Where He Makes All Things Beautiful

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 are too full of you to forgive.
I cheat you of holiness…
because you refuse to admit when you are 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…

Strangers who don’t know I only get First Saturdays to Second Saturdays a month with my son, so when you see me in the streets with my little one and wanna say, ‘It’s so good seeing a father doing his job, spending that quality time…’ Don’t. Because I’m being robbed. Robbed of the greatest gift. Forced to live through pictures on an iPhone that recognize the touch of my lips more than they do my fingertips.”

“There are two people yo…

Quote

“There are two people you’ll meet in your life. One will run a finger down the index of who you are and jump straight to the parts of you that peak their interest. The other will take his or her time reading through every one of your chapters and maybe fold corners of you that inspired them most. You will meet these two people; it is a given. It is the third that you’ll never see coming. That one person who not only finishes your sentences, but keeps the book.”
