Two Things Given Equally to All

We have no control over the circumstances into which we are born. Some are born poor, some rich, some plain, some gifted. 

There are two things we are given equally—time and will. It’s how we use these gifts that determine the eventual value of our lives.

Communication can be overrated.
Once words leave the mouth,
they can never be retrieved.
To express negative feelings that have not yet
been taken to the Lord for His working,
is to expose the mess Satan is trying to make in
one’s life as though it were an accomplished feat.

Quality Words

To the discerning listener, one who speaks badly of others is the one who looks small.
Feeding a relationship with unkind words  about another is like drinking  poisoned tea together.
Kind words endear a speaker to a listener.

Taking personal offense from the words or  actions of others is like eating poison  offered from their hands.
Sluff the hurt away  with a kind thought or word. Choose to live a lovely life.

Whose Fault is This?

It’s easy to recognize the faults of others,  but fixing one's own is the work of a lifetime.
Oddly, the things we most dislike about others, are the things we fear  may reside in us.

This, Too, Shall Pass.

When some great sorrow, like a tsunami wave, roars over your heart with peace-destroying power, hold fast to the reality that this, too, shall pass.

“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.”
Psalm 30:5

Misdirected Deeds

Where the misdirected actions of others  affect our own lives, we have to quietly shift gears, alter our plans, forgive, love and  patiently wait for God to bring good  out of the circumstances.
