A little book by Bill Leckie recently shook me out of my stupid complacency and taught me to be real with God first. All this time I’ve been journaling and chatting with friends over coffee trying to reach down into the “real me”, I’ve been fooling myself. There is no “getting real” without first owning up to who we are, what we want, and what we don’t want with our Daddy in Heaven.
He knows all, so He is not surprised. But we are not free of the shackles of self-protected delusion until we come clean in His presence. It is that naked unveiling of our hearts in front of Another that permits us to be freed from whatever hindrance, shame, or fear kept us from moving beyond.
I’m gonna let this marinate and see what else God has to say.
