Looking out for all the small infractions;
We are Ladies, And you might hear me roar,
But I would rather not roar as it hurts even my own ears.
I think sometimes it seems like the enemy of our souls,
Works overtime to confuse and distort what we are saying!
If we could just be bold enough at times to maybe ask
for a" clarification" when we hear something contrary to what
We believe may be appropriate spoken in any given situation.
I think the enemy hopes to silence us into not asking for clarification!
You may have heard that game where you tell somebody something,
And they in turn repeat it to the next person.
And by the time it gets full circle is being so far off
From the original statement.
. So I think it is using wisdom when we are with a
large or small group of people to watch for being in the
Cross-fire of the enemy using our words against us.
I have observed this from a few different scenarios lately.
This can become very prominent when the holidays are upon us when
All our families and friends get together!
Be wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove...
Don't be a victim!
Rather kindly ask for clarification from the one who spoke!
We can very politely say I am sorry can you repeat that again!
Or you can say "I thought I heard you say"
We must not take so many of these things so personally.
Some people just say silly things!
Some people are just rude!
Some are just oblivious to others feelings!
Some are just not very smart!
Some have no manners!
Some really do have impaired hearing and they are just responding
From not knowing themselves what was truly said!
(This needs grace)
Rise above and be kind and direct;
(When you think you are in a crossfire of what is really
being said and what is really being heard)
We are called to know the truth, and sometimes it wants
to evade us. But we all hear things wrong at times.
I think that is why God tells us to first go to someone alone.
Then, if they will not listen, take a brother with you!
I think hearing incorrectly is not something new that the enemy.
just started using!
Does this resonate with any of you ladies!
I want to keep my peace, and that will require me to distinguish
Truth from a lie;
Facts or feelings...
