Scripture & A Snapshot

© Karen Kyle Ericson, all rights reserved.

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.
