Sometimes I feel as if everyone that I encounter is against me. At times I feel bullied. There are also times that I feel lonely, depressed, and crazy because I spend several hours a day in difficult and often hostile environment. No matter what I face I am praying for peace and patience. I no longer give negative people or situations the power to discourage or diminish me. Until today I allowed the thoughts, actions, and energies of others impact what I believed and felt about myself. Starting today I choose to honor myself enough to live in positive energy. Anyone who seeks to kill my joy is an enemy- I pray for my enemies because I feel sorry for them. I feel sorry that they spend their energy trying to knock me down instead of building themselves up. No weapon formed against me has ever prospered; none of them ever will. I am more than a conqueror because I do not allow small minds, small people, or small actions keep me from the big plans that the universe has in-store for my life and my ministry. It is well with my soul. So be it and so it is!
