I wanted to share my heart about an encounter I had last Friday with a person I’ve held a, well, really, really big grudge towards for 5 and 1/2 years.
I don’t feel like writing it twice, so here it is.
If you are of the persuasion that the little secrets you hide deep in your heart, you know the dirty little ones that don’t hurt anyone else, are actual secrets, I’d challenge you to think again.
God knows everything. Literally. Every. Thing.
So, if there’s a secret locked up in your life that is holding you back from being all you were intended to be, well, let’s just say God knows about it and He’s not keen on things holding you back from living a full life that glorifies Him.
First He gently nudges us to expose it ourselves. Initially. This is always a better route. But seeing as how the human race is just a tad stubborn, at least my own private sector, who in their right mind would expose our own imperfections or faults willingly?
A few more nudges. Some hints. And then sometimes God just plops us in a situation where we have to face it. A place that calls a spade a spade, and if we’re open to it, and repentant, admitting our sin, He forgives.
God knows. And He is faithful to allow us to go through our crap in order to take part in the good stuff.
