I recently read a blog posted on Facebook by a friend--here-is the link.  It started the wheels turning--


Are you brave enough to wear your sign and more importantly are you brave enough to declare the truth on your sign?

I have a good friend who often questions how much I reveal about myself as I write this blog---and especially if you read the book.  The friend tells me they are very private and do not understand my willingness to be so transparent.  As I read the blog above and after just finishing a book The Sin Eater, by Francine Rivers, I think I am beginning to understand why I am so open.

God knows it all---so why not reveal it to Him?  The questioning friend tells me that God does know it all, and that is enough--no one else is needed in the equation.  Perhaps they are right.  In the blog above and the book I read, the open quietness of their truth leads to mis-understanding and isolation in the midst of community.  

I feel led to share--led to reveal the not so pretty's, the ugly's--the truth of what the real story is---always with the thought--there is someone else out there that needs to know they are not alone in their pain-despair-guilt.  God's redemption of it all--is my story--His faithful presence and protection--is my reminder--and His enduring love and mercy through grace-my revelation.

So I have my sign on---do you?  I am living the truth for all to see--braving the rejection-bearing my soul-earnestly seeking Him above all!

"Therefore, having put away falsehood,
 let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor,
 for we are members one of another."
Ephesians 4:25

If God is prompting you to share this or any post, please feel free to do so.

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
