Everyone Can’t Be in Your Front Row

Updated: Nov 26, 2019

I wrote a blog yesterday entitled Perfectly Imperfect & Stingy With Me, however… in scrolling through my profile on Facebook I posted this ‘note’ to my profile in 2011. As I still totally agree with it, I have a new perspective on this. In 2011, I posted this note in the perspective of: all who think are your friends, really aren’t. Adding on, now I look at it from a spiritual perspective: even when the world would name you as a “good person” are you good for me? In this season? In this life? Even though you are my family, should you automatically get a front row seat? Are you a person who is just a stepping stone, or are you one to be with me through all seasons? Check it out below:

Life is a theater so invite your audiences carefully. Not everyone is  healthy enough to have a FRONT ROW seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance.

It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships, friendships, fellowships and family! Everyone Can’t be in Your FRONT ROW.

Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention to:

Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are just going downhill?

When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don’t really understand, know and appreciate you and the gift that lies within you?

Everyone Can’t be in Your FRONT ROW.

The more you seek God and the things of God, the more you seek quality, the more you seek not just the hand of God but the face of God, the more you seek things honorable, the more you seek growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you, the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the FRONT ROW and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.

Everyone Can’t be in Your FRONT ROW.

You cannot change the people around you…but you can change the people you are around! Ask God for wisdom and discernment and choose wisely the people who sit in the FRONT ROW of your life.

Remember that FRONT ROW seats are for special and deserving people and those who sit in your FRONT ROW should be chosen carefully.
