So … right after I got done expressing myself in my Open Letter to Black Home Business Owners, I come across “The Fight with Frustration” From Bishop T.D. Jakes.
It was, literally right on time…..
So here we have it – the real frustration fighter – prayer. Speaking to ‘the rock’ – Going inside and simply, letting it work itself out. Really? I can absolutely see how this would relieve the stress that is easy to arise; due to how frustration works; because … of the Investment, that Bishop Jakes speaks on on the first part, of the message. … about Speaking to the Rock; while Feeding the People.
The Frustration fighter, is to VENT it to Jesus; not to the person we are upset with.
Simply, to “go to the Rock” …. here’s Part 2, which really brings it home.
(quick note, some of this WAS in part 1; hey it’s how they cut these videos right? Taped live from TV to you via YouTube – Listen)
Regardless of what your spiritual beliefs are you have to admit the ‘timing’ is incredible. Right as I finish sharing my frustration with my own people – and our inability to work together, using a model that would create real freedom financially for all involved – I see this. A sermon on … patience. A message about dealing with ignorant people, who murmur and doubt, and question.
See, I’m not here to ‘push’ my ideas on you but I will comment on the remarkable timing of this message; Quick Screen shot evidence too …
This blog is set up to post on my wall when I publish new content; So you see the Open Letter to Black Home Business owners there (2 hours) – and you see, almost immediately (as I just said) – I shared a link from TD Jakes; which was right there on my Timeline.
“When you are frustrated with people you love, the conflict is overwhelming” – Bishop T.D. Jakes
Please listen to that Video above to UNDERSTAND The context of that quote – as he speaks loudly about how people Don’t know anything about Leadership; the Reality is, God will use anyone – ANYONE – Even someone you may not ‘think’ would be called to lead; and because the people have such a hard time recognizing who’s ‘called to lead’ … they murmur …
“Long as the manna was falling He was cool – When people get frustrated with the leader, they murmur against him. ”
Interesting too how this message seems to …. Speak to why even “I” had to express myself; because, “Frustration Has to Express itself” —– I love how in this sermon he talks about how God commands Moses to speak to the rock; but instead – with Frustration; speaks to the people.
Gotta love the Message. I love how just as I get done expressing my frustration, to the people, about the people, about my own people – a Timely message floats my way;
Back to this message though from Bishop Jakes… about he real frustration fighter, clearly this message was For me; and as Bishop explains … “I had a right to be frustrated, I have invested in it ….. If the Stock market crashes and You have no investment, Do you care? No you do not – but when you INVEST you now have Expectation…. and when people do not Deliver on what you expect; Frustration is natural”
… Perhaps, I should’ve spoke to the Rock 🙂
Perhaps some of you, reading this now, perhaps you relate to another spiritual energy – some other supernatural force; a creator – a master teacher – whomever you believe in; even if it’s just the ‘law of attraction’ that you feel is real – Look at it, in action …
Perhaps if you too are frustrated – Perhaps this message is for you too! Perhaps that’s what ‘drew’ you to it …. Perhaps like those who practice yoga, or those who meditate, have had it right all along – the answer is to go to that ‘still quiet place’ – To go “inside” – to get silent and just ‘allow’ things to work themselves out –
Listen to a strong message from Mr. Robert Fraser as he speaks about that in this video –
Sometimes we Absolutely do need to just “let go and Let God” —- Or simply LET things happen on their own; ignore the ‘situations’ (which may include People!!) that frustrate us. Perhaps if we simply, UNPLUG and go drink a ‘spoofy drink on the beach‘ – Things will unfold, while we’re on that break.
Then go back at it … As Mr. Fraser says – I remembered watching this video (and commenting on it) a month or so ago; and funny how it just came back to me; funny how it fits in – But, that is usually how it works.
If you’re FIGHTING with Frustration; My hope is that these messages – fit together right on time, for you – wherever you are – whenever you read this. Together, let’s speak to the rock; (instead of the people), even though we have the right to be frustrated due to all the time, love, money, and care we have invested … – unplug and let these situations work themselves out; knowing they will – because, they already have.
We are simply working to arrive at that moment.
Here’s to the Journey ….
