Nothing is as it seems….

You may despise your boss for being the meanest being on earth; so insensitive, selfish and abusive;
But what you might not know is that he was broken and betrayed as a child;
It is not his fault he turned out that way; his heart is closed to feeling anything;

You may envy the Queen B in your school; she’s the teachers’ favorite; the one every guy wants to be with; the one every girl wants to become;
But one truth no one knows is that, she’s like a timed-bomb ready to explode;
Longing for the love of her parents who care more about accumulating wealth;
She’s all over the place because she’s looking for someone who’d love her for who she is; not for her body or for her social status;
She steps on others’ toes so she can feel good about herself;
She hates to be challenged so she can have a sense of security;
It’s not her fault; she hasn’t no idea of what love is.

You may find it odd that your fiancé is so over-protective; so possessive, so demanding, so insecure; so obsessive, even;
So keen to know where you were, who you were with, who you’ve been talking to;
It may because he saw it happen to his father;
It started with his mum keeping late nights and then one day, she didn’t come back;
He only fears that someone would take you away just like his mum;
It’s not his fault; he doesn’t want his loved one being stolen away from him…again.

Everyone you see walking on the streets or cruising in his ride has issues;
A lot of them you may never know;
Many put on a façade to cover up their fears of the past and the insecurities of the future;
They are praying for someone like you to pay attention to them;
Some try by being mean, loud or being like a human leech;
God brings each person in your way for a purpose;
So pray about them and for them;
It’s no good hating, envying or shunning them;
Pray that God opens your eyes to see their need;
And open your heart to reach out to them.

  1. Great insight, Josey. Seeing through the eyes of Jesus. . . Praise the Lord for His guidance and compassion. There but for His grace go I . . . or is it, “Is that me?”

    You have a heart for the lost and wounded among us. Blessings.

    Well said. It’s the sensitive heart that’s secure in our Father’s personal love for us that can look past the shortcomings and hardness in others and pass God’s Love (which is the healing ointment that we all need) along to them. Thank you again, Joseyphina!

    It’s sad that we do not find out why people do what they do before we judge them. Hope this changes our views on people’ attitudes/behaviour.
