It happens fast.
Faster than I can prevent it.
Karma is a noun and is defined as “a result of a person’s actions as well as the actions themselves”(Wikipedia)
My personal definition of Karma: “it keeps me humble“...I always need it... and I need it fast.
So fast that usually my actions haven't even had a chance to occur before Karma has occurred. Yup. I am loved. whaaa? That doesn’t make sense. I know. It doesn’t but it sure works. So let me explain why Karma being in my life shows me just how loved I am:
You see I have a propensity to be really big-headed. It doesn’t mean that I don’t think that I am pretty. It is ok to know and believe you are beautiful and gorgeous. It is actually really important for everyone to believe that about themselves because God Made us. But I digress.
Back to me being big-headed. It means that I have an easy propensity to say things like this quietly in my head without ever a soul knowing it:
”Huh?? She was engaged but they broke up before the wedding? I would never do that.”
”Who would ever have two dogs!? No common sense. Look how busy she is trying to handle those two dogs.”
“Louis Vuitton bags are so ugly. What would people buy them?”
”I would never live in an old house!”
”Why do people waste money on Starbucks”
and there are many many more of similar thoughts that my pride has made me utter In my head.
At this point for anyone who knows me personally, you see what I mean. For those of you who don’t know me yet, let’s just summarize, shall we...
Been engaged three times, first marriage ended in divorce.
We have have two big dogs..and a cat.
I love and own LOUIS VUITTON bags.
Our first home was built in 1930.
I love Starbucks.
So why do I say I am loved? Well! I’m so glad you asked! Because Karma comes fast. And I am grateful. The Lord knows that I need this super fast delivery to keep me real.
The best part is that Karma makes me focus on things that are “pure, beautiful, noble, right”:
”My brothers and sisters, 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, Bible)
If I don’t do this, which WILL happen since I am human, then God sends in the Karma. But He doesn’t want me to be a perfect religious robot. He delights in me and all my shortcomings. In fact, the more I realize my need for Him, the lighter my burden becomes.
So really it’s a win-win with this Karma and me.
Thank you for listening.
As always, Look with Intention
