"People miss you more when they see how much happier you are without them."
Baffled. Baffled at how highly one will exalt themselves. Baffled at the pride. Baffled at how many people can be disillusioned. It’s not about catchy empowering phrases that make you take initiative. It’s not about how great your ideas sound. If you can’t make it happen, it’s useless. Time and time again I have not seen proof of ability. If you cause strife and dissension, you SUCK. There is no nice way to say it. It really makes me flabbergasted. But I do know, God is sovereign. He is still on the throne. This is part of His perfect plan. And, whatever happens it may not always be what I deem best, but I will trust that He knows better.
I opened my Bible to a random page and found Proverbs 11:1-14.
"A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, but a just weight is his delight. When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them. Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. The righteousness of the blameless keeps his way straight, but the wicked falls by his own wickedness. The righteousness of the upright delivers them,but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust. When the wicked dies, his hope will perish, and the expectations of wealth perishes too. The righteous is delivered from trouble, and the wicked walks into it instead. With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor, but by knowledge the righteous are delivered. When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices, and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness. By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown. Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense, but a man of understanding remains silent. Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered. Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.”
