To sense that someone is insincere,
Is a way of protecting us from harm.

Some of us believe what's being said,
only to find out it's being said to other maids.

Words like from a script,are being used,
To believe them,and finding out they are
"insincere" makes you feel abused.

So True

True Barb ~ somone's insincerity can cause people so much hurt that they do feel abused. There are all kinds of abuse, not just the obvious. Good write.

your words will grab a hold of some one..

Barb, your words serve as a steppin' stone to a naive heart, Gods truth controls us. bein' insincere, so much like lyin' damages a soul, separates us altogether from God, such deception , allows those seekin' self pleasure to align with the spirit of lies , like givin' the devil a piece of your heart. don't ya agree? such a high wage to pay .'hidin' but they will be found".

Their are always people watching and waiting for someone who is vulnerable because of what we go through. and if we listen to our instincts that is God telling us beware. I learned the hard way .no one told me. So I am letting people know if you know something isn't right, that's god warning you LISTEN and PROTECT yourself from pain. Thanks Terrie you understand what I'm trying to say, don't you?

God ,sources to protect the meek comes from you...

someone too vulnerable believes the thief of a heart, thats when friends step in , not allowin' friends become prey,for another day. they share what needs to be said. if they were the last to know .it would paralyze their heart so much more. sweetie, keep sharin' the wisdom and knowledge that your soul speaks.

sometimes we have to stand up ...

and protect our friends from , those that think that they are Gods gift to whom ever they prey upon..Heaven and everythin' that is Holy, knows.. if i or a friend knew somethin', more than anything i'd tell them and most of all i'd want to save them/me from wastin' life/time in a relationship,that has no future. one thing i caint stand is a "Lie" big or small, they are my Biggest enemy in my life..i trust you, if you knew somethin' you'd tell me right? : ) i'd want to know....

I don't know anything

My thoughts and instinct is all I know for sure and I listen to them ,now.It may seem cold to some but its my protection, against vultures. Only ones who have given me time to trust them earns my trust to open up. Just because I get compiments or nice things said if I haven't had time to know if it is sincere, then I leave I hate being pressured to do anything,you too ?

thanks terrie

My opinions get me in trouble. When what I think
might help. and others see it as interfeering.I'm glad you see me as trying to help others not preach.
