Narcissist Personality Disorder (NPD) is a long-term pattern of abnormal behaviour characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others’ feelings.
This morning, my husband posted this quote below –
I couldn’t help but reply with what I believe to be true because sometimes we get our own hopes up about things that are not even part of God’s plans & then get mad at Him when it doesn’t come to pass. I believe God hears ALL of our prayers – even the ones that are embedded in our hearts but we can’t find the words to say out loud. However, He only answers according to His will, not our own & at His perfect timing. Sometimes His answer is, “Yes”, “No” or “Not Yet” but regardless of what His answer is, we must always ask for His will to be done, not ours. As I commented, I was listening to My Testimony by Marvin Sapp on Pandora & I was encouraged to share one of mine.
Jesus said that many are called but few are chosen. I believe that God changes hearts. It is God that puts the desire in a person’s heart that causes them to want to follow Him. He’s the Author & Finisher of our faith. This can be very encouraging to us who are praying desperately for ourselves or for loved ones.
If I can be honest, sometimes the last thing on my mind when I’m angry or upset at someone who is evil, malicious or just out to get me is to ask God to bless him or her. My initial reaction would be to confront them & speak my mind but I have found that hasn’t always been the wisest thing to do. There have been times when I would act on impulse only to feel horrible & regret it shortly after – other times, my pride & stubborn ways wouldn’t allow me to feel bad for days. Just being honest. I’m sure I’m not the only one who can relate; however, the good thing is that I acknowledge it & it’s not something I’m proud of.
