14 Days to Finding Meaning in the Mundane: A Time to Vent


Women love to share their feelings.  We can’t help it; it’s how God made us.  But beware who you express your feeling to.  You may find opinions being given to you are from those that may not share your same values.

Finding Meaning

I can recall a time I just needed to vent.  I wasn’t really seeking opinions in the struggles my husband and I were facing at the time, I just needed to express my feelings to someone I trusted.  To my surprise my friend gave me some advice, bad advice, had I taken her advice that could have opened the door to many more problems in my marriage.  I learned quickly that even though venting made me feel better, she wasn’t the friend I could trust venting to.  She didn’t share my faith and her opinions were opinions of our fallen world.

Ecclesiastes 7:23-25  All this I tested by wisdom and I said, “I am determined to be wise” – but this was beyond me.  Whatever wisdom may be, it is far off and most profound- who can discover it?  So I turned my mind to understand and investigate and to search out wisdom and the scheme of things and to understand the stupidity of wickedness and the madness of folly.

Over the years I’ve learned that there are very few people that I can trust, reveal my true self to and whom I know will guide me on God’s word and not their own.   Therefore always vent to the Lord first and seek his wisdom and I guarantee he will make you feel better.

  1. Your words are very true. The writer of Ecclesiastes echo’s them when he says, “It is better to be criticized by the wise than praised by the foolish for the chatter of fools is like the crackling of burning twigs under a pot, a lot of noise but nothing is accomplished. Excessive praise, however, can turn the wise into fools for flattery corrupts the mind.”

    Following the path of the wise is a journey, not a destination and it sounds like you are seeking to stay on the path. May your travels be blessed.
