i had an interesting dinner night out. to cut a long story short, it came to the point where some of my friends had the opportunity to tell me some encouraging words of what they have seen in me.
want to know why I believe what I believe
committed (to qt esp)
those were the ones i remember anyway. the question is really stuck to me now, am I really what others see in me? Some of the above comments are what I hope to be. A faithful follower of God, to be convicted of my beliefs, and to be committed in what I set out to do. How far do I fall short of the mark?
It really reminded me that what others see in me may not be what is really happening. Someone commented recently, “while you are at a stage of your life which is relatively smooth going”. We can hide our deepest and darkest secrets from those who we talk and interact with.
But we can’t hide the truth from God. He sees and knows everything. I have to learn to come before Him, and lay my life bare before Him. To acknowledge my weaknesses. To commit my desire to correct them. And be willing to see the commitment through.
I’m not putting up a front, but I need to give up all my possessions and desires in order to reach my goals.
