HEALING OF ONE’S LOST REPUTATION – By Charles R. Batchelor

We all receive so many negative words in our day to day living. I just want to restore some dignity to the people who are in your group and to encourage them to Forgive, Forget and Move on for they are Children of the Most High God. Thank You for being so kind to me. I just know that Artists get hit with a lot of this and in the graphics there is so much rejection. I am hoping this will uplift you all.

INTRODUCTION…

I want to clear up some things about what people say to others. It seems that much goes into listening to others more than God. This letter below is something I sent out to a friend who has been destroyed by words from others instead of the “Words” by God.

Please take time to read it all and apply it to yourself so that you can get the best out of what I am saying. Just look at me as your most honest, closest Friend who loves you the most who really knows your heart, okay? Here it goes:

Dear Friend,

I have not heard from you in a long time, now. How are you doing? I’ve not heard from the guy you sent my way about his music as well. I hope you are both doing well.

MUSIC INVOLVEMENT

We are busy in music and all related and now have our own Group. We will be doing Leading P&W music for the Life Center’s Single’s Retreat up near Crystal Mountain and Hosanna Family Christian Center’s Conference in, April (Both 3 day events).

We still lead P&W for Life Center’s Singles the 2nd Saturday of each month and Victory Christian Mins. the 1st Tuesday of each month. We lead P&W for Life Center’s North Campus from time to time as well.

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH YOUR LIFE?

The family you Married Into (Sometimes there reasons unrelated to you that they are this way)…

Do you get to see your daughter, now, without pressure or influence? I know that your “x” can be very set in their ways. I pray for them for they learned a lot of bad habits from their parents about not being forgiving and do not know how to let go of the past and move on. It seems the whole family is stuck. Do you ever hear from any of them? Are there parents still alive?

I truly think that when they finally die the rest of this family will be able to finally heal and let go and really make amends with each other and with other people, for they were/are under a heavy load of family history (Iniquities). I would like to see them all healed and move on and I pray for this from time to time.

You Are In Good Standing, Friend (Take a Stand and Do NOT Run)…

I pray for you to let go as well of what was said, my Friend. Don’t let what others say get in the way of living your life. Do NOT Run, but take a stand right in people’s faces, for anyone who runs will be assumed that they are what others have said.

Friend, Believe me when I say this, “People know others by their fruit; therefore, you have nothing to worry about. Their words have no true message, but are of anger, guilt and shame and most who get trapped in listening to them just don’t say what they really think to them just to keep the peace.

I say all this to set you FREE, my Precious Friend. I know you still feel you have to hide, defend and/or go clear out to another church, etc., but the truth of it is, you don’t have to do this! I don’t know of anyone who has ever said a bad thing about you. I cannot say the same for those who bad mouth you; therefore, you need to let it go and move on and be yourself and not fear.

I know you feel your reputation is tainted, but it is not, my Honorable Friend, it is not. Jesus came into this world, Scripture states, with little reputation and was talked about, slandered, abused and then killed and all the time… he was innocent. So, we should not think we have it any easier when we are born into sin. (Selah)

FEAR IS PRIDE…

When we FEAR about “our” Reputation “we” are acting on “our own” PRIDE (Selah) and not relying on God’s Reputation to protect us and cover our walk and mistakes along the way. Yes, it is pride that is holding you there, believe it or not, for if you were not so concerned with “yourself” you could move on… (Selah).

REACTING TO FOOLS…

Jesus said, “Never will I Leave or Forsake you and that no one can take from His hand what is His.” It, also, states in Proverbs that the wicked and the Foolish will run when no ne is even chasing them (Selah). So Stop Running!!! You Are In Good Standings With God, your friends, family and with those around you. Brother, it is time that you heal, stand up and then move on with dignity, for you are a man of honor and no one can take away what God has RESTORED! Yes!!!

The Trapping of a Fool…

For The Fool Who Insists on carrying on. In Proverbs it says this, “Do not indulge conversations with a fool, but answer back in silly replies.” This means don’t try to convince them of anything or waste your time with them, for it will only give them a sense of importance if you take what they say seriously (Selah).

By not responding or reacting as if what they say is senseless they will lose all power to their point and have no strength or importance and will go down to the place they really live.

Look at these people as “Gold Diggers,” trying to pull themselves out of the pit. They seek to find strength/importance (Not working to gain, but using their words to shame) in their words and gain importance (their gold is “attention”).

If they are ignored they just sit until the next victim comes along hoping they are stupid enough to think what these “Gold Diggers” have to say means something (lol).

IN CLOSING…

My friend, I hope this helps you move on and be who God has for you to be so you will seek the “Higher Call” in your life He has for you. You have not lost anything as long as you are following the, Lord and seeking his favor in your life. Let the jackals howl, for that is all they can do (make noise), my friend and after awhile everyone gets tired of hearing the dog barking and will just finally say, “Shut Up!!!” (lol)

MOVE ON, MY BEST FRIEND.
