When did we forget?

     These past few months my eyes have seen and my ears
have heard very disturbing things.  I see families torn apart.  I
 hear people talking bad about others.  Most of these are
people who are suppose to be in the church.  How are we
supposed to be the salt and light of Christ when we are just
like the world around us?  When did we forget that we are
supposed to imitate Christ?  How did we forget that our peace
 and joy comes from Christ not from those around us? 

People are flesh and have selfish desires it is all about us.
  We are suppose to die to ourselves daily, take up our cross
and follow Him.  My heart cries out why do we continue to do

 this to ourselves and to others around us.  Paul wrote this in
Philippians 4: 6-7 "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, you’re your
requests be known to God, which surpasses all
understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through
Christ Jesus."  Then he goes on telling us the things, that
which we should meditate on.  It is NOT they hurt my feelings
, they said something bad about me, or they said something
that was true about me and I did not want to hear it.  How
about how we let our minds think that people are talking
about us, come on what have we become.  So, this is what he
says" Finally, brethren whatever things are true, whatever
things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things
are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things  are of
good report, if there is any virtue, and if there is anything
praiseworthy meditate on these things.  The things which you
 saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you." 
 We are overcomers in Christ.  We should walk in victory and

 bear the fruit of Christ, which is "Love, Peace, Joy, Patience,

or long- suffering, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness,

Faithfulness, Self-Control."  Galatians 5:22 There is only

one person that gives us all of the things and His

name is Jesus Christ.  Your husband, children, family, and
friends cannot provide these things for you.  It is our own
responsibility to seek God first.
