“If you are discouraged it is a sign of pride because it shows you trust in your own power. Your self-sufficiency, your selfishness and your intellectual pride will inhibit His coming to live in your heart because God cannot fill what is already full. It is as simple as that.”
My roommate was pretty crushed that she wasn’t able to go on a business trip. So I wrote her a card for when she came home just reminding her that she didn’t fail and of all the things she did tonight like teach CCD.
Anyway, she texted me and said it was the best thing that happened to her today and that I’m the best.
I never know what to say to those things. I’m really not the best, and I’m not just saying that. I also wish people were more thoughtful to me.
I have hoped she did the dishes for me as a small thank you. She didn’t and I can’t be mad. I have to think of my services as an end instead of a means to an end. Otherwise I keep falling into the being let down trap. It’s not a pretty trap.
If I’m going to be honest I haven’t done that many service-y things as much lately. Need to start picking that up again.
I was however one of only TWO people to bring in a lunch-y food for the pot luck. Everyone else brought desserts. COME ON PEOPLE. a little effort. My generation sometimes… I just don’t understand. Then when terrible things happen to them they turn around and ask why. Well, let the devil keep playing in your life and let me know how that goes.
Sorry, didn’t mean to turn this into a rant.
Ps. I’m not tired lately AT ALL. It’s in a scary way. Like I can’t tell when I’m tired. I’m mentally wide awake 24/7. The only reason I know is when I try to go to sleep my body is like “ahh sleep”. And falls asleep. Then I wake up WIRED. What is up…? It’s actually really great. I’m nervous function will ruin it. It started after having two days off so maybe that was it but you’d think it would’ve worn off by now.
Ugh. Money. I have a lot of it.
