Bullying. We try to stop it, but we can’t. We're here to tell how we can stop it.
We can’t stop it with our body’s that God has given us, for “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”
Yes, bully’s are flesh and blood. But it is the evilness of the devil’s powers that their mind is flooded with.
Even though ALL of our minds are, they do actual work for the enemy.
Yes, we all are a slaves to the devil, and forever will be until the 2nd coming. But, what’s different... they enjoy it. They make bullying define their lives.
Our identity’s are in Christ alone, but they delight in evil...
We rejoice in truth, but they rejoice whenever they hurt others.
And how do we stop it? It may seem hard, but nothing. How? Just pray and “You shall receive”.
I had a bully once (my mom hates when I get bullied) so my mom out of NO WHERE found “Break the arms of these wicked, evil people! Go after them until the last one is destroyed.”
(Psalms 10:15 )
We all laughed like that would ACTUALLY happen to him... and next time I saw him... his arm was broken...
I’m not saying pray for bully’s arms to break, but pray that God’s got the situation, and pray that God will change there lives.
But what if... we are bully’s? Yes, idc who u r, you are a bully. I’m a bully. We say things against the Lord our Savior ALL the time!! So, we are bully’s spiritually... God sees us as dirty rags at our best.
How do we not bully? Surrender your mouth to God. Say “I’m not worthy of your Love, Lord. I was the nail in your hand. I am a dirty rag. But you love me anyways. Thank you Lord for Loving me like you do. I surrender my mouth and what I say to you, lord.”
I can’t say it for you, it’s your choice to say it.
It's really hard to get through the stage of being bullied. It's even harder to stay true to yourself when you are being bullied.
Standing up to bullies is scary -- scratch that; it's TERRIFYING, but you can't just stand by and be a bystander. If you're being bullied, and your friends just stand by and watch, not doing anything, it would be and feel like a betrayal. You don't want someone else to feel that way either. Ever. It's the worst feeling in the world, like you're being betrayed and you're all alone. Sometimes that feeling is so strong that you want to suicide. Sadly, many people can't handle the depression and stress of knowing that one thing, and they do kill themselves. If you are feeling that feeling, please please please contact a therapist. Having friends is the key. If you have truly good friends, then they'll always -- and I mean ALWAYS -- stick up for you. You can stick up for others, too, even if they're not your friends. Doing good things will always pay off in one way or the other. Mostly, just protest or report anyone to a trusted adult or older friend. They'll help put a stop to it, once and for all.
Dealing with bullies is not easy, I can tell you that from experience. Bullies are both mental and physical; commonly, girls bully one another through texts and social media, and boys more commonly bully one another physically, although it is also common for these two cases to switch.
Some may say that physical bullying is easy to handle, and that sneaky bullying is harder; that is true, but physical bullying is equally hard. If you are being physically bullied, tell an adult and stick close to a supervisor during recess or lunch recess or lunch in the future, just in case.
Sneaky bullying. If someone is sending you mean text messages, respond nicely. That way there's proof that THEY sent THAT mean stuff and YOU responded NICELY.
An eye for an eye makes the world blind. That is true, so only deflect; if you become mad or sad or angry, then the bullies' goals are accomplished. Don't let that happen.
Lastly, family. Your family is always there for you, no matter what. They're always on your team, cheering for you, so you can always tell them whatever you need to tell them. They're there for you. Don't hide from them. There's no one else in the whole world who loves you more than them.
Honestly, for this kind of horror - bullying, that is - I have to say that really you can only turn to the Lord. That saying, "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will hurt me," is extremely wrong. Whoever invented it obviously was never bullied himself/herself.
Now I haven't gotten really bullied yet, but I know that it'll happen sometime in the future. When that happens, turn not only to your friends. Turn to your family. And most importantly, turn to God.
I'll keep this short, but I still want to say that bullying is terrible. If you are a bully, turn back now, and do some good.
