Sometimes when we are "dissed" we are really "dissed". I'm not sure if people in general realize the depth of being dissed and the far reaching effects.
Have you been...Disrespected? Disturbed? Discouraged? Disenfranchised? Disadvantaged? Disabled? Disappointed? Disapproved?
How about disarmed? Disavowed? Discarded, and Discharged? Perhaps you have been Discombobulated? Or even Discomfited?
Maybe discomforted...disconnected...discontented...disheartened...discontinued...discounted...discriminated...and discrowned.
This could lead to: disdain... discouragement... displeasure... disembodiment... disenchantment... disengagement... disestablishment... disgrace... disgruntlement... disgusted... and a whole lot of other "disses".
When you allow yourself to be dissed you are in distress!
In these times, and they will come on occasion, remember that you are a... ...Disciple!
2 Tim. 3:14 - "But as for you, continue to hold to the things that you have learned and of which you are convinced, knowing from whom you learned [them]."
It hurts when people come against you in various ways. It distresses a soul in all ways. It taxes ones patience and resolve.
However, our relationship with Christ and the Truth of His Word prevails.
The discontentment of others will always splash over into the lives of the content. People who suffer from chronic discontentment will always try to spread their unhappiness into the lives of those who are living otherwise joyful lives in Christ.
Don't accept it. Don't receive it. Absorb the blows and let Christ in you deal with it. Process it and move on.
A little tidbit for you. If you do this, you will be amazed at how Christ deals with it. Not only will you be protected, but you will rebound stronger. It's almost as if you gain strength and favor in Christ as the result of people's insensitivity toward you.
Hold fast to Him. You will find yourself "dissing" others. You will dis-play and dis-* the grace of the One Who has taken on your battles!
Disregard the disrespect and you will disable the work of the enemy!
Keepin' it Real,
The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note
