Understanding Ways

Pinterest

Pressing forward.....always . I won't turn back.

My days are different, are yours? Some days I feel good, even better, but somedays I don't.  Those days are hard to press through, and although people, even good friends say they understand, my question is....do they really?
How can they if they truly have never walked in your shoes?  I've said it myself to others....I understand, but have I really understood the pain, the emotions, the state of others whom I've said that statement too, I understand ? I don't know.
We are all so different, and so alike too. We all understand some of the same things in such different terms.  Don't you think so? Maybe that is the reason, we are commanded not to judge one another from God's word.  Because we can't fully understand others, only God can do that. I don't even understand myself at times.  So why should I even try to understand someone else.  Maybe, "I understand " isn't a good comment for me to make at all. Maybe next time I'll try saying...... I can't understand, but may I pray for you, my friend.

That just might make all the difference!

That's exactly what I was taught by Mom and Dad. They were real big on not judging others and it certainly rubbed of on Me-I so agree with You My Dear Friend.
