I dislike it. I dislike the struggle we face in this life – some we bring upon ourselves and others from outside circumstances. Not wanting to do the wrong things yet still managing to do them is a struggle that grieves me. It pains me because of its ability to leave us bound to shame and secrecy.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems we dare not share the struggle, the distress, the ugly or at least not the real deal. You know, the truth that can set someone’s heart free, even ours. I’m not the social media police, but social media doesn’t help. We post our “perfect” pictures at the right angles in the best lighting – we showcase our very best. Funny thing is we don’t just do it on social media, but in our community with our friends and even with God. I don’t know why. In fact, I think our reasons vary from person to person. I’m not saying we should broadcast all of our junk, but we should definitely use wisdom.
Be Bold. Share those wrongs with the Lord. He cares for you and wants to set your heart free. Share with friends, the ones who have your best in mind.
Transparent moment. I’ve been bound and I know the beauty of sharing. It actually has the reverse effect. The air is clear, we’ll have people to support us and we begin to change – for the better. The truth is, it hurts worse to keep it inside, so share even if it hurts!
