“Often wise sayings fall on barren ground; but a kind word is never ever thrown away.” Sir Arthur Helps
There are so many things to grasp. Our own recovery practically insists we grab vital truths. When we latch on them, we must stick to them no matter what. When we lose someone, or even lose ourselves, we must listen so much closer– the Lord will send someone to our side.
Some rules though:
- Curiosity is not ever the same as caring.
- Losing ones balance is never the same as losing ones testimony.
- A gentle touch can mean more than a powerful revelation.
- Words of kindness are better than cold truth.
- To really hear is better than a speech of true words.
- We must live out the questions we whisper to God
- Practising prayer is better than just simply praying.
- Similar experiences that emphasize a connection is never the same as the individuals.
- Our questions to God reveal far more than His answers.
- When we do decide to dance, our true friends will dance too.
Ok, I must admit these are not always true and concrete in my heart. My life seems to be a cavern of emptiness; there is little inside but a silly reputation. But it’s a blanket that can’t warm my chilly heart.
12 “Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.”
Colossians 3:12-14, NLT
“Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.”
“It is a sin to belittle one’s neighbor;
blessed are those who help the poor.”
