Scripture

Psalm 129

Psalm 129

Psalm 129.  People not liking me is an everyday part of life.  I used to try and fix it.  There were times when I would force someone to tell me what I did wrong and how I can make it better.  I have apologized, sincerely, without knowing what I am apologizing for.  There have been excuses made, I have changed how I do things, just to please man.

Let me tell you, that crap is for the birds.  If someone doesn’t like you or a friendship dissipates, let it go!  Just let it the crap go.  If you know you have done something wrong, absolutely apologize.  Otherwise, shake the dust off your feet because it is not your problem.  The other person has an issue and until they can come to you, to discuss it, leave it alone.

It is not my job to please man and to make people like me.  God fights those battles.  I just need to be silent. (Ex. 14:14)

Psalm 129

From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me.
    Let all Israel repeat this:
From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me,
    but they have never defeated me.
My back is covered with cuts,
    as if a farmer had plowed long furrows.
But the Lord is good;
    he has cut me free from the ropes of the ungodly.

May all who hate Jerusalem
    be turned back in shameful defeat.
May they be as useless as grass on a rooftop,
    turning yellow when only half grown,
ignored by the harvester,
    despised by the binder.
And may those who pass by
    refuse to give them this blessing:
“The Lord bless you;
    we bless you in the Lord’s name.”
