….for everytime I lived my life contrary to what I believe
for the times when my overinterest in someone gave way to gossip
for the inner thoughts I had about being better than someone because I made “better” choices in my own mind
for not being gracious because I thought our paths would never cross again
for forgetting that He loves you too and is working on you just like He’s working on me
for not telling you about Him and offering you something life giving when I saw your need
for not speaking up when I witnessed wrong doing
for acting in a way that left you questioning who I really was and what I really believed in
for ignoring the nudge to embrace you and ask how your day is….
…. I am guilty of all these things and more.
I have been heavily convicted in my heart the last few weeks about all of these things. It has made me more mindful of how I am viewed by others, and therefore how God in my life is portrayed by myself and my actions… or inactions.
I’ve always hated the phrase “when you know better, you do better” because I know it’s true…. and I naturally have a hard time doing what I know I should do as opposed to what I want to do.
I sense a big time of change ahead for me. Mostly change in my character and how I choose to live my life…. seen and unseen.
