The Bible has been speaking to me A LOT lately

A LOT has been going on in my personal life. Sometimes I want to take what is happening and BLOG IT and other times I think to myself, “if I blog that I will never hear the end of it.”

I’ve have had my nose in my Bible almost every day since February. I even started a blog about my journey through the Bible called Stretching My Faith.

The last two or three days verses have jumped OFF the pages!!!

We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer. People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives. Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. -Proverbs 16: 1-3

I know people who are trying to make their own plans all the time but they never stop to ask themselves if their plans have been pre-approved by God. I can honestly say with confidence that if something is meant to be and I have prayed about it and it works out – GREAT! I do my best not to stress on uncertainty because I know that God is in control and at the end of the day everything works out for the best for those that Love the Lord.

I feel sorry for people that are afraid or too PROUD to look in the mirror. They are so afraid to look in the mirror that they will do and/or say ANYTHING including LIE to build justification for their very BAD behavior. At the end of the day God sees everything! God knows who is LYING. God knows who is being truthful.

If people would take the time to read their Bible and Pray to God about things in general He might be apt to hear your cries when life hands you more than you believe you can handle. At the end of the day God is Good! If you commit your actions to Him then maybe your plans will be successful. If you are so UN-HAPPY and MISERABLE with your life then maybe it’s time to ask yourself when was the last time you had a conversation with JESUS?

Arrogant people smear me with lies, -Psalm 119: 69a

It’s even worse when the arrogance comes from your own family. People who are too stubborn, proud and are so self-centered they have made themselves their own little idol of worship. They lie because in their own desperate need to be right about EVERYTHING they panic thinking that they have to convince complete strangers that they are “okay” but everybody else is against them. I call that being paranoid! They take what they are feeling inside and resort to BAD BEHAVIOR and LIES to convince anyone who will listen how horrible they have been treated. Their cry about everyone “hating” them when in reality it's really how they feel about themselves.

Their hearts are dull and stupid, -Psalm 119: 70a

Don’t you just LOVE and APPRECIATE it when people try and come to the rescue of those who need help in order to make this all about THEM!? They will take and feed from someone else’s problems and in order to make themselves look good do whatever they can to add more gasoline to the fire. Instead of trying to offer solutions on what each person can do to fix the situation they prefer to point the finger and pass BLAME. Last time I checked when there is a problem ALL THE PARTIES INVOLVED has to be open to recognizing and admitting what they did to contribute to the problem. It takes more than TWO to have a disagreement and the person in question cannot always be right about EVERYTHING!! I don’t know about you guys but “dull” and “stupid” hearts are not the type of people I want to be around. These same people are never willing to bend, always looking for an apology that is never good enough, and would prefer to be miserable if it means the misery they are inflicting on themselves will prop them up to the top of the attention ladder. NO THANKS!!

Bring disgrace upon the arrogant people who lied about me; -Psalm 119:78a

I was too young to know I would be marrying the wrong person at the tender age of 20 and my glasses were all fogged up with something that I believed was “true love.” In a nutshell I married the wrong guy. He was abusive physically and mentally. He was addicted to drugs and alcohol – still is! I left his bad behavior because I didn’t want my daughter to have to grow up with a dysfunctional mess on her hands. All you family members that were told my 1st marriage failed because “I” was the one with the drug and alcohol problem – YOU WERE LIED TO!!

If there is one thing I cannot stand is a compulsive habitual liar. What’s even worse is when they are part of your own family. At the end of the day – GOD SEES!!

The Lord has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster. The Lord detests the proud; they will surely be punished. -Proverbs 16:4-5

Those are the verses that have jumped out at me as of lately because they fit so well with what is going on in my life. I am vague with my post for a reason. Yes, this deals with family and no they don’t live in Nebraska. They know who they are!

Protect me from those who hunt me down without cause. -Psalm 119: 86b
