Lips of my Mind

I have heard Joyce Meyer say when I am disappointed I must get re-appointed.

And disappointment, the state of being disappointed has been a prevalent theme in my meditations lately. And  when I read I Peter 2:1 this morning, the HOLY SPIRIT surprised me.

May I share it with you?

1 Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,

And there I stopped with the word slander as He began to teach me a new understanding of disappointed.

Slander. What does slander have to do with being disappointed? I didn’t much at first like what He had to say but I see it now and I’m grateful. 

You see slander has been to me something done openly, broadcasted for any one in earshot to hear. And I am not negating that – it still is. But this morning it is something more. It’s turning those things he/she does or does not do to meet my satisfaction over and over in my head and imagining their motives in the doing or not doing.  As if I could know their motives! And the more I ‘slander’ them within the walls of my mind, the more disappointed I am in them.

Ouch! and Thank you, ABBA.

But He was not done yet.

2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,
3 if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.

Oh, desiring the Word. And having tasted the kindness of the Lord.  Have I ever tasted His kindness! His kindnesses have been lavished upon me — every moment I breathe.  You too?

And then the final — the icing on the cake.

6  . . .

AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.”

There was that word: DISAPPOINTED!

Steadfast looking at my JESUS, keeping the Sweet Taste of Him on the ‘lips of my mind’ will keep me from slandering within and will mightily address my disappointments.

Thank you for stopping by — hope you were not disappointed. 🙂

Thank You, ABBA, for this Word this morning, You know I needed it! And I trust that others who need it will be exercised by it also. Thank You for hearing our prayers for others. There are many.  Thank You for answering us.  Amen and amen in JESUS Name.

I have brought these names before the LORD; hope you will as well. Click HERE for PFT.

In His Holiness alone,
