Doing You Well Wednesday - #13

Do Not Resuscitate (DNR)!

Have you ever wondered why he/she stopped calling, texting or tweeting?

Have you ever considered that that person's season in your life is over? They have completed their assignment in your life and it is now time for them to move on, and it is time for you to move on. They did not come to stay. Their visit may have been to guard you, to guide you or to help grow you. Whatever their reason for being in your life - their purpose was TEMPORARY. Remember all temporary assignments don't become permanent duties.

However, there are times when people enter our lives and they exit as quickly as they entered. They are like a thief in the night. They come to wreak havoc and to leave a path of destruction in every area that they touch. We often wonder why. John 10:10 plainly states their assignment is - "to kill, steal, and to destroy".


Many times, we discover that we had our trust in the wrong place. Our trust should have been in Almighty God as opposed to one of HIS creations.

So, today, I challenge you to take a look at your situation. Did the person that walked out of your life help you or did they hurt you? Did he/she do more harm than good? Maybe, just maybe, it is best that they are gone. Now that they are gone, you can re-route your attention to that which is good and purposeful. Now that they are gone, leave them where they are. DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) that relationship. Stay on the course that God has set for you. Allow no one to get you off course!

 
Philippians 4:8  

King James Version (KJV)

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

  3. Victory, you certainly raise a great point. We have to have God's perspective regarding each person in our lives. The wonderful things about God is that He can use every person and circumstance {good or bad} to draw us into a richer, deeper communion with Him. Yes, some people are definitely not to be a permanent part of our lives.
    Thanks for coming by my place tonight!
    Blessings to you ~ Mary

  5. I often think people are in our lives for a variety of reasons, but sometimes they are there to help us out with one major thing. That's okay. We get what we need and that's all that matters.

    FYI: I'm visiting from the blog hop. :-)
