I grieve that so many times, I , despite my best intentions, really miss it. It has always been this way... and wonder if this is really true for all of us. What do we do with the mess we feel we made, whether it actually is a true mess, or the mess that we simply feel might be a mess, or a mess that absolutly, no holes barred, is a mess?
I am thinking we should strive to keep it real and go public with it, letting the chips fall where they may. (with most thinsgs that is) There are always those situations where another is involved, or others..., that may make it hard or impossible to speak your mind "out loud" because it may bring undo attention or recriminations on another innocent party, but I am talking about the former type of situation.. where it is okay to speak up about our "messes".
The Lord says to judge yourselves so you do not have to be judged. (loose translation)
I take that to apply to me in that, if I see I have done wrong to anyone etc... it is mine to correct it, that worse consequenses might not befall me.
I strive to love well. I fall short so often. I am learning as I go...
I strive to be more aware and sensitive to things and that is, without a doubt, only accomplished if we keep ourselves in His word...studying "the Perfection... the Purity , the Unadaulterated Truth" so that when we veer off, or another comes to us who is veering off the straight and narrow course,... we readily recognize it as such, that we might have time to make our paths right again--or help another to do the same...
This is always a good thing, but what is better is to be open before other believers, brothers and sisters in Christ, that they might see into your life and the goings on therein, and speak Truth into it.. or Chastisment or Wisdom... where necessary or appropriate.
If we fail to check ourselves and no-one comes alongside of us to speak Truth.. well, we are easily pulled off course and can soon enough find our faith, to one degree or another shipwrecked...
This is all I have to say... and for whatever reason... it was on my heart, as it applies to my latest misjudgement in my photo shoot post of my daughter in a reflective and romantic mode.
I am sure I need to look deeper into this... and well, I just had to vent. Maybe some might relate and be encouraged or ?
Not sure, but JIC and for what it was worth... I felt it right to post, so, I posted ...
God bless your days... to all who read here :)
Love and Peace,
