh?
anyway trying my best…”hammering” things out…🙂 lol
Encouraging reading today:
He will not judge by what appears to his eyes, nor reprove simply according to what his ears hear. He will judge the lowly with fairness, and with uprightness he will give reproof.—Isa. 11:3, 4.
Jehovah preserved the Law covenant for us in his Word, the Bible. He wants us, not to obsess over the details of the Law, but to discern and apply its “weightier matters,” the lofty principles that underpin its commandments. (Matt. 23:23) The Mosaic Law reflected a “framework of the knowledge and of the truth” about Jehovah and his righteous principles. (Rom. 2:20) The cities of refuge, for example, teach […] how to “judge with true justice,” and they teach all of us how to “deal with one another in loyal love and mercy.” (Zech. 7:9) [excerpted Imitate Jehovah’s Justice & Mercy w 2017]
