Death to My Poison “Pen”

Posted: June 24, 2021 in Uncategorized

One of the things that I get convicted of in the midst of a joyful ministry experience is I need to walk in joy. I look at the condition of our world and I get very concerned and to an extent, rightfully so, but the question is what will I do with that concern? It can be really easy for me to get out the poison pen and act as if sarcasm is a spiritual gift. It isn’t. God is good, Jesus is faithful and the joy of the Lord is my strength. The battle is the Lord’s and it doesn’t depend on me. I need to do away with my poison pen, preach truth and spread joy. The problems of the world do not reflect a problem with God. My God is strong and faithful and the solution to all the problems. Adding fuel to the fire does no good. Sarcasm is not a spiritual gift. My gifts and talents in the hands of God are the tools He has given me to make change. My poison pen has got to die and I positively need to stay positive.

How about you?
