Playing The Fool Gets You Played

Standard

Yeah, I wrote! Listen we can try to sugarcoat and water things down, but the truth of the matter if you’re dumbing yourself down or playing the fool in a relationship, the ONLY one getting played is you!

As a woman I’ve heard other women say, “I’m pretending I don’t know this or that is going on or I’m just going along with it, but I know what’s up.” If you’re acting like you don’t know, but you are still going along with it, then you’re still accepting whatever it is. If you’re pretending to not see what’s happening, although you really do see. Then you’re accepting it! You’re
“playing the fool only to get played.” As long as you go along with another person’s crap, they get to do to you whatever they like. It says something about them, but it also says something about you!

Both men and women do it. They turn a blind eye to their situations as if it will make things go away. NO, it doesn’t! In their hearts they know the mess they’re in, but try to act as if it’s alright, when it isn’t. You’re only (playing the fool only to get played).

I know many of you won’t see it this way and I don’t expect for you too, but the truth is still the truth! People make a million excuses as to why they put up with what they put up with. Remember, people will treat you EXACTLY how you allow and in fact you teach them how to treat you! That goes for family, friends, significant others, children, co-workers, or whomever.

In many relationships people put up with unnecessary crap, because of their individual true relationship with self. People who are dealing with unresolved issues will oftentimes seek out things they desire and want, dismissing what they truly need. They will go along to get along; which includes putting up with unnecessary mess to be a part of something or to be loved. Most are led by their feelings and emotions.

Folks can sense vulnerability in others. They see it in the actions of others. There are plenty of people with agendas different than the person they are with. They will get from you what they can and they will treat you exactly how they want to, because it’s what’s allowed. They know it and you know it!

Trying to love someone into loving you just doesn’t work, especially when you don’t even love yourself. There are many people who don’t know what love is or what love isn’t. They go off of their feelings and emotions only to find themselves in bad situations in which they willfully got into. Sometimes you have to stop looking at the other person and examine yourself.

Many women accept ridiculous crap from their men. They have restrictions, boundaries, and guidelines put on them by their significant others, yet their significant others do what they want. You’re being played! I know it doesn’t sit well with someone, but it’s okay. I hope it rattles you enough to take an assessment of yourself and your situation.

I want people to stop denying the truth and face reality. A lot of people ask for the truth, but when they get it they feel some type of way about it. No matter the truth, some people will turn a deaf ear and blind eyes to it. It all goes back to who you really are as an individual. What’s inside of you speaks volumes in your actions.

I understand sometimes people are in very abusive relationships and they pretend this or that in fear of their lives. I completely understand this logic. However; no matter the situation if this happens, you’re still going along with it. You’ve given power to the other person to do whatever they want to do to you, because they know you’ll go along with it! Devastating as it may be you’re still “playing the fool and getting played.” Why? Because your significant other gets to treat you any kind of way, because it is what you’ve allowed. If you’re afraid to leave you’ve stayed way too long!! Seek help with your situation before it’s too late!

Moral of it this blog is your life belongs to you! Your power, self esteem, peace of mind, courage, strength, etc, etc, belongs to you and ONLY you! However, your significant other or anyone else whom you allow will take it from you causing yours to diminish. Never give anyone or anything power to take what belongs to you! Never play the fool, if you play the fool then you subject yourself to being played. Why? Because technically who you allow to play you see you as a fool! If you have to be lied to, deceived, manipulated, cheated on, abused, etc, etc it is NOT love, because love has NOTHING to do with it! Don’t play the fool, because it makes you one who will undoubtedly get played!

If You Loved Jesus As Much As Everything Else

Standard

We’ve all been guilty. I have mentioned it in previous post I am a gospel singer/songwriter and I love it beyond words. I grew up singing from the age of 11, I’ve been around top notch national artist. I’ve enjoyed singing on the same stages with them all over the place. God knows my passion for it, but my passion for Him exceedingly and abundantly outweighs my passion for it.

I’ve learned in my life particularly in the past going on 9 years to lean and depend completely on Jesus. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t worship or idolize nothing or no one. I know I am “plain Jane” to most. I have no favorite anything. There are things I like, but the line between enjoying those things and worshipping those things is great. I worship nothing or no one, other than the Father. He’s my everything and my all and all. I am rooted and grounded in my faith. I live what I teach and preach. I don’t waver with the way of the world.

Too many people profess Him with their lips yet their hearts are far from Him (straight from the Word). It is so true! These same people profess to live for Him (lies). I’m not trying to judge, I’m only telling the truth.

If a person really love God, then He would be first in their life and it will be reflected in how they live. Instead of getting right and for real with Jesus many are trying to hide what they are really doing. They think what they are doing is hidden or is a secret. Well nothing is a secret to the Father. He knows and sees all we do. He said all things done in the dark will come to the light. It’s no lie people!

If people loved Jesus and our Father God the way they love everything else oh what a beautiful world this would be. People are too busy trying to showboat and pretend until they don’t understand they are on the road to hell.

People are so focused on worshipping other people who by the way aren’t exempt from the same problems in life as you, (love, pain, suffering, all kinds of other troubles) and they aren’t exempt from dying. Yet many of the same people claiming to love Jesus are idolizing people and many other things.

People spend millions on sports teams, they are die hard fans. Yet, they don’t show near the passion for Jesus. They pick Him up and put Him down when it’s convenient for them.

People will go to the ends of the earth to seek love, when most times what they receive; has NOTHING to do with love.

God is being mocked on every hand. In today’s society it seems the norm to mock God, but let me tell you He’s a God that shall not be mocked. People who are doing it will be greatly rewarded. Yes rewarded, because they will received something in return for the wrong they’re doing.

As I’ve always said; this world has nothing to offer but death; that’s it! People who are ONLY claiming Jesus don’t want to let go of this world. They still want to do what they do, act how they act, talk how they want, etc; when none of it is a representation of Jesus. A bunch of “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” However, no matter the disguise; you can’t fool Jesus! You can’t fool God; you’re only fooling yourself. Fooling yourselves into believing #1 that you’re smart enough to fool God and #2 that the world has something better to offer you then God and His Son Jesus.

God has no respectable person and neither does the devil. God wishes for none of us to perish, while the devil is trying to kill us all. God’s love for us is unconditional, but the devil knows nothing about love (he’s here to kill, steal, and destroy). God cleans you up from the inside out, but the devil only polishes the outside making a person appear to be something he or she is not. Sill people would rather profess Jesus but live for the devil. They are choosing to “gain the whole world and lose their souls” because if you’re not truly for Him (all the way), then you’re against Him.

Loving Jesus completely is to put Him first and not put anything or anyone before Him. If people would put in the effort and time to love Jesus and want to be a part of Him like they do the world and all of its ways what a wonderful world it would be.
