WHAT IS GOING ON???

Post by Angelwings on Tue Dec 06, 2011 10:47 am

Just curious if anyone knows what I'm talking about here?

I feel like I'm on a roller coaster ride with people in my life. I feel UP if I am not associating with my family and facebook friends. I feel DOWN when I do associate with them.
I see a lot of division going on too. I feel like I'm in a great place in MY life right now. I am so happy, I'm having fun and its only when I share my excitement that I feel disconnected from everyone. It's like someone busting my bubble. I think it's because everyone else I know is going through hard times and they CAN'T be happy with me..??
So I try to be sensitive and reach out to everyone by sharing encouraging words or just saying "I'm thinking and praying for you" because I want everyone to be happy. It breaks my heart to see people in pain and sad. But I feel a real strong disconnect with them....they are not appreciative. does anyone know what I'm talking about?

The enemy is up to NO GOOD, let me tell you!! Here I am feeling victorious and everyone who I would expect to be shouting with me is shutting me out. what is up with that??
On a side note.....the Lord is on my side. I feel His presence with me all the time!!

Hello


And you are correct


I'm going to be honest, even as I read that I got a little miffed.


My Godly advice to you is just to keep your happy exploits to yourself as much as you can help it.


Because yes, it only hurts those who are hurting even MORE and we are NUMEROUS...and it makes them want to drag you down.

I'm sorry....you feel miffed by my happiness? Or by the people I'm referring to?
And sorry again, I don't want to insult you.....but I can't take your advice on keeping my happiness to myself!

If I know someone is hurting...than I know how to act and contain myself in an appropriate way. My first response would be THEIR needs, that's Godly advice that my mother taught me.
Other than that, if someone approaches me and I am in a good mood, and I'm happy....that's what they will see and hear.

Romans 12:12
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

James 1:2
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,

Philippians 4:4
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.

And I apologize if you misunderstood the context of my post. There are a few members on here who are familiar with my life and what I've been going through and I expect they will understand what I'm speaking about.
thanks

I guess discernment is what I will pray for....but I continue to rejoice in the presence of the Lord!
Sometimes its difficult to know what people are going through when they don't share their troubles. I guess my concern is with the amount of people who are not happy. and the surprise I receive when I'm met with negative feedback. Something is definitely up.
It's heartbreaking!
thanks D!!!

Hi, Angelwings -

I think you should share the good things that God is doing in your life. We're supposed to speak of all the God had done! Yeah, there's an appropriate way to go about it, and I'm sure you are doing so. People need to see and hear that God is moving in the lives of his children...especially if you're experiencing a turnaround from difficult times! How else will they make the connection that it's God who's lifted you up? :)

-Mark

Thanks D...yes with social media its understandable. Not a huge fan of using it, but when I do my goal is to use it for good.
Thanks Mark, I wish I can show u all what I'm talking about but its not possible. But I agree with...thats my point exactly

Makes me smile to know you in da swing of things!! lol! always enjoy your sayings.

I strongly feel it is just like the enemy to try to stifle our blessings and joy from the Lord in someway, whether with circumstances or people. I understand I should be careful who I share things with. I learned that lesson a long time ago.
I just really sense something else ....it's attitude, envy, jealousy, you know! And its coming from angles I have NEVER seen.
anyway, just wanted to share cause I know something is up and I'm not blind.can see

Hi Angelwings,
I think those who truly know the heart of our Lord will rejoice no matter what is going on in their lives. I personally do not remember when I felt down or depressed last time. It does not mean that in the natural everything in my life is the way I want it. Far from it. But now that I know the Lord and His Heart toward me, the feeling of hopelesness is gone forever!!!
So I don't know why you should keep your happiness to yourself. It's a gift for us from our Lord and it's meant to be shared. The Bible says "Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house" (Mat. 5:15). If I was miserable and did not have any hope I'd be so happy if someone whose life was turned around to the best shared the good news with me!

God bless!!!

i may have misunderstood your first post.


are you saying that you have simply been sharing your positive testimony of what God is doing in your life only to get a NEGATIVE reaction out of people?


whatever the case may be, it's human nature for people to feel a degree of jealousy and a slew of other bad emotions when someone ELSE shares such information about themself.


not saying it's right, just that IT HAPPENS.


keep that in mind and walk in forgiveness.


I'm sorry....you feel miffed by my happiness?


yes, for a split second it bothered me.

I know how you feel and often its like we struggle so hard to finally be on that mountain top, and when we get there we're so happy!! But it seems when we're on the mountain everyone else is in the valley. I think the devil tries to make us feel guilty and steal our joy. But the Lord blesses us so we can remind others of His goodness. I think this is the purpose of it. Don't let anyone steal your joy, if they are bitter because of your victory, they've just forgotten about the Lord's faithfullness and it's our job to remind them. Cheering

We have all had our fair share of up and downs Im sure...but it truly takes maturity to rejoice when others are blessed and it seems we are going through something at the time. Not everyone is able to do this...so it may be a struggle to be around these people when times are good. For me, my struggle would be walking in understanding and compassion towards them...knowing they just aren't at that place with the Lord to rejoice with you yet. Im sure that the Lord can use you to encourage them and lift them up though. I love what Laura said about God blessing us so that we can remind others of His goodness. I will remember that saying!! I am SO happy for you angelwings!!! Our God is SO GOOD!! :hooray: Just my two cents, but I would also limit the amount of time spend with 'bubble poppers'... lol! . I would go in for as long as I possibly could to lift them up and encourage them. If you start getting to bogged down...come back up for fresh air and recoup (get built back up in God). Just my thoughts...


Ephesians 2:8,9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Ah...knew you all would understand. Thanks for the great advice...I needed it.

I have a very close friend who was going through a nasty divorce when I was in the world and I myself was depressed at that time. Although she struggled emotionally....she rejoiced in the Lord always and depended solely on Him. She was a big part of my coming back to the Lord. Talk about a gift from the Lord, she needed me at that time but yet her faith and joy In the Lord was so bright

I love this that you say here! I am sure you are encouraging others in the same way right now.
