An excerpt from a book, SO much truth.


"We can insist on knowing more about our mate's past relationships than we end up being able to handle. What is it about women that makes us so intent on knowing the gritty details of our men's histories? I think it's that whole omniscience-omnipotence complex. We feel like we can't control what we don't know. Don't get me wrong. We need to know vital basics like whether or not they've been married or engaged, slept around, been in jail, battled an addiction, had a track record of unfaithfulness, or left a string of shattered hearts. We'd also better be crystal clear on where they stand spiritually. By all means, let's seek to know their hearts inside and out, but must we force ourselves into the closets of their minds as well?
Details like what he did with whom and how can paint vivid murals on the walls of your mind that jump to life every time you close your eyes. Inordinate curiosity can kill more than the cat. We ask until we harass, then one day we're told. Most of the time the information emerging from our persistent, prurient interest proves very harmful. What's most baffling is the cycle of insecurity it causes. We pry because we are insecure, and then we are more insecure because we pried. God is the only one who can know a person's every thought, every motive, every temptation, and every flaw yet still feel good about Himself. If we want to become secure women of God, we must cease asking questions we can't handle the answers to. 
...In order to receive His grace, we must halt with what we need to know rather than moving from the "tree of life" to "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil" and insisting on seeing more than we can handle. God will grant us the grace to heal if we seek Him, but our memories will bear unnecessary scars for years to come. 
...when our curiosity takes us beyond a knowledge that edifies and fortifies to a knowledge that exposes and terrifies, we might find that we are in for the psychological battle of our lives." 


This is an excerpt from a book I read last year called, So Long Insecurity by Beth Moore. It's not just a book for "insecure women." It's a book for ALL women. Married, single, divorced, young, old, secure or insecure. It's so good and speaks so much truth.

This particular passage was one that I found to hold SO much truth. I believe there are so many women, girls, ladies who can benefit from knowing this. I have used it so many times in my own counseling/ministering to women and girls. It has proved so affective in my own life and marriage.

I am so thankful for the truth in those words.

Guys usually objectify women but females are much less probably to complete precisely the same to men.
Ladies are more psychological although males are less most likely to
become as emotional. What will be the basic psychological variations between
men and women, since given that they are both human beings
they must be very same?

I wish that each one alcoholic drinks had been unlawful.
I actually am a drinker and I have quit a lot
of times. When i appear again I recognize that it doesn't make me really feel as very good as I wished, it fees too considerably, and it has a tendency to direct me to hang out with men and women that aren't great for me.
Also alcohol use only encourages folks to excrement with other medication for example speed.
I think that technically alcoholic beverages must be considered a managed compound similar to something else.

It should not be offered in retailers for the community.
Apart from it only encourages folks to become obnoxious neighbors.
Most neighbors I've experienced that are drinkers are annoying, rude, and noisy. I bet if they were not consuming alcohol they wouldn't
be as irritating or at the least not as undesirable. Confident I'd overlook liquor but I'm able to stand to go with out it.
I also feel precisely the same way about a lot of
prescription drugs even when they may be not being abused still lead to hazardous altering of the persons
cognitive skills. Consider Paxil as an example. I individually wouldn't believe in obtaining right into a auto with somebody which is driving a vehicle if they are on Paxil. I believe in therapies rather than throwing tablets in the issue. Anyway, like I mentioned I think that Alcohol ought to be produced illegal.
