I am glad to be writing this post today. I am truly happy. It is on this note, that I’d begin my post. The title says it all—nothing is permanent. Neither your pain, your sorrow, your moment of despair, your brokenness. Peril, suffering, oppression, nothing. Absolutely nothing is permanent. Neither is your pride, or folly, wealth, superiority, shrewdness, health, sin or lie.
I was born into this world. Created by a perfect God who loved the imperfect me. I didn’t know Him. He knew me. If you lost me here, and don’t want to understand any of these words, or me, feel free to quit the page right now. For those of you, to who it means a lot, here’s a warm hug. Hope that makes you feel better! Anyway, now that I have your attention, and the unwanted have left let’s do some searching.
Ever felt how artificial people can get? Oh well, I’m pretty sure you know what I am talking about. So my effort is not going to go into explaining what I mean. What I’m going to write is about the truth of God. Words of wisdom from the Bible.
“Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.” -Proverbs 24:1
Why you ask? When all you were inclined to do all this while was wear a plastic smile and wonder how you could achieve what those evil men achieved? That is human nature. You are not alone. I’m not writing this to impress anyone, get more likes on Facebook or have my ego boosted by comments praising this piece. Nope. That is not my intention, at all.
What I do know is God is indeed alive. The one who created this Universe, placed you in a life with breath! He is indeed alive. It only takes that one moment, when suddenly a life where such talks seems to be plain boring, to being the essence of life. I’ve learned through the few years I’ve been blessed enough to live here, that the wise really learn from instruction, while the fools learn from instruction.
“For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.” -Proverbs 24:2
Their heart studieth destruction! Their lips talk of mischief! Yes, and all this while you thought they were friends. Get wise. Identify those lies around you. They’re sly, shrewd, leeches that suck up your joy, and happiness without adding any to your life. You’d feed them, and they’d leave you when you’d be in absolute need.
I just got two verses out for now. More to follow soon, by His grace.
