Consider the Lilies..: Wear them well..

Wear them well..

"When you are blessed, the haters come out.  When you step up to a new level, the backbiters show up.  When you wear God's blessings well, don't be surprised if it draws jealousy out on people.
But we have got to get to a point where we say not arrogantly but in all humility:
'I'm gonna wear God's blessings well in spite of who doesn't like it.  I'm gonna take this promotion in spite of who gets jealous.  I'm gonna wear this beautiful material blessing in spite of who is envious.  I'm gonna drive this beautiful new car in spite of who criticizes.  I'm gonna move into this nicer neighborhood in spite of who judges me'
Life is way too short to worry about what everybody thinks.  If friends get jealous, judge you, and are critical; you need some new friends.  Because true friends celebrate you.  True friends encourage and cheer you on.  True friends are happy when you succeed.
Don't let anyone make you feel guilty for the favor, the honor, the peace, the victory that God has given you. Don't hide the gifts and blessings that God gave you.  Always wear your blessings well.

  3. Hey Ren! Love your new blog...it looks great my friend! One of the translations of the word "blessed" is to be envied! They can't envy us, UNTIL we're blessed! They go hand in hand...the more we're blessed, the more we're envied and the more we're envied, the more blessed we are! Ha, love it Ren!;-) Thanks for sharing my friend...have a BLESSED week! ;-)
