Being Honest

Oh, how pride and stubbornness has kept me at arm’s length from God, and other relationships, on more than one occasion in my life

It can be hard for us to ask for help because we fear rejection, or maybe abandonment, but that isn’t Who God is

We need to admit that we need restoration, to be restored

We need to realise that we have made wrong choices, in order to make the right ones going forward

Yet, we don’t know, what we don’t know, and that is why a relationship with God is fundamental because then, He imparts His wisdom, His grace, and His love into the very depths of our being

For years I thought I needed to make people around me think that I had it all together, but the cliché is actually when we admit that we aren’t whole, we become whole together

Relationships are hard because let’s be honest; humanity is hard work. To love, to know, and to serve one another, is the greatest sacrifice we will ever make to God, simply because that was His offering to us

Friends, it’s time that we got real with God. He already knows the situation we are in, but it’s in that honest and raw conversations, that wholeness begins

Yet, it’s more than that, because it was when I realised that God’s plan for me, was a relationship with others, along with Himself, that I understood the need to be honest with where I am at in life in general. If someone asks how you are – genuinely – don’t just say ”good, how about you?”

Being a Christian doesn’t mean we’re perfect, it just means that we know we need Christ in order to carry on…along with our brothers and sisters, who are on the same journey to wholeness

“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” James‬ ‭5:16‬
