The Spirit of Maturity

I am a friendly person by nature. I should state that sometimes my friendliness can go overboard. Taking extra steps to help those in my world, or not bothering about emptying my pockets just to make others happy.

But you all know, friendly people can be the talking types. I am also one of them. Oftentimes, I would not realise I have spent hours speaking. To some, it is nifty. To some, it is a problem. Believe me, dear friends, it is perhaps preferable to minimise taking one’s actions to the extreme. This is plainly because it can hurt.

Being oneself is not a trouble. What becomes an issue is not mastering it.

People who let the cat out of the bag too much may not be taken seriously. You must have been there or you may have somebody in your life who is a certified talkative. One day, I discovered something has to change for me. I know that I was not alone to alter how I interact with people. The Holy Spirit is the best guardian for this. You can only take in a perfect turnaround when you commit your ways to the Spirit of the Lord. He will help you out as He answered for me.

I prayed to God, asking for the spirit of maturity. Being an adult does not mean one has the abilities to behave maturely. Lifetime is a lesson we all are to learn daily. That I called to Jehovah to help me talk less and listen more, did not prevent me from asking for the assistance of the Holy Ghost. I needed then and still needing His guidance every second of my life.

To God be the glory, everything shifted! Rather than being the one to pick up my phones and call others endless time, now I give them their spaces. Listening has turned out to be the most beautiful act above talking or interrupting others.

That you acquiring God’s gift of maturity is sufficient to assist you in managing everyday life experience and occurrences. Do not arrive to that point where you believe you can sort things out alone. Situations can get out of your control at the moment you imagine you can handle it by yourself. Ask God for His spirit of maturity. He will yield it, freely without any judgements, any restrictions.

God bless you.
