Beauty Stain Series - Pride



"Leave it I will do it, if I could I would do everything, these people don’t do anything right, I wish there was two of me."
Or:
"Who does she think she is to talk to me this way, I wonder if she has looked below, poor thing, she has more defects than all of us together, it doesn’t matter what she says, she’s ridiculous."
Typical phrases of Miss Proud, throw the red carpet, because the superior is going to pass.
God has a special way of dealing with those who are proud; you saw what happened to the devil, right? His exalted heart began to feel like God and caused rebellion. God cast him out; there was simply no more room for him.

That's what the proud do, always creating problems and believing they are better and more capable than anyone else, they believe they are superior in spirituality, holiness and ability.
Pride besides being a big stain in your beauty, it seriously compromises your life with God.
A proud person is not always the one who has their nose up high or that will confront you directly. Sometimes she is calm, delicate, apparently there is nothing wrong, but shows off her pride in her attitudes, decisions, or within her.

This defect is difficult to be detected by the individual, because since she is proud, it means that she lacks humility, and therefore will not accept someone to point at her defects.
When someone wants to help her, telling her the truth, right away she thinks she's being humiliated and wronged.
Still, recognizing it, I think she won’t stop being proud overnight, it will be a process, the person must make an effort, as the situations are happening, she will see how she reacts and will overcome pride, she will have to fight hard against her flesh.
It will be an internal struggle, but if you're determined you will achieve.

Make a reflection of your inner self and see if you've had proud attitudes or thoughts, get rid of this evil immediately. By doing so leave your comment, it will be the first step to show your willingness to change, it will be humble of you.

Pride destroys everything and it harms the spiritual life. I need to examine myself everyday, thank you.

Pride is horrible in a person's character. I am learning to walk on my knees always (to Humble myself before God)because i can be proud sometimes...
And when we are Humble God really Helps us to change any situation. But with Pride we will be stuck.

Hello Mrs Tania

Great message, and if I may add; pride also does not allow growth of any kind, because one who's proud like you mentioned cannot be corrected.

Thanks for sharing :-)

This used to be me, I used to tell you where you can stick it, both in church and world. I would tell you I have been in the church for donkeys, of years you can't tell me nothing. Well you know what happened......

This is me at the moment but I am investing in myself to change. I did alot of things for God not realizing that whilst doing I somehow became proud. Right now, God is dealing with me through situations, difficult situations in order for my innerself to be transformed. It is hard, but I am sure what is ahead waiting on the side for me is Great. Thank you Mrs Tania, your Blog little by little is helping me to find God. Thank you.

pride is the downfall of man in fact it takes us no where but it is a driving wheel satan uses to put us down.
we should strive to be humble so God may be able to use our lives

I think pride is an act of the flesh therefore it comes to everyone but we have to reject it . That is why we must always watch our attitudes.

Briony Bangura said...

I use to think like that before-"I wish there were two of me" or, "why can't everyone think like me." Lol I have to laugh looking back at it, proud people look so foolish! I use to be very proud and every now and again pride tries to consume my heart but I refuse to go back to that state. Everyday I will continue to analyse my wrong, as I cannot afford to throw away my relationship with God because of pride. How sad aye.

Pride destroys the spiritual life of any person,we must humble ourselves before God and accept when we corrected for something,because through these corrections we grow spiritually.

Laura mendes said...

Boa noite dn Tania tem uma canção que diz assim:... quero rever os meus erros e não mais comete-los, sei que não vai ser tão facil, mais dificil é continuar no erro e ficar pra taz...." Temos que estar dispostos a mudar sempre que necessario, com humildade pra aceitar isso, assim agradaremos nosso PAI..

Dear mrs Tania
pride is our downfall because it makes you think that you are better than the others and you don't accept correction because it makes you think that you know everything. It's a poison that destroys our connection with God. Lucifer was the Angel of light because of his pride he became the devil; the represent the darkness. the Bible says in the book of Isaiah 2:11 "The eye of the arrogant will be humbled and human pride brought low ; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day."

Hello Mrs. Tania,

I read your article, and as I re-read it I started to list the things you said that either are close to things I have said or thought. As I am reading them one sticks out, no two sticks out. I don't think or use those words exactly but they words and thoughts I do have are pretty close. It seems that the other things I have been told or accused of doing recently. Sometimes I don't mean to behave in a certain way but I do, and alot of times I feel humiliated and wronged or better misunderstood. At times this has been the case but I am sure my reactions where either wrong or made things worst. I have not been able to see this until recently. I find myself not accepting when I am wrong and try to justify why I did or said that, or why the other person was wronger than I. HOWEVER I see that no matter what I am not perfect I know i hate to be corrected. When i check myself I see i am wrong more times than I want to admit. I even see that I put myself in certain situations. One thing is for sure its not enough to say I am working on it for me, and it is so much easier said than done. I find myself always in situations so I have started to look search to see if a certain attitude is right. Its like a trap if I dont handle it right it will turn into a problem but if i handle it right which normally only happens if in that moment i remember to pray and ask for help then it will come out right. Truth be told I can see I wont say learning yer because I dont think I have learned I am just starting to see that even when I am right I still am wrong because I wont shut up and stop defending myself self so I still end up being wrong, but my biggest problem isnt even this it is I try to handle things myself, trying to show someone they are wrong I usually end up mad and then saying something stronger trying to make them see my point then its a wrap I lost or lose because I could not just be quiet!!!!! This is where i have the biggest fight,
