People tell you how kind and GODLY you are, you do "good" things for people, and even GOD has used you to make HIMSELF known to others. I have to ask myself; have I examined myself? Have I exercised strict scrutiny over my heart, compassion and conduct with the HOLY SPIRIT? Have I compared myself with proper "severity" and "honesty" to GOD'S precepts? 1 Corinthians 11:31, "But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged." No matter what others say, if I cause someone to "stumble", if I break GOD'S heart, if I am not who GOD needs me to be for HIM; then I AM NOT WHO I THINK I AM! IT'S TIME FOR ME TO GO AND BE ALONE WITH HIM, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES, TO EXAMINE MYSELF! PAINFUL AND HUMBLING, BUT THIS TOO CAN BE A JOYFUL TIME IN HIS LOVE!
