Let’s Be Honest

We tend to think that to be an honest person, we must air all our laundry out to everyone. This is not true! ‘Everyone’ is not going to respect your ‘everything’ ‘every time’. I found this out the hard way.

Being a transparent person by nature, I tend to put a little too much out there too often. Seldom is my regret in this area more than just an annoyance. But recently, I took something that I had been hiding for a very long time and ‘laid it all out there’. I confided things I shouldn’t have to people I shouldn’t have and while God was still able to use bad for good, I was very awakened by the chaos I created for myself.

I have learned since then, that sometimes the enemy makes us feel like frauds simply through us using discretion. He is a sly and slimy devil, so why we are constantly shocked that he broke through our defences never ceases to amaze me. I am shocked by it all the time.

It’s not that God doesn’t want us to be true in our life experiences but there is a time and place for everything. My almost filter less mind, verbalize through my big mouth, sometimes gets me into trouble but I am learning to handle myself much more intentionally. It’s not just about letting it rip as much as letting it light. If it is not sharing the light of Jesus, we really need to use caution in whom we confide in.

I am extremely grateful to have such great people surrounding me that I can fellowship with and celebrate life with. I am even more grateful to have just a couple people that I can truly confide in. I know what I tell them is not only safe but that they will be honest with me when I seek council.

This is such a blessing and I am so glad to know that being discreet is not the same thing as being dishonest. One thing we can count in is that God already knows everything and no matter what we have to say, He is ALWAYS the right answer.

Don’t ever let the enemy consume you and when you are standing there in shock that he broke through, look up and ask God to refresh your spiritual GPS and just get right back on track.
