Something happened to me this year that I didn’t anticipate.
Some of my fear have been miraculously replaced with faith.
Not just faith; but a ferocious form of faith & boldness, that has me struggling to keep a tight reign on my tongue.
Sounds like a miracle to me 🙂
My holding back, being lazy, and blatant disobedience is wilting away. In it’s place is a brassy boldness instead. O, this could get me into a lot of trouble. It actually has already proven itself to work best on a very tight leash!
It has me questioning, “Why Now?”
Why all of a sudden is it hard for me to keep my mouth shut tighter than usual?
“Why is worrying about offending others often kept me from defending what was right?”
Do you feel that way?
Why is it so hard to stand up for what you know is right?
Do you look around and see things that are disturbing, but your too afraid to say something because it may offend someone, or worse yet…make them angry?
A few weeks back I was in Walmart shopping with my family. We had just left church and threw our communion cups in the trash.
I was in the girls department, rummaging through some items with my 10 yr old daughter, when I hear some loud profanity nearby. I see a aggressive father threatening his wife and 2 small children with vulgar comments and body language that said he was looking for a fight. He agitated them by leaning in and cussing. They obviously was used to this kind of scene…but I wasn’t.
