If you are on Facebook, you may have seen this app: On this day, God wants you to know.
I don't always look at it and I rarely put much stock in it--until I get one like the one below. Then I wonder if God is trying to get my attention. I truly feel that the Lord tries to reach us through people and in different ways. Who knows? Maybe even Facebook can be one of those ways.
On this day, God wants you to know...
'... that it's time to let people see your inner beauty. It's time to let people know the real you. Be who you are, not who you think people want you to be. You are more beautiful on the inside than you realize, and you need to share that beauty with others. Be transparent, let your guard down, let people know the real you...'
You remember the old deodorant commercial that says "never let them see you sweat"? My mantra is "never let them see the pain". Or the fear or whatever. One thing I've learned in life is to put up walls and be selective about who I let in. I've been hurt and betrayed, as I'm sure all of you have. It's hard to get past that after a while and be open and honest with everyone.
Dare I try to be real? Can you handle it? Can I?
