Pride and Proverbs // Amazing Tangled Grace

““If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you” (Proverbs 25:21-22).

Lady Catherine de Bourgh’s formal table: Pride and Prejudice (2005).

One night, the Holy Spirit spoke to me; in fact, I can still hear His gentle words spoken in that brief moment. I see now that the specific way in which the Lord would come to humble me was not what I thought that night, and not so that I would be burdened with excessive sorrow or shame, but rather, He humbled me for my good. Although I still feel as though my pride might kill me, in truth, I recognize now God clearly working in what happened the following morning. The Spirit led me to Proverbs 25:21-22: “If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.” The apostle Paul is referring to this passage in Proverbs in Romans 12:20 when he tells believers to overcome evil with good, by repaying every offense or discourtesy with a kindness. The whole heaping “burning coals on his head” isn’t nearly as punitive as it may seem. Turns out when someone needed to borrow some live coals to restart their fire, giving them hot coals in a pan to carry home (on his head) was an act of kindness, not revenge, which should surely characterize the children of God.

“And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, ‘My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son’” (Hebrews 12:5-6). When I read words like discipline or chastens, I first thought of punishment, but in these passages, I understand that the words reference training, which includes: instruction, discipline, correction, and warning. Other times discipline is a result of wrongdoing, yet no less encouraging. “Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.” (Revelation 3:19). Regardless of the exact circumstances in which brings discipline, whether it be wrongdoing or not, the common theme is God’s love. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:1-2). Moreover, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8).

Throughout 2019, I have wanted to give up, walk away from places and circumstances, and from people with whom, God has placed me, but then I find myself again led to passages like Proverbs 3:11-12 where God warns against losing courage under His rebuke. Therefore, even if one day I find that I need to part ways so as not to stumble, or God leads me down other paths, the parting must be done so in peace, not in resentment. Take Paul and Barnabas (Acts 15:35-41), I doubt their split was rooted in pride, personal ambition, or hurt feelings, and oh my, is that ever a difficult lesson, because unlike Paul and Barnabas that day, I find myself often struggling with all three, not that I am comparing myself to Paul or Barnabas. I am painfully aware of the enemy’s schemes, and I do not wish to be outwitted by him (2 Corinthians 2:11), at least not any more than I already have been. “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps” (Proverbs 16:9). I’ve set my course for 2020, so now to see where God directs my steps.

A Blessed and Joyous Christmas // Croatia, the War, and the Future

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life“. (John 3:16)

With profound gratitude for the amazing support I have received via this blog I wish you all a blessed, joyous and very merry Christmas! May the New Year of 2020 bring you success and content in all that you do! Ina Vukic

Come, good people, to the stable
Hasten to the manger-side
Come, behold the Infant holy
Come and see the blessed Child
Come and follow, one and all
Come see him lying in the stall
For he is born, the Child divine

Faithful shepherds watching ever
O’er their flocks by dark of night
Wondering, fearing, tidings hearing
‘Mid a glorious, shining light
Music ringing, Angels singing
News of joy and comfort bringing
He is born, the Child divine

(Sally DeFord)

wolves // House of Heart

 In the state between sleep and wake

traversing birth and death

there is the faintest hint of earthy candles

macabre dreams interrupted by the

strophe of sonnets, a sensation of

spilling pearls like tiny moons falling

through my open palm.

At the boundaries I find you

not your spirit or rose tinged snow

but flesh and bone.

I am sleeping less now

roused by the wing beats of boreal owls

circling an ancient Cypress,

their knife edge talons entwined in sprays

of silky moss clinging to knotty branches.

Fitful wind gusts burst through barriers of

creaking walls vibrating my hemispheres into

consciousness. A celestial tapestry of recollection

lifts me over the valley to a moonlit hillside

of sweet lea where a silver wolf lies down beside me.

He is the scent of golden wheat and

his eyes are the color of the eastern sky.

Famous Poets ~ // WISDOM

This was the gods’ god, The leashed divinity,
Divine divining rod
And Me within me.

By midnight tower and tree
Its shadow on the ground
Throw and in the darkness she
Whose weapon is her wound

Fends off the knife, the sword,
The Tiger and the Snake;
It stalks the virgin’s bed
And bites her wide awake.

Her Bab-el-Mandeb waits
Her Red Sea gate of tears:
The blood-sponge god dilates,
His rigid pomp appears;

Sets in the toothless mouth
A tongue of prophecy.
It speaks in naked Truth
Indifference for me

Love, a romantic slime
That lubricates his way
Against the stream of Time.
And though I win the day

His garrisons deep down
Ignore my victory,
Abandon this doomed town,
Crawl through a sewer and flee.

A certain triumph, of course,
Bribes me with brief joy:
Stiffly my Wooden Horse
Receive into your Troy.
