Discovering what love is one day at a time
Ever notice that everywhere you go…there you are … that you can do the same thing over and over and it doesn’t change, unless you do something different. My Dad would always say to me….”think before you do” he always challenged me with that, and I always ignored his great advice, because I did not want to change how I did things. I did not want to think about how I was thinking, and I did not want to see how my actions effected others. I did not want to see that my thinking was the reason I kept falling into the same hole. I did not want to see that my thoughts, attitudes and emotions were the things that kept me locked up, and created a rift in relationships.
Have you ever said “yes” to something, because it was something good to do even though you knew prior to saying yes that you really couldn’t. How was that for you? Was there inner turmoil over the fact that you either did not want to be there, or was it more of the fact that you overbooked yourself and something else of higher priority was suffering because of your choice? How about the opposite example, you said “no” to something for whatever reason, and knew that you should of said,”yes.” Isn’t it great that the truth hurts? Isn’t it great that truth and falsehood are like oil and water? They can only be mixed for a short time, but they always will separate from one another. Truth cuts away falsehood, and cutting hurts. Truth separates, it identifies motives, and it provides an opportunity for change. When we say “yes” to something, our behavior and actions should follow, just as when we are a “no.” If we say we are not going to do something, and yet we go and do it…doesn't that make us a liar, and vice versa? How important it is for us to keep peace in our hearts by walking in truth. We cannot just speak and have our actions or behavior be contrary to what we have spoken…let's let our yes be “YES” and our no be “NO.”
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 24 years. We have two young men ages 20 and 15.. This blog is somewhat of a journal and attempt for me to keep a purposeful perspective on life as a whole.
