I usually do Friends Only Entries where I lock my journal and keep 90% of my entries only viewable to people who are saved on my friends list. HOWEVER, I got this email today and wanted to not only share it with my LJ friends, but also with everyone else who stops by.
Its pretty deep. Read it, think about it, and apply it to yourself and the people in your life.
Tell me what you think!
Title: "Everyone Can't Sit in Your Front Row"
Everyone can't sit on your front row. Life is a theatre so invite your audience carefully. Not everyone is spiritually or emotionally healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life what are best loved from a distance. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, OR atleast, minimize your timw with draining, negative, incompatible, pointness relationships, friendships. and fellowships.
Consider your current relationships.
Pay attention to who lifts and who leans.
Who encourages and who discourages?
Who is on the path of growth and who is going down fast?
When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse?
Who always has drama?
There more you seek God and Godly things, the more you seek quality. The more you seek not just the hand of God but the face of God, the more you seek things honorable. The more you seek growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you, the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the FRONT ROW and who should be moved to the BALCONY of your life.
You cannot change the people around you, BUT you can change the people YOU are around!
Ask God for wisdom and discernment and use these gifts to choose the people who sit in the front row of your life.
Let your haters be your motivators BUT let them do it from afar.
