PROMISING MATTERS


  • THE ABOVE IS HOW TO FOLLOW THE DEVIL WITHOUT EVEN TRYING

  • Sometimes I wonder how much better off the world would be if everyone purposed in their hearts and minds to compliment ten people a day.
  • THE LORD'S ON GUARD
    "The eyes of the Lord keep guard over knowledge and him who has it..." Pr.22:12 Oh that Wisdom be confirmed by the knowledge we discover and grasp. God expects discretion be used in the knowledge we have so that He be glorified. God will guard our hearts and minds "but He overthrows the words of the treacherous." With believers, knowledge comes with responsibility. All we do with what we know is accountable to God. Likewise the words of our mouth reveal the integrity of our hearts. May we speak and act with integrity with that which we know that the Lord be glorified. selahV

Now Anonymous: I got your apology. I accept your apology. All is behind me. And it all happened before the sun went down. Please, do not hold my dear friends in low regard for coming to my rescue. They are so precious to me. And I wouldn't want any of them to think they had chased you away.

I think in the future we just need to speak to the statement we question with a question. To assume one is saying something they aren't is where many folks (myself included) go wrong in blogland.

I've stopped commenting on several sites for similar reasons. Not because I have been chastened by anyone, but because there are some people who simply do not accept what I am saying is what I am saying. Each statement is not only distrusted by some, but is interpreted to mean something entirely different than I'm saying it. they read motive, intent and all kinds of things into my comments without once asking me if that is what I was trying to say. After a while I get tired of saying no, that's not what I'm saying to only have someone tell me I'm wrong in what I know I'm saying.

Now if that isn't a mind-boggling way of saying, please communicate with me. Then nothing is. I'll bet there are twenty ways to Sunday to interpret those statements. But for the love of life, please understand I am not the least bit irritated as I write. I'm genuinely wanting to make peace between all parties. One: I know Steve isn't at all upset. Two: I know Rose isn't. Three: I know Karen is, but more so because I was called arrogant (which she cannot in her wildest imagination conceive me being). Would that she were correct. I don't see myself that way but I must have had some point in my life where I rose to stoop that low. Four: Anoymous--your exit is not necessary. But if you feel you'd be uncomfortable in this site, I certainly wouldn't want you to be. I do think that you are free to question anything I say. I don't know that I'd always have the answers, or an answer to quench your thirst on any comment I'd make. But I sure would try.

Just understand, please, when I speak of what I understand God to be, I am talking about me--not anyone else. Even all my dearest friends and I do not interpret every dot and tittle of God's Word the same. I don't try to persuade them to believe anything. I just share me and what God is doing in my life. If you can keep that in mind, then when I say something you may have encountered with hostility before me, you'll know I am not them. I am selahV. I truly think that is what Rose, Steve and Karen were trying to say about me. I'm not at all perfect and I know it. And if I get to even considering the possibility that I am, the Lord quickly pops me on the noggin and lets me know that perfection comes later. O for that day to be face to face with my Lord! love and grace be yours, brother. selahV

Yes! God has been honored in Grosey's words and Roses's words. The presence of the Almighty is always evident on this blog. Love to SelahV!

PERSONAL OPINION

  • IN MY HUMBLE OPINION
    An opinion is something we own as ours. What we feel necessary to state publicly could become another's opinion as well. It would be good to consider how much truth is at the core of one's opinion before voicing it. Are we willing to take the time to dig to that depth before we adopt another's opinion as our own? selahV
