Don't Waste Your Time.....by Diane Ogden


Don't waste your time responding to critics....

Sanballot and Geshem sent this message: "Come let us meet together..." But they were scheming to harm me, so I sent messengers to them with this reply. "I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?"
Nehemiah 6:2-3

Today I was at a clients home and read this passage from his desk calendar. It is from "Life's Little Instructions from the Bible. H. Jackson Brown Jr. I thought it to be brilliant. (Duh it was from the Bible)
Today, before leaving for work, someone called me and stuck a verbal knife into my life mind. I tried all the way to work to shake it off. I tried the advice of a friend who says to shake it off like a wet dog shakes off excess water. That nor was anything else working. The knife continually wedging away at the cells of my mind as it was anger not hurt. An hour of so passed and then I saw the reading for September 22nd on my clients desk and it was like it was put there for me indeed. Why should I stop and leave my life, my wonderful beating heart, my genuine caring and perfect job TO GO DOWN TO YOU! What a heck of a messenger I had today. I suspect "it" had wings, along with a job detail from above. The knife disappeared with all its hate as quickly as it had come. And with it went all the evil destruction it caused.
Reminded me of Jr. High, H.S., and even on out (girls) .....how some people treat others!
