“I give it all to you, God, trusting that you’ll make something beautiful out of me.”
this past weekend I went on the [cru] (campus crusade for christ) fall retreat to Bair Lake Bible Camp. it was definitely MUCH needed and I met some amazing people.
one of the things that stuck with me the most was this:
why do we always put on a mask with other Christians? we are often more open and more raw with non-Christians than Christians.
when you wear a mask, people fall in love with the mask, not the real you.
it’s so true and it hit me hard. think about it, if you’re in a small group and they are asking if anyone has anything they’re struggling with or want prayer for, what do we say?
“I’m really struggling with homework right now.”
“I’m having some issues with pride.”
“pray for travel safety.”
“I need peace.”
why are we so vague with people that are going through the same things as we are? we are so guarded because of what other people might think of us.
you can’t judge someone just because they sin differently than you.
” for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”
just a little something for you to think about!
