They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to knowledge of the truth. (2 Timothy 3:6, 7 NIV) When I read this verse, it literally shook my world!! I wasn’t planning on reading anything like this tonight, this made me put my bible down and take a moment. The thing that completely caught me was the two things how the woman is described. New International version calls the woman gullible. King James calls the woman silly- and i can admit I have been both.
Quick to believe lies, fall to deception usually all in the name of love. Woo- yep I have been a silly gullible woman The description goes on to say’ always learning it never able to come to the knowledge of truth’…. Yep again- I is her!!! I can’t tell you how many lessons I’ve had to get a brush up on. How many times I found myself in situations and I KNEW BETTER!!! This was all too real. I don’t want to be one of those women- I don’t want do anything that’s not pleasing to God!! I always believe that everything happens for a reason. I have been talking and praying to God about having a better life. So, I realize there was a reason I happened upon the verse. There is no mistake with God. God is full of love, faithfulness, grace and mercy. Mercy- when I deserved it, yet he didn’t let it happen. Grace, I didn’t deserve that goodness, but he gave it to me anyways. God will always give you the desires of your heart. But with bigger blessings come bigger responsibility. God is letting me know- that where he’s taking me, I can’t do what Ive always done. His grace and mercy has carried me through and while it won’t ever leave me. It’s time for better actions to bring me into that better lifestyle I’ve prayed for. Being silly, following your heart when everything else inside of you is screaming no- those days are in my past. I’ve been silly, I hadnt taken bees the first time around- or even when i saw someone else go through it. I’m not saying from this point forward that I am perfect.;What I am saying is that I may have silly moments, but the silly lifestyle is done.I’m gonna make mistakes and soo will you, however I’m gonna keep going. Once you know better- you do better.
