Did I say more than I should’ve?
Did I say more than I wanted to?
You see, last week I posted something on my Twitter that is more
than I ever say about a specific topic… TMJ…
and it’s caused me pain for over 15 years.
Lots of people have this. It’s not embarrassing.
It’s just that I don’t talk about it much.
Complaining bothers me.
And I don’t want to be a complainer!
But last week God’s Word kept pointing at something inside of me
it sickened me… and God continued to bring up… pride.
Pride has various forms.
My problem? Somehow taking pride in not letting people
know that I’m in pain… being tough enough to tough it out.
There’s nothing wrong with “not blabbing” about your situations…
that’s probably wise. But finding satisfaction or a form of
accomplishment in NOT telling it cuz it makes ya feel tough…
well, we can see where that got me… confession.
First, repenting of pride & asking Jesus to forgive me.
Secondly, tweeting about it… and now having to add a little more info
so that my pride is dashed.
If this is completely confusing to you.. that’s OK.
Just know that NO one is tough ALL the TIME!
That everyone needs prayer!
And pride creeps into the strangest areas… so beware…
and be quick to repent & make it right.
There. I’ve said it.
Don’t expect me to complain about it… but it’s no longer a secret, either.
Jesus is totally able to heal me in a second… but He also can use this
weird jaw problem to form my character.
And I’m OK with that, too!
I love JESUS!
