Oh my goodness, trigger alert! I don’t know what pushed my buttons so much but 3 sappy prayers went through my feeds all around the theme of, Lord help me to joyfully submit to my virtuous mask, my glorious quarantine, my lockdown, and the wisdom of my governing authorities.
Two guys and gal all claiming to be pastors.
These sappy prayer people are now blocked, unfriended, and off my Christmas list. In fact, I’ve deleted my Next Door entirely and I’m in the process of moving off Twitter and Facebook and over to Parler and MeWe.
After a I threw up in my mouth a little bit, I thought, smote them Lord, smote them all. These people serve no useful purpose in my world. Ima fling these people right off my planet. In the past decade I have never blocked anyone on social media and that’s saying something. I mean through death threats and revenge porn, I’ve simply filtered a few peeps and put them on mute.
I’m always chattering away and venting about the things that bother me, so it’s a bit unusual for me to fly into a murderous rage and feel the urge to take out a small country, but that really pushed my buttons. I’m so done with this rubbish. Stick a fork in her, she’s done. The little temp on the turkey done popped up.
I guess I really have seen my faith used to oppress people, to put them in bondage, to gaslight them into accepting what is unacceptable, used to enable what is evil to continue, to Stepford Wives and Stockholm Syndrome them right into co-dependency. It’s a real trigger.
Nope, I want no part of that vile perversion.
So feelings sometimes get a bad rap. We don’t honor them as we should. I’m not saying we should be totally led by our feelings, I’m just saying they are great messengers and they often have something to tell us, something to teach us.
For example, boundaries are so important! Anger can originate from many sources, grief, fear……and sometimes a complete failure to set boundaries, to put yourself and your needs first. Everybody is a bit different, so this may not apply to everyone, but the Lord has NEVER said to me, you really need to be nicer, kinder, gentler, more patient. But He has said to me over and over and over again, why are you not angry?!
Yo, be ye angry…and sin not!
