Sometimes the words come out before I realize what I'm saying... I didn't mean it that way, but it sounded so bad. Then there's times when me and my husband just aren't in a happy mood. We sound like a couple of hens bantering at each other. I'm usually the first one to step away and say a prayer, while he zones into the TV.
Then there's other times when everyone else seems to have a harsh word. People I don't even know. I went to the doctor and a woman asked, "Why don't you get a job?"
I told her what I do. And she replied, "You need to get a job."
After I explained my accomplishments, she replied, "Oh! You go girl!"
Critics come from everywhere. To be honest, I'm my own worst critic. Who am I to mock the God who created me?
There's one place I can go to find the encouragement I need. That's the Bible. It's like a refuge for me. God has so much to tell me, guide me with, and lift my spirits. His Word is steady in a world where things seem upside down and backwards. His Word humbles me when I really really need it.
It's always good.
