Not everything that comes out of our hearts is positive… what is in us… is what comes out of us… the good… the bad… the ugly… so… not ever sure what one is going to get… 🙂 but I still think it is good for us to let out whatever is in there. It is one way for me to discover what is really down there inside of Philip…
I will never forget that feeling I had in the restaurant as I hung up the phone without losing it… about how I had finally overcome anger … Phil you are so wonderful, so disciplined, so under control…. right… ugghh! Two minutes later I have one of my kitchen help by the throat and I am walking him out the back door of the restaurant.
I needed to see that come out of me in order to see my natural man in action… in order to see how impossible it is for Philip to control any of his sin … the only way out has been for me to see it… then respond to the Lord… tell Him I see it…. agree with Him that it stinks… and ask Him to take that out of me…. it works… sometimes permanently… sometimes until I see that it was another layer of onion skin.
“…For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”
So thankful for the freedom He has given me from all that stuff I was held captive by….
