And then Baaaaam!!
PRIDE comes crashing down. And that once indestructible person that you were ends up shattered in a million pieces. When that happens, there is an unexplainable pain that we feel. Emotions take over even if we think we are being objective in our approach.
But it is in these moments that truly define us. Do we accept what just happened to us? Do we allow it to consume us?
I've had countless times when I found myself in situations like that. Yes. Many times I actually believed I had it all just to find myself in the darkest of dark pits buried in my own web of sinful beliefs and eating the bitter truth of pride's consequences. Being the emotional person that I am, I see to it that I cry my heart out -- puffy eyes, sore throat and all, and it is on those occasions that I find myself down on my knees crying out to God. Humbling oneself before another is never easy more so if its before the Almighty one who you can never escape with your excuses. Remember, pride. But to cry out to Him must be the most relieving feeling ever.
Today I am looking for that relief.
Help me, O LORD my God! Save me according to your steadfast love!
