10.5 years. That’s how long I’ve known Jesus. All these years. I still struggle with misperceptions. I still throw up the wall when I think that other person doesn’t like me. It’s an involuntary reflex. But I catch myself doing it now so that’s something.
Generous is the word the Lord gave me for 2016. Not in the money or stuff connotation. But in the life connotation. In the ‘stop assuming the worst about others because you’re misreading their signals’ kind of way.
I caught myself doing it with a new girl who started just recently. My perception of her silence being I’m not worth her bother. When maybe she’s just shy or quiet.
The generous way is to believe the best in others instead of assuming the worst. And I wonder how long will it be before I believe this? Truly?
This is what I’m thinking about.
