steve spoke the most amazing message i’ve ever heard yesterday morning. i can honestly say that i have never been so moved during a “ sermon”.
here is who i am...
- i am a fake.
- i am a liar.
- i am selfish.
- i am bitter.
- i just found my bible...but the thing is...i didn’t even realize i had lost it.
- i hate kids.
- i need a pill to get me through the day without crying.
- i gossip.
- a piece of my purity is gone.
- i am two-faced.
- i have an extremely dirty mouth.
- i don’t trust...anyone.
- i am an avoider.
- i don’t have a mind of my own.
do you love me?
i know that i am blessed. and that there is a number of people that god has put in my life that i could tell these things to and they would still love me. but there is also a number of people who would curl their noses and walk away disgusted.
“ make this your common practice : confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed...” - james 5:16
steve used this verse. and i love it...and i know this is how we should be living. but at the same time...i can’t help but think that it’s impossible. we are human. and whether we realize it or not...we judge one another...everyday.
i am hoping with all my heart that one day we can see each other for who we really are...and love anyways. because that’s what god does everyday.
