Dear journal,
Had an amazing time this morning during my devotion. My eyes got opened in a way that left me amazed. So,pride comes before a fall. Pride will lead you to envy which givea birth to jealousy and this is a deadly venom. The Lord reminded me that the world indeed does not revolve around me and the sooner i understand that,the easier my life will be.
Point 2,there can be a very thin line between self confidence and pride. You need to know where to draw the line. So,the Lord reminded me that i am not everyone’s preference;no matter how amazing i may be,not everyone will like me. So now,when someone else gets chosen over me,it doesn’t necessarily mean there’s something wrong with me,it just means the person choosing prefers the other person and God let me know its ok. See,when you are proud,you will get mad for being passed and this will mostly grow to envy of the person chosen.which leads to jealousy. How to know you are proud is when you think everything is about you. The relationship that left me very bitter,God used it to teach me that humility is a virtue…that i need to embrace. I was bitter coz i thought i was better.
All i am is because of who God is. While i can be confident in myself,i need to remember that i am only human. Preferences people,exist. If you are not soneone’s better option,it does not mean you are not worthy or any weird thing like that,it simply means,they prefer something different. Learn that sooner and you will have a simpler life. I got that and i was like aha! I have been a hostage of my pride… But no more. I choose to remind me.daily about humility until it becomes second nature to me… It is the better life.
Preferences…humility…
Good night.
Xoxoxo.

  1. What you typed was actually very logical. But, what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome headline? I am not saying your information isn’t good., however suppose you added something to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Pride…humility…preferences… imperfectous is kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles to get people interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more interesting.

  2. Hello,

    Just want to let you know I am reading your blog.

    You have a lot of useful insights, especially about relationships. This is a subject that seems hopelessly mysterious to me.
