A quick lesson on the whole “being honest”… one of the things that this month has afforded me is a good look at my weaknesses and fears.
And *that* is an excellent thing.
- I can’t pray over something if I don’t know it’s a problem.
- I can’t confess a sin I’m pretending not to know about.
- Humility lives in understanding my inability to cope with life without Jesus, not in my taking care of things so that He doesn’t have to.
In other words, if my desire to be perfect impells me to stuff the sofa cushions with all my problems, so that even I don’t have to look at them… how can I surrender them to Jesus?
