Summary: The candle is designed to give itself for the light. The candle's worth is found in darker nights. Life is cruel, we must stay focused and forgive.
THE CANDLE IS FOR DARK PLACES?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
LIFE CAN BE SO CRUEL... IS ALL WE SPEAK NEGATIVE STUFF? ARE YOU A HOPE GIVER AT HOME?
A COMPUTER HAS WHAT EVER PROGRAMS YOU LOAD INTO IT.
A CD or DVD has what you burn into it.
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Proverbs 18:21 (MSG) Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit—you choose.
ARE WE FEEDING OUR FAMILY MENTAL BLOCKS? OUR KIDS ARE HUMANS.
Many REFUSE TO HEAR what I often hear children say:
• I hate myself.
• I hate my mom and dad?
• I am so stupid? I hate school?
• I wish I were dead?
• We seem to tear down self esteem, and then NEGATIVITY BECOMES SELF-PROTECTION.
• MAN'S BEST FRIEND IS THE DOG? It wags its tail not his tongue.
• OFTEN THE FAMILY DOG IS THE MOST LOVED THING IN THE FAMILY.
BECAUSE HE DOES NOT CRITICIZE AND COMPLAIN.
WE MUST HAVE SOMEONE BREAK THROUGH THE WALL OF DEATH TONGUES...
WE LIVE IN A CRITICAL AGE WHERE CRITICISM IS THE NORM?
Doe we realize a broken clock's hands are right at least twice a day.
Read Face book?
WILL BLOWING OUT ANOTHER PERSON'S CANDLE MAKE THE ROOM ANY BRIGHTER.
No one appreciates criticism as much as the person that is offering it.
Criticism is much like dynamite, it can blow up and do much damage... It should only be used by experts to help build.
It is easier to criticize a chicken than it is to lay an egg?
Those who can--- JUST DO IT. Those that can't --- CRITICIZE THOSE THAT TRY!
I CRUCIFIED A SOUL TODAY, I MURDERED IT WITH MY WORDS.
YOU SEE VOID NOW IS ONE TESTIMONY, MY TONGUE NAILED TO A TREE.
THE SIN OF TRIANGULATION...
TRANGULATION IS USING A THIRD PARTY TO TELL THE SCOOP...
PUBLIC CRITICISM IS IMPROPER AND SHOULD NEVER BE!
Matthew 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
CHANGE IS REAL...
Do we realize nothing stays the same? When I taught the sixth grade, the first science lesson was about change. The science lesson was very clear. Everything, absolutely everything is changing. Many had trouble accepting the change is a reality of living. I taught at Elk Knob Elementary School just out of Pennington Gap, Virginia. One year a student had been looking out the window at "THE KNOB." He replied I have never see that rock change. I went on to discuss that the hot sun? The cold freezing water? The storms? The Knob was changing! MOLECULAR CHANGE COMES ON A LEVEL THAT IS NOT VISIBLE TO THE EYES.
WHY NOT PREPARE FOR GOOD CHANGE?
CHANGE THE WORDS... JOSEPH SPOKE WORDS OF LOVE --- RELEASE THE PAST.
JOSEPH LIVE IN A VERY DYSFUNCTIONAL HOME. HIS FAMILY TREE HAD A FEW NUTS HANGING FROM THE BRANCHES.
JOSEPH WAS MOCKED, MISTREATED, THEY LAUGHED HIM TO SCORN.
Joseph was treated mean by his brothers. They physical hated him... 10 brothers REJECTED HIM...
Genesis 45:5 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.
Genesis 45:5 (MSG) But don't feel badly, don't blame yourselves for selling me. God was behind it. God sent me here ahead of you to save lives.
JOSEPH FORGAVE HIS BROTHERS. CHANGE!
JOSEPH ENCOURAGED AND SUSTAINED HIS WHOLE FAMILY.
Joseph could have sought REVENGE? But revenge belongs to God --- DO NOT STEAL.
JOSEPH SPOKE KINDS WORDS --- TIME HAD BROUGHT HEALING.
JOSEPH LOVED HIS BROTHERS AND TOOK CARE OF THEM.
TIME CAN BRING CHANGE FOR THE GOOD...WASH OFF & FORGIVE AND GO FORWARD, OR REMEMBER THE CRUEL PAST OF HURT AND PAIN?
TIME HAS MADE A CHANGE (Harkins Freye)
Time has made a change since my childhood days, Many of the loved ones have gone away.
Some I never more in this life shall see, time has made a change in me.
Time has made a change in the old home place, time has made a change in each smiling face.
And I know my friends can plainly see, time has made a change in me.
In my childhood days I was young and strong, I could climb the hillside all day long.
I am not the same as what I used to be, for time has made a change in me.
When I reach my home in that land somewhere, meet my friends and loved ones over there.
Free from pain and care I shall ever be, Since time has made a change in me.
