So what is this going to be? A little bit of everything I think. Maybe that's it. What I'm thinking. What I'm believing. I hope what I'm knowing. And why would anyone care what I think I know? There's no reason in the world that you should. But then why are you here? Cuz you have to be somewhere I suppose. I've never been here before. I may not be back. I might get too busy to care; time is short. That's fine. Nobody can deal with it all at once. There is a lot to deal with.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but I know I have far too much. So I'm trying to learn how to laugh again, as I had forgotted for a while there. Also I'm relearning to enjoy life; you know, like when we were kids. The biggest challenge ahead is learning how to love God with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. This one is not really that hard when you know the truth. But along with it comes learning to love others as I love myself, and that one is, as they say, "a horse of a whole different color." I think I need to learn to love myself a little more, but the problem may be that I know all these facts about me. Sometimes the facts are simply wrong or they are just stuck in the past. I'm trying to get my facts to line up with the truth. As someone once asked a great man, "what is truth?" If he had only known.

Wednesday's Wisdom

Each night we lie down and before dosing off to sleep, we forgive ourselves for all our trespasses. We decide to love ourselves unconditionally and we wipe the slate clean of any wrongs that we have committed. We can be most magnanimous and loving toward ourselves.
~God doesn't like inconsistencies~
We are commanded to love others the same way that we love ourselves. We are to forgive others the same way that we forgive ourselves. We are to wipe their slate clean of any wrongs they may have done to us, just as we have done for ourselves.
Should we not forgive others so that we will be forgiven ourselves? Yes, it is easier said than done, but then everything is easier "said" than actually doing it.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. ~ Philippians 4:13
