Ripped Sock


When you put on a sock that has a little tear, it’s true no one can see it since your foot is hidden inside of your show. The problem is that you know that your sock is ripped and that bothers, if for any reason you need to take your shoe off, you’re going to be very embarrassed.
The same happens with the little bad things that a person accumulates in her interior, like hate, bad eyes, jealousy, envy. It’s inside, hidden, nobody else can see it, but that person knows that all that is inside of her and it bothers.
Well, sooner or later, all that will be exposed, it will appear in your life through your fruits, and with it will follow shame.
There is only one way to avoid that, don’t allow those emotions to take up space in your heart. Remind yourself that all those things will endanger your spiritual life and they will only be a stumbling block in your life.
“Blessed is the one who always trembles before God, but whoever hardens their heart falls into trouble.” Proverbs 28:14

Wow, this is so true Mrs Tania
Sometimes we appear to be so holy before others forgetting that God, who gives us salvation knows all these bad things that we do. Its better when we deal with pain of changing now and later reap salvation than to live a lie and later reap shame and destruction.

Dear Mrs Tania

It so true as people we ignore what are the holy spirit says and act holy before other people forgetting the wrong we did.In doing so we putting our salvation at risk cause it comes with a sacrifice and it is personal.

I am blessed by this very much

What counts is what is in the heart.

Sometimes we are content and not worried because we are not expecting to remove our shoes but we can be caught by surprise. We can't be so content when it comes to those internal issues that are wrong because we can be caught with them at any moment and plus, God sees what nobody sees anyway.

Hello its very true. Thank you for reminded me that we need to be very careful on how we act because sometimes we forget that God sees all things. We cannot hide anything from God sooner or later it will be reveled.

Thank you for this reminder Dona Tania. None of us are perfect and sometimes we may "seem" that way to others, but God KNOWS the true US, and who matters more than He does? It is great to maintain a great reputation, but we need to remember as long as we are on this Earth, we will ALWAYS need to change something about ourselves and we have to be willing to and not hard-hearted about it, always.

Thank you Mrs Tania nothing can be hidden from God.My interior is most important than my exterior.I must always be very watchful of the kind of feelings or thoughts I let myself to have.

This is true, sometimes these little things that can be sown inside, for example a seed of hate, we can just disregard it as nothing, but sooner or later when we least expect it, it will be revealed, the hole in our sock will be shown and it will be very embarrassing. We must watch and pray at all times, and keep our hearts clean.

It is true,that the little things that we keep inside our heart can not only impede us from spiritual growth but most importantly from receiving our salvation, so its important to examine and clean our hearts.

Dear Mrs Tania,

It is so true because we can never hide from God what we have inside, and if we do not remove from our heart or stop these emotions to take over, sooner or later it will be revealed through our fruits in life. It will always impede us to serve God 100%.

God bless you.
Tania

Every time the devil trys to speak in my ear saying, your not as good, talented or able to accomplish great things, at the same time I bind him and do not permit that those emotions come into my heart.

Stephanie Michelle Gamboa said...

This is very true. And it is why we can't live by appearances. What is on the outside must reflect the inside, so the best way to be worry free is to remain clean on the insides, not allowing any evil or negativity to get in the way!

zimasa said...

Wow,this is the most important part that many people don't notice or they keep on ignoring it but its true that it will appear through the fruits of his/her life

thanks Mrs Tania
WE CAN HIDE YOURSELF IN THE EYES OF MANY PEOPLE NOT IN THE EYES OF GOD.

Nancia London said...

Mrs Tania its so easy to keep things especially things of the heart hidden. I was able to hide things so perfectly that I would even forget about it.I would remember if someone spoke the persons name or something similar happens and it would trigger . I have seen that this brings me no where spiritually and though its hard am trying and giving my all to empty out my heart totaly.
Thanks alot for this message.

Ali said...

That was a great example Mrs Tania!when someone adds and adds more of those little things it wont be able to be covered anymore because the person will eventually have enough and explode everything that accumulated for so long, one has to becarful with this because it could interfear with our most important goal the salvation of our soul! thank you this really helped!!

Griselda Rodriguez said...

Its true what you say Ms Tania what ever we have in the inside sooner or later it will come out by our fuits.We have to keep a clean heart so like that we will always have good fruits, fruits from the spirit, so the real us can always come out. :)

Malena Lopez said...

I am going through this right now...I pray about it, I talk to the pastor and Senora Sara about it and it helps when I just use my inteligence. I acknowledge these feelings, which I know I shouldnt have, if I want to be a true Women of God. The hole in the sock is a great analagy...as you walk around you have it weighing on your mind...its always there...being scared if I may have to take my shoe off...how embarassing would that be.

Nancy said...

Thank you for the example.

What you're saying is so true...
Sometimes that little tear we have on our sock starts to grow and grow until that little tear becomes a huge whole. Our life becomes this way as well, when we hold a little grudge on someone we don't really notice it . But sooner or later it becomes hate and anger towards that person.We have to decide that its better to get a new pair of socks than to keep one with just a little tear that's going to bring us to shame and embarrasment.

Tks Alot :)

Mariella Antialon said...

I think that this comparison between the sock with a little hole and the our "little bad things" is very helpful for us to understand. Many times people think that envy, bad thoughts, etc. are "little" things and that no one is perfect and is ok for people to feel these kind of things. Yet we know it will affect our spiritual life if we do not get rid of them.

Mokgadi said...

That is so true we cannot give space to such things as hatred, anger and the like otherwise your delaying yourself and taking yourself back to where you were instead of keeping your self clean and maintaining your salvation and feeding more of your spirit so you can always be pleasing before the eyes of God.

Thank you Mrs Tania.

A heart which is full of the Lord, doesn't have room for any other feelings. We must feed ourself
of the spirit, so there won't be room for the devil sneak in. God Bless.

Natasha Pais said...

I agree.. And alot of the times people try and cover up what they are feeling inside until they cant hide no more. But we cant use our heart we need to use our intelligence.

Its never right to hide things from God, yes we know that God knows everything but that doesnt mean we shouldnt tell Him what weve done wrong, our secrets or what not. But we HAVE to tell Him Hes the one that helps us, we have to be humble to be lifted up.

Adriana said...

The truth is that although we can hide for a moment our mistakes and sins from the surrounding world, we cant hide from the all-powerful God. He is omniscient and knows our every moves. We must be watchful in every way possible. If we do have the hole in our sock we must realize that we must surrender ourselves to God and not be afraid to acknowledge that fault by asking for forgiveness.

There's nothing hidden that won't be revealed. The Bible says this; therefore, it is true. No matter how hard we try to cover up who we really are, it will be shown along with our shame.

Tina said...

We have to realize that what is hidden will be revealed so it s better that we avoid such situations where we have to be constantly having to live in fear of having tom reveal what we were hiding all along . The secret is to avoid such situations all in all and that way we will nothing to hide and nothing to be afraid of.

God bless

Tina

this is true because when you have something bad [spiritually]you feel bothered the same with your sock you will feel bothered but like if we have our shoe on we would'nt feel that embaresed but if they tell you to take your shoe off you will be REALLY EMBERESSED.
