The truth can be a hard pill to swallow, especially when it’s an ugly truth that’s staring back at you from the mirror. As I kick off a new series entitled ‘I Confess’, I start things off with a letter to my husband. Marriage has taught me a number of things and I will always be learning, but nothing has been more clear than the fact that I’m a selfish, selfish sinner, saved only by His grace!
Where is your head at today? Did you wake up feeling refreshed and thankful, or was your heart bogged down by critical thoughts before your feet even hit the floor? We all wake up on the wrong side of the bed sometimes, but it’s up to us to determine whether or not we stay in that gloomy place. We are what we think (Proverbs 23:7) and our mindset establishes the tone for the way we operate.

Saturday was a really hard day. I had high hopes of eating all my daughter’s candy after watching her frolick around as the best sheriff in town at a local church event.
It was supposed to be a great family night. It was supposed to be fun, fun, fun. It was supposed to be a number of things, but was instead a day that left me feeling like a failure in every possible way.
Lately I’ve been meditating on the importance of sharing our testimonies. In my own life I’ve been confronted by the fear of judgment and rejection if people were to know my whole story, the nitty gritty details, and not just the carefully selected excerpts I choose to display. Would they still like and respect me? Would they still want to be my friend? Would the woman I once was change their perception of the woman I am now? I can’t predict the answer to any of these questions, but I can say, with confidence, that I’m no longer that person and it’s all because of my relationship with Jesus.
