Living by Bread and Water Alone and a Little Advice


Okay let me ask you guys, for a little advice first. So this weekend I heard some very disturbing news about a friend of my family. Now I'm not suppose to know this, but I heard from someone close to them, who told someone close to me, that their family is taking serious advantage of them. There was a huge tragedy, that occurred to them, and their family is taking this time to get all they can get from them...in so many words, their family is robbing them blind. You would think at a time like this, their family would be coming together and doing all they can to help this person out, during what I would without a doubt say, is the roughest time of their life, but what are they doing instead, taking the biggest advantage of their vulnerability, extremely hard, and emotionally sensitive time, to get money and things from them. Now my gut reaction was to go to them and tell the family friend to stop it all. However I have been told and reminded, that I wasn't suppose to know, and that it isn't my family, so I can't say anything. I'm not suppose to know, and I understand that, but it hurts, that after all this person has to go through, their family is basically robbing and taking advantage during this time, because they feel they can, and know that even in a better time, this person would never go to them and tell them off!

Now here is my question, what do y'all think I should do leave it alone, because I'm not suppose to know, and only family would really know about what I know, and I'm not family....or go to this person and talk them...tell them, "Don't let people take advantage of you, and to take back what's yours and be strong during this time, because I know they have that strength in them!"...What do y'all think?



Okay this post was actually a lot longer this morning, but lets thank ,"ButtahflyChronicles", for blowing up my spot, and making me feel so horrible, and wrong, tha tI took the second half up my post off as soon as I read her comment.

I had not read the particular scripture she wrote before, and welll I just thought I would share, an intimate thing, that I am doing this week, but apparently I had to nip that right in the bud...Got me feeling all stupid and ig-net!!!That's alright I Love Buttafly, but I got cha...don't worry I got cha!!!

I even changed my second picture, no need for that either I say...I decided to keep the first one, becasue well, I think it still needs to be said, that Fasting Can Change Your Life!"

So I am going to just leave this part up with my advice question, then I am going to come back later this week, with my post thatI interrupted for this inspirational post that was here today....My next post "BLACK,DOWN LOW and the MARRIED MEN"...I'm sure Buttafly will have something to say on that.

Anyway I will be back with some much needed update post about the Mens in my life nad other things....So stay tuned, and pray for me and my uh will power...Love Y'all

Maybe you can send an anonymous message by way of snail mail to your friend with you brief brief sentiments. 2 or 3 sentences. If you write too much it may give you away.

Matt 6:18

It basically says that if you fast in secret then He will bless you openly.

I'm with Buttah. Send something an anonymous note.

I've never done a fast so I have much advice. All I know is to pray. Ask God to give you strength through your fast.

Thanks Butta, been MIA lately on my blog, but you showed right up, to blow up my spot...Thanks darlin!

South I'm totally okay, with you being ignorant on the subject a bit...(clears throat and gives Buttafly the side eye)

Talk to the person directly or like the 2 above said. Don't go to the family about family business when your not family. Huge no no.

Q said...

Good luck with your fast boo boo!

I wasn't trying to blow you up. My family is big on fasting but I am not. It's just that I don't think I'm in a place where I can right now. I find more peace in food. But, I used to fast regulary and felt very close to Him as a result. So, I do remember the very basic of guidelines. My family studies books on it. I'll text my cousin for the title of their fav book.

I need to read the book too, because I'm long overdue for some blessings (at least that's what I think), but obviously I need to change some things about me too.

Look at that, cuz already texted me back "Fasting" by Jentezen Franklin. Does your family have this book?

Oh yes, and one last thing to "blow you up." No sex while you fast, even married people are supposed to abstain. It's because the goal is to starve the flesh of all pleasurable desires.
