Breaking, Confidence...

 

Wild Horses couldn't drag it out of me!
Can you hold a confidence?
Of something that someone has shared with you!
Being told something about someone, and sharing it, is breaking confidence.
I have been in situations where you just knew you were going to get an ear full.
There are times when I just felt prompted by the Lord;
To steer away from a group of woman!!

A woman who can hold her tongue, is very valuable!
My favorite saying that just alerts the bells is this one;
"I really love so and so" BUT...!

Watch OUT here it comes!

We have all done this Dear Ones...

What is important now, is what do you do when you break confidence??
For me, I am grateful that I get a check from the Holy Spirit!
(Remember He is ALL truth)
Firstly, when this happens, I ask for forgiveness.
Then, I come out of agreement with what I have said about that person,
Or situation...
Unless two walk in agreement, it will not be so.

Aha, So we need two who agree!

Who has not been in the crossfire of confidence being broken?
It hurts, and it wounds, and destroys lives.

There is a place for speaking truth!!
That is why we must be careful what we make ourselves privy too!

I always think of Luciall Ball when I think of that statement;
(Wild horses couldn't drag it out of me)




Now, We all know she couldn't keep a secret from Ethel Mermen!
Her best friend and her partner in crime!
See, it takes two!
Do not make a dear sister in the Lord a partner in crime!

Blessings,
Roxy

  1. Oh, yes- Sadly, I have been on both sides of that situation. I do try to not break trusts anymore though. I know so many things that I will NEVER share about others. Great post- Roxy. xo Diana

  2. This is a fun way to look at it. I don't often break confidence. I always think that if you can't say it to their face don't say it. Yikes! Thanks for your kind words of encouragement!

  4. I have been told information that I am not allow to share and it can be really hard, especially when I think I am not the only one knowing the same thing but I can't quite work out who knows what!!!

    I am not one for secrets, its too much work:))

  5. Oh what truth you tell! This is a hard area for me, as I have been put into the situation of learning some unflattering information about someone who I respected a lot. What do you do with that? I also have to admit that at times I have found myself a little too curious...to this post I say "ouch!" By the way, I love the look of your blog since you changed it up! I'm not sure why, but I don't think you are coming through my blog list anymore. I need to check why or follow you by email.

    Blessings!

  8. Excellent post Roxy and well said. It is so easy to get caught up in this predicament and want to share something that was told in confidence, but it is always best to refrain from it. Thanks for the reminder...:)Have a blessed week my friend!

    Blessings, Vicky

  9. I feel I can learn so much from you Miss Roxy! Thanks so much for talking about such an important subject. It's so easy to slip into gossip, even without planning to.
