Be Real

Be Real

If we ever want to know what’s stirring in our heart, all we have to do is listen to what’s coming out of our mouth. What we say, especially during times of stress or when we feel comfortable enough to open up to someone, reveals our truest beliefs. Our words unveil our fears and doubts. Anger and tears are more than moments of venting; they point to areas that need the healing touch of Jesus and the truth of his Word. Even sarcasm can indicate a place of wounding.

Don’t mask your true feelings. Listen to your heart and tend to your soul. Being honest about what’s going on inside of you and taking steps to find freedom is vital. Invite Jesus into every area of your life and hold nothing back. He’s able to strip away what doesn’t agree with truth when you don’t hide from your areas of frailty, unbelief, and pain.

Psalm 139: 1-4 (The Passion Translation)

Lord, you know everything there is to know about me.
You perceive every movement of my heart and soul, and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind.
You are so intimately aware of me, Lord. You read my heart like an open book, and you know all the words I’m about to speak
before I even start a sentence!
