About Me

My photo
I'll be chatting/rambling here occasionally about what i'm making, sewing or what i'm learning walking this life...and all the blessings that have come my way. Please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from You!

My name is Pride

My name is Pride.
I am a cheater.
I cheat you of your God-given destiny...because you demand your own way.
I cheat you of contentment...because you "deserve better than this."
I cheat you of knowledge...because you already know it all.
I cheat you of healing...because you're too full of me to forgive.
I cheat you of holiness...because you refuse to admit when you're wrong.
I cheat you of vision...because you'd rather look in the mirror than out a window.
I cheat you of genuine friendship...because nobody's going to know the real you.
I cheat you of love...because real romance demands sacrifice.
I cheat you of greatness in heaven...because you refuse to wash another's feet on earth.
I cheat you of God's glory...because I convince you to seek your own.
My name is Pride.
I am a cheater.
You like me becauseyou think I'm always looking out for you.Untrue.I'm looking out to make a fool of you.
God has so much for you, I admit, but don't worry...If you stick with me,You'll never know.

Powerful! How very true. Funny how we often think of pride as someone being boastful or just full of themselves. We shake our heads and tsk, tsk. But Beth laid it all out there and held the mirror up for me to see myself in the clutches of Pride!
Thanks, Shy Shelia. You're the best fisherwoman I know! Keep casting the lines on the blog or off!
