Be of good cheer

I have been critical and cynical of many things. I have been hard on people I don't agree with. In my writings you might have noticed that I have been quite negative many times.

I'm happy that I have been going through an important phase in my life. I have been slowly learning to appreciate the imperfections in others as I see (or have been shown :)) my own more clearly. Criticism has a place but too much of it builds up nobody. Cynicism has no place at all. This season God's love has been disciplining me through some tough moments. I have been rebuked, put to shame, exposed of my pride. At first, I felt numb like I banged my head on a steel post on a cold winter morning. I started to bleed, then the pain came. I was hurt for days and I prayed for help because it was destroying me. God helped me to see good things out of it. I have learnt my lesson. But as if that wasn't enough, after some days my over self-confidence and righteousness was unveiled in public again.

I'm still learning and I'm thankful that God loves me and He's been working ON me. We need not carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. Though the world is filled with evil of every kind; and human beings are more difficult than puppies to go along with, He says, 'Be of good cheer, for I have overcome....' Even our limitations? Ah yes.
