Thank you for your site. I am a writer as well and have been asked to write a weekly devotional page for a church website. Your page confirmed the name God placed on my heart for this project.

God bless :)

Proverbs 27:12 says “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

If we can’t be transparent with one another then there is no way we can grow (sharpen) each other.

If we are afraid to be transparent because of shame hidden away in our life then transparency should be an encouragement for us to move beyond what brings shame and into a beneficial and strengthening relationship. See Galatians 6:1 “Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

On the other hand if we are afraid to be transparent because of self-doubt or shyness then we may be robbing those around us of blessings and encouragements. 1 Corinthians 14:26 “What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.”

Your description of Christ is on the mark. He had little patience and was very blunt with those who should have, or professed, to know better. Yet, with the poor, sick, weary, and those truly seeking him he had compassion and kindness.

Your words are encouraging to me but also convicting. Nicely said, uhh Kindly said? Well put! :)

I just read your note that you tagged me on. It was ON POINT…get out of my head!!! This last season has been such this way for me. God has put me in a position to be a blessing….and I hadn’t really realized it…I was just doing what I felt I was supposed to do. I have received in abundance the comments you were speaking of from your friend. I had an employee cry this week as she expressed to my team and executive board members what she felt that I had done for her and what an example she felt that I was to her.

To the point that I almost felt embarrassed….and it was that night in prayer that I had realized that I hadn’t yet learn how to receive. I felt like the Holy Spirit told me that I knew how to lose in the past, I knew how to survive and just get by, but now at this level he really wanted me to know how to win…and to recieve it and not keep it hidden. Afterall, I am his child I have been put here to be a blessing..and I am not ashamed of the gospel nor my salvation. THANK YOU!! Thank you….and continue to let him use you my friend!!!”
