Things I would not believe had I not lived them.
Much too much to go into a great deal of detail on the blog, and suffice to say for a multitude of reasons I cannot go into much detail. However, I will say that there are some behaviors for which I have a very low tolerance.
There was a time in life I would have loved the gossipy things. At this point, the gossipy things are useless. I've no time for them.
I am considering this more gentle nudging that I am moving in the right direction with this larger plan of mine, and am using this frustration as my fuel source, especially days like today when it seems like everything is crashing down on me.
I have this printed at my desk, and believe me I am looking at it more and more every day:
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior." Isaiah 43:2-3
I try to not be too preachy of a person, however this is something I cling to, particularly in times like these.
And until I can divulge more, just imagine the most ridiculous scenario you could possibly imagine. Multiply that times ten and you might be close to where I sit.
