you would find me to be very different in flesh life, different than i am here in blog life.
you would be disappointed when you discovered...
i'm a complainer.
i like my way.
i can let pride lead me.
i think too much of myself.
i am not gracious (especially to myself).
i can be lazy.
i am unforgiving.
i have a crooked smile.
i am self conscious.
i worry a lot.
i fear too much.
BUT, here on this blog i aim not to be those things. i dig deeper, to who i am when i am real.
am i portraying a false image of who i am? i don't think so. i think i am encouraged to be a truer image of I Am. i'm encouraged to "enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart" and to step away from the complainer, worrier, fearer, unforgiver ..... in me.
here, i am cautious with my words, cautious with my thoughts. this is caution i need to develop in my flesh life, when i step away from the keyboard.
i wonder what it would be like to sit and visit with you. i wonder if it would be more comfortable with laptops between us (like a battle ship game) typing back and forth?
i'd hope it would be like this-
"When I look at you it is as if I am in the presence of Christ... It is the Christ in you who recognizes the Christ in me...Yes, He indeed is in our midst.. and from now on, wherever you go, or I go, all the ground between us will be holy ground."
