As much as some attempt to hide their insecurities... their flaws... essentially their brokenness by covering it up (masking). In their effort to cover it up, if you pay attention you will see what is going on with them by what they do... by their decisions. You see... a wounded person does not have the ability to make wise decisions about anything until he/she first makes a decision to surrender it to the LORD first. If a wounded person continues on in life without surrendering and then covering up that which is killing you on the inside... then your decisions will align with where you are in your walk.It will speak for your state of mind. Is your walk now off course? If that is the case then your decisions will be too because you are making those decisions essentially to fill the void in you. You are trying to fix you by making decisions YOU think will help FIX YOU. Think about people who have been married and divorced several times. They can't seem to hold on to a marriage. Why? Because they have yet to look at the source of their problems and that source is in the mirror. When it doesn't work out... that person immediately blames the other person. But the truth of the matter is... you made the decision to spend your life with the person you now say doesn't have it together. The reason you did not see it in the beginning is because you did not have it together and you still don't. You are selfish and self-righteous. A broken person can not make wise decisions unless that person completely surrenders to GOD. When one does that he/she will see him/herself the way GOD sees him/her. And you will be able to see your brokenness and all those messed up decisions you made that had predictable outcomes. Allow GOD to fix you then you can make wise decisions based on a strong foundation (JESUS). I promise you... you will be happy you did.
Ignore this and continue to show the world who you really are by making unwise decisions. Your decisions will speak more about you then what you actually say or how you try to present yourself. All a wise person has to do is sit back, be quick to listen and slow to speak and watch you do you. That person will be able to discern who you are by what choices you make. Your state of mind is always on front street even when you think you are controlling it. That is the deception that has gotten many into trouble. Their mind is so deceived that they think they are actually deceiving others when in fact, they are deceiving themselves and letting the world know who they REALLY are without them even knowing it.
The word tells us you will know a tree by the fruit it bears. I tell you friends.. what is your tree bearing? What type of decisions are you making? Why did you make those decisions? And are you any better today from making those decisions? You have to be honest with yourself. You only know how much you are hurting on the inside. You can tell me whatever, but your decisions will tell the truth about what is going on on the inside.
