Just to say it – I dont want to hide. Anyone else afraid to say what you think?
I dont want to speak to tell people what to do. I want to speak to help share a perspective. To help others think through frustrating problems and how I’ve found peace again. I am more concerned with how my heart is toward people who God loves, than my being right in my stance about things.
Jesus had more to stand on to say, “THIS IS TRUTH!” Yet, He is truth and He chose people and to reconcile.
Is there a place we can stand where we can stand in what we believe without alienating people?
Matt. 7:24-27 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
Just a little context: We cant just be all guilt and shame or all pride and arrogance. There has to be a place to stand that is kind!
My motto is Fearless, Faithful, Forward! This motto helps me when I am afraid to know what to do – it acts like a guide! When afraid I choose to be fearless, when in doubt be faithful to do what I hear God saying, when stuck keep moving forward. So… here we go!
Thanks for listening,
