“Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife.”
– Proverbs 17:1 [NIV]
Toxic environments are the one thing Satan will use to throw us off track. When you’re in a place that is filled with negative energy, it will quickly bring you down. I remember living in New York City for my freshman year of college. New York City is known for being stressful. I remember living in the projects, and it was just so much negativity I had to deal with regularly. I was living among mentally ill neighbors, the family members I was living with didn’t get along, and just the whole vibe was stressful. I eventually moved back to my mom’s house in North Carolina, and from there, I was able to finish college and grow spiritually. A lot of you guys don’t have to option to just remove yourself from a toxic environment, but just keep praying, and God will make a way out.
