<----- This is the only picture I could find quick enough to post in my blog... it's cute.. but I hope I don't get in trouble for using it.. YIKES!!
Well you know that I'm reading my chocolotherapy book... and last night while reading I found a little snippet about God... If God was a gossiper.. What would he say about you?
Now I Know what you're thinking.. you're off your rocker.. God doesn't gossip, it's a sin... It's just plain NOT Christ like... I know.. I know.. But for giggles.. What are a few things right here right now.. that you think God would TELL ME about you!! Of course I'm a secret keeper.. so I would never Tell!!!!
For me.. I think God would tell you all.. that.. I'm LOST in the direction I'm going in my life.. I don't know what the future is suppose to hold and have been Lost for about two years... That I'm not listening close enough to HIM or following direction. I don't spend enough time in the word, therefor our relationship is strained, yet I'm not a hopeless cause.. ( but then again NO ONE IS!!)...That I'm a giving person and I put my family FIRST.. ALWAYS.. That I can be selfish and unselfish all in the same action.... But no matter what I do.. I am always forgiven and loved unconditionally.. and sometimes I put that Love on a back burner because there are days I just don't know what to do with it!!
Have you ever been hurt by gossip?? Or have you gossiped and hurt someone? I think we can pretty much ALL say both has happened..."A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man who talks to much." Proverbs 20:19 I envy women who can talk and NOT gossip.. I ENVY people who can ONLY say nice things about others... I always ask God.. "Why don't I have a heart like that"... His reply if I could guess... "You could you just chose to speak before you think.. the tongue is the strongest muscle in the body... but it can also be the MOST hurtful if not exercised right".... GULP!!!!
The next time you feel like speaking BAD about someone... WRITE IT DOWN and then throw it away.. I think getting it out still helps... but maybe not directing at another human being might be more kind.... I'm guilty... sooooooooo guilty.....But working hard at it!!
