11: In Honesty

Tears-eyes-16143904-500-368

The pain and tears that sometimes come with admitting fears have many times made me uncomfortable. As I well-up, I fight feelings of silliness and weakness, but this last week I broke down and admitted freely a fear I had been carrying a long time. It opened my life up to new possibilities, that simple one sentence spoken to a small group of people. It began a process of promise and, in a strange way, I find myself thankful for that teary-eyed moment. I cherish the power of honesty.

 

[Our responses and reactions to the things that happen around us reveal the depth of our character and nature.
They are opportunities, also, to show the character and love of God.
This Lenten Season I am practicing awareness by looking for deep truth in everyday things.
