I am fortunate enough to have access to Tina Tagle’s Blog. I would like to share to you one of the recent articles she posted on her blog. To be exact, she posted the article today and with her permission I am reposting this article in my blog.
So here it is and enjoy reading…
A friend of mine sent this to me early today, let me share it with you:
Wear Your Blessings Well…
When you’re blessed, the haters come out. When you step up to a new level, the backbiters show up. When you wear God’s blessings well, don’t be surprised if it draws jealousy out on people . But we got to get to a point where we say not arrogantly but in all HUMILITY, “I’m gonna wear God’s blessings well in spite of who doesn’t like it. I’m gonna take this promotion in spite of who gets jealous. I’m gonna wear this beautiful material blessings in spite of who gets envious. I’m gonna drive this brand new car in spite of who criticizes. I’m gonna move in to this nicer neighborhood in spite of who judges me.
LIFE IS WAY TOO SHORT TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT EVERYBODY THINKS. IF FRIENDS GET JEALOUS, AND JUDGE YOU AND ARE CRITICAL, YOU NEED SOME NEW FRIENDS. BECAUSE TRUE FRIENDS CELEBRATE YOU, TRUE FRIENDS ENCOURAGE AND CHEER YOU ON, TRUE FRIENDS ARE HAPPY WHEN YOU SUCCEED.
People may criticize. They may judge you, they may find fault.. but they don’t know what it took to get to where you are. Some people come in at the end of the movie and they see you blessed, and prosperous and healthy, and sober and free and happy and they want to judge you and criticize. But the problem is, they missed the 1st part. They didn’t see the sacrifices you’ve made. They didn’t see the struggles that you endure. They didn’t see the battles that you’ve fought. The times you felt like giving up but you kept pressing forward. The nights that you stayed up and prayed and believed and gave and served. They didn’t see the price that was paid to get you to where you are. And that blessing may look free, but the truth is it cost you something.
Don’t let anyone make you feel guilty for the favor, the honor, the peace, the victory that God has given you. Somebody paid the price. Seeds were sown. That is God honoring you’re past, faith, your sacrifices, your faithfulness. Don’t hide your gifts and blessings God gave it to you. People are always gonna talk. That’s their problem not yours. If you will always wear your blessings well.. BEING QUICK TO ALWAYS GIVE GOD THE CREDIT, then there’s no limit to where God could take you. He’ll make you an example of what it means to LIVE A BLESSED, PROSPEROUS, ABUNDANT LIFE.
