Confrontation can be such an ugly word, right? The reality is that while it may be uncomfortable, it doesn't always have to be bad and it is completely necessary for our growth.
If you find yourself in a situation where you think you may need to confront a person or issue try the following:
1. Take a Breath
If you are able to walk away and take a breath, then do so. Trust me, you will thank yourself for it later. We usually make mistakes when react from our emotions. If you are able to walk away and take moment, then do so.
2. Think about the Situation
Is this an issue that you need to confront or should you keep your mouth shut? I find that if a situation is keeping me up at night, then I confront it for my sanity. It doesn't matter who the person is, there is always a respectful way to handle a situation.
3. Make A Decision
Don't get stuck in the thinking stage. Take action. Once again, that may be that you speak to someone directly, or you CHOOSE to walk away. If you find that it is better to keep your mouth shut, then do that and be okay with your decision.
So, I had an amazing time on Atlanta Live! It was my very first ministry television experience and it was just awwwwwe-sooooome (Yes, I definitely sang that, lol).
If you're anything like me then you have been guilty of giving people too much power over your life. You know what I mean, we tell people too much of our visions and dreams and they walk around feeling as though they have the ability to tell you if your dream is important.
We often talk about putting on the whole armour of God, but we don’t really speak of the story behind it, there is a lot we can learn from it. Apostle Paul wrote Ephesians and was known as a world traveler. His story starts with him being a murderer of Christians, and later one of the greatest teachers of the times. Paul was arrested in Jerusalem after the Jews started a riot because of his presence there. He was accused of telling the Jews to break the law, speaking against the Temple, and defiling the area by bringing the Gentiles (Acts 21:28). This of course wasn’t true because Paul was a Jew (Acts 21:39), he walked with Jesus who was also a Jew and wouldn’t have attacked Him (John 4:9, Matthew 1:1-7, Hebrews 7:14) .
