With such nagging she prodded him day after day until he was sick to death of it.
Place people into categories. Separate yourself from the drama. You may not be able to control elements of life and what people do or say, but you can control in what capacity and how often you interact with these people. You can dictate how a conversation will go with a negative person by simply shutting them down when the venom flows from their mouth, and then remove yourself from the situation. Tell them to contact you when their mind and heart is right.
The time and energy you invest in negative people (and resolving nothing) could be better spent focusing on what God has planned for you. Just like positive energy waves, negative energy waves can latch on to you, and drain and eat away at you like a disease.
Welcome this new month. See it as a fresh start. It’s Day One…now do something positive in your life and lovingly put those energy-drainers in their rightful place.
Father I pray for peace and joy in my life that I might come home to an environment free of drama, nagging, guilt trips, and negativity. I may have to deal with the drama of the ‘world’ outside of my home, but while in my home and while dealing with family and loved ones I should not be subjected to the negativities of the ‘world’.
Father touch the heart of those who enter my environment and those who contact me- that they be warmed and softened enough that they bite their tongue and refrain from trying to make me a part of their drama. Father touch my heart that I lovingly refuse to deal with the drama, nagging, guilt trips, and negativity and instead turn to You for comfort. Be my buffer Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
