Day 27: No More Pity Party


You are all INVITED to a

PITY PARTY.

Just bring your complaints.

Make a list of everything

that is going wrong in your life

and all the people who are or have wronged you

and everything that is going wrong in the world.

Oh what a PARTY we will have.

And when the PARTY is over

you get to leave the PARTY with a gift~

SELF PITY.

Would you want to come to my PARTY?

Actually you can have your own

PITY PARTY by yourself,

as sometimes it just happens without your knowing,

until you realize that you are

dressed with

SELF PITY~

Feeling sorry for oneself.

Victim mentality.

Defeatism.

Oh I have had many

PITY PARTIES,

and continue to have,

when I don't

INVITE JESUS.

And without

JESUS

hopelessness and helplessness are always the main guests.

How quickly I forget when

SELF PITY

gets the best of me

because

SELF PITY loves to make you the victim,

a prisoner to your own feelings, emotions, and circumstances.

because SELF takes center stage.

Oh how it takes only a second

to leave your own

PITY PARTY.

when your SELF gets uninvited,

because you have

INVITED JESUS

into your PITY PARTY.

And when you

PUT HIM IN YOUR STORY

your SELF has to leave

and it takes PITY with it

because

JESUS is a gentleman

and HE wants everything that keeps you bound to

SELF PITY~

"Give all your worries, _________* (Put your name) and cares to GOD,

for HE cares about you,_________*" (I Peter 5:7)

Oh how hopelessness turns into HOPE,

because when JESUS enters the room

you can't help but to take your eyes off of

your

BROKEN feelings

BROKEN circumstances

BROKEN relationships

because

JESUS turns all

BROKEN INTO BEAUTIFUL

so that you

BLOOM WHEREVER YOU ARE PLANTED~

"I, _________*, have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,

whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

I, _________*, can do all this through HIM who gives me strength" (Philippians 4:12-13).

So my friend

I am DIS~INVITING you to a

PITY PARTY

because

JESUS is

"IN THE HOUSE"
