Stand Down


Sometimes there are those in your life that just needs to STAND DOWN and walk away!  We have come to a place where people have become so interested in ones accomplishments and life that they tend to want to figure it out or tell one how to live. This world have become private investigators, in which they really need to be investigating their own lives.

How did you do that….how are you making it…. who is he or who is she….how much money you make….You need to be……or you should be…..This is what one would call the committee of THEY.

Many tend to go through life blind; we have allowed the media, society, and what we call friends, family etc., to lead us through life. We have allowed our vision to become desorbed and blurry, by what I call “The Committee of THEY”….The Committee of THEY is a certain group of people who tells you what you should do, what you shouldn’t do and how you should live. They are a committee of people who’s life has become stagnated and at a stand still so they have nothing else better to do, but to tell you how you must live your life. The crazy thing about it is we all have listened to them at one point in time in our lives and for some they are still listening to them. The Committee of THEY has never had your best interest; it’s all about CONTROL to them. They feel bad about how life has turned out for them so THEY try and call themselves helping fix someone else’s, yet THEY can’t even take the same advice and FIX their own life.

It’s funny how we will allow a committee like that to lead, but we won’t allow God to lead us. The Committee of THEY is a very crafty committee. “If I was you I would” or “I wouldn’t do it like that” or “You don’t know what you’re doing”. The Committee of THEY tends to make you feel as if you do not have a mind of your own. But yet the word say’s “ I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me”.

See with The Committee of THEY nothing will ever be good enough, WHY! because you didn’t do it their way. Yet even if you do, do it their way it’s still not good enough. The point is open your eyes and see you will never be good enough for The committee of THEY. Stop trying to please THEM!

Stop trying to lose weight for THEM, but do it for you.
Stop putting your destiny on hold for THEM but go forth in what God already gave you approval to do.
Stop trying to see yourself through the eyes of THEM and see yourself through the eyes of Christ “Beautiful and wonderful made”
Stop trying to love THEM when they don’t love you
Stop trying to look a certain way for THEM do it for you.
Stop trying to go out of your way for THEM love you be good to you.
Stop trying to please THEM but learn to be happy with whom GOD is already pleased with and that is you!

When you finally drop your membership from The Committee of THEY not only till then you will start to see again and no longer be blind!
Open your eyes and see what GOD sees and not what THEY see!

Matthew 15:14King James Version (KJV)
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

If THEY not going to speak life into you or give you words of encouragement, or truly pray for you then…ALL YOU HAVE TO SAY TO THEM IS STAND DOWN PUT YOUR WEAPON DOWN (which is their mouth) AND SLOWLY WALK AWAY!
