His eyes were dark and hazy, full of anger and hatred. I could see clear through him. Why did they all think that he was such a kind person? I never did understand why he was able to dupe this entire town. Life here in Waverly has always been about community, helping each other, being there when tragic times where ahead. He saw the innocence of this town. He saw the kindness and the naivety within the eyes of these people. The blindness they had, the corners where darkness could hide. He was able to blend in and hide among them all, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. As for me, I could see him. I could perceive his dark heart. I wanted to provoke him, make him come out of hiding. They couldn’t say it was just my imagination then!
I wrote this after reading a writing prompt on Quotesnack.com
I love to write. I enjoy letting the free flow out…
I write because I can!! :0) No seriously, I’m not the greatest with grammar or with punctuation. As you know if you have been reading for any length of time I like to use a lot of …. (dot, dot, dots )
If I didn’t have a spell check most of my didnts donts and Its …would look like that! LOL
But I don’t write for those things to be perfect…
I write to share ME.
To share the hardships, difficulties, excitements, joys and fears, my imagination, dreams …warts and all.
In this writing exercise I did on Quotesnack.com …. it reminded me how much I love to tell a story with my words, to be creative and make a little piece of something come to life…sparking imagination!!
In that paragraph I think it is easy for the reader to think of a time when you may have felt the way the storyteller did. Do you remember a time when you knew, that you knew, that something was not right….and yet no one would hear you. It seemed as though everyone around you was totally taken in by a person who was less than honest or a loved one was falling for someone who was all wrong and you could see the road ahead. ????
We all may have been there at one time or another, if we have any discernment at all.
Do you remember that PUSH inside you that wants you to PROVOKE that other person to show their hand to lay out their cards….wanting them to come clean because you know that you are RIGHT!!!
1 Corinthians 4:5
Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God.
We may be able to see the heartache….the hurts….the tragedy….the sadness in the end.
But we are asked to judge nothing before the appointed time….some things just need to play out.
Trusting that God will bring Good out of what is meant for evil…
It may be that the situations are meant for learning….
Lessons in patience, kindness, loving our enemy, strengthening our stand, learning not to carry the burden alone.
TRUST IN THE LORD FOR HE IS GOOD AND HIS MERCY ENDURETH FOREVER!!!
In the end it all comes to light…… what was and what will be.
My past isn’t the prettiest. I was one that some may have said ” HEY!! You are not going in the right direction!” Things I went through I wouldn’t want to relive, but on this side of knowing the Lord…I wouldn’t change a thing!! The God of Heaven designed my path so that I would walk straight to Him. I chose Him when I met Him. Those things are my history…my where I’ve been on the road to where I am. It’s all HIS STORY now!!
