Being transparent is not always easy and oftentimes it is not desirable. We don’t want others to see our weaknesses, our fallacies, our doubts, or our shortcomings. We don’t want others to see our humanity. Take a moment to imagine the powerful impact we could have on others if just for a moment, we allowed others to take a sneak peek into the realness of our lives.
I’m going to allow you to see through me by sharing one of my journal entries that I wrote quite some time ago. Be Blessed!!
Having a really tough time today. Fighting tears as I write this. Sometimes, you just want to be certain of your value and to know that your presence and your efforts mattered. But then what happens all to often, and I bless God for it, life goes on. When I feel, smell, and hear progression but I don’t actually see progression…that’s when I must hold fast to the calling and direction of God. There are and have been so many times that I felt God had left me. Brought me out to the desert and there was no manna falling from the heavens. There was no water springing forth from rocks. Nothing. This is a difficult time. Not sure what to do next or what’s the best decision. So, I rely upon what I know to be true. I know that Jesus is God. I know that Jesus died for me. I know that Jesus promised never to leave or forsake me. I know that He wants and will provide the best for me. I know the truth. I know that my actions must line up with His will. So, I am going to push through this by relying upon what I know. I know Jesus. I don’t feel or see Him right now, but I know Him. Even better yet, He knows me and I will rely upon Him. Girl…this too shall pass! Get up!!
