Growing up I was sort of a loner. You see I was never a fan of drama and as long as I stayed to myself there was never any drama. Sounds simple enough but eventually that lifestyle becomes a bit lonely. Sure enough it didn’t take long and the drama boat was in full effect. Of course I quickly cut ties with the people who had all the drama. Then I began to realize something, no matter who we have in our lives there will always be drama.
Drama among women seems to be inevitable. As women we always seem to be in competition with each other. We become resentful of the things that other women have. We seem to forget that our main priority should be to focus on what God has blessed us with. Instead we begin nit picking and judging each other instead of building each other up . This resentfulness and nasty attitude begins to take on a life of it’s own and before you know it we have drama.
In an ideal world we wouldn’t have to worry about these things. You see in an ideal world we as women would know that we are on the same team. We would know that each and every one of us have special gifts. These gifts could be used to build each other up instead of tearing each other to sheds. Allowing this drama to consume us is only allowing Satan to trample on our hearts.
So what are we to do when we are confronted with drama?
When we are confronted with drama we really need to think about the source. Is it friction that is going on within ourselves and not something that really has to do with the other person? Too many times we will find that we are simply lashing out because we feel inadequate in whatever area it is that we are complaining about with the other person.
After searching within ourselves if the problem is still there we need to seek God’s guidance. Sometime we will find that God has laid it on our hearts to say something, in which case we really need to turn to God’s Word to chose the right words. Other times we may find that we need to end that friendship. Both of which are every hard tasks.
The fact still remains:
As Christian women we have no time for drama. Drama will eat a way at you and it will cause you way more harm then good. Make sure that you are keeping your heart in line with God’s will and also make sure that they things you are exhibiting are things that are full God’s grace.
