Doing everything right
Is no guarantee
That everything will turn out right
You can try to communicate as transparently as possible.
You can trust everyone around you.
You can give them every benefit of the doubt you can think of.
You can apologize for everything you see you’ve done wrong.
You can be kind.
You can let a lot slide.
You can keep your mouth shut.
You can struggle to beat down your temper.
You can throttle your pride.
You can choose to smile and see the best as your soul is bleeding internally.
You can respond to evil with good.
You can take the hits and try to speak gracefully.
You can ask questions and try your best to understand the other parties.
You can give them their space.
You can submit despite the fear and confusion.
You can speak honestly and calmly.
You can deal with your anger before you sleep.
You can give every respect that is due and avoid displaying your rage.
You can forgive and give more chances.
You can follow all the advice you can dig up.
None of it matters.
There is no winning.
You will never be good enough.
Your Heavenly Father is the only Good. You doing everything right won’t make anything right. While struggling to lead a life as He leads you will not guarantee healthy human relationships, realize that’s not the point.
Doing everything His Way
Is only a guarantee
That you will be close to Him.
