Does Authenticity Have A Limit?


Sometimes I just can’t blog about it…

That thing, that person.

Those people, those things.


Sometimes authenticity has a limit…

And the only one who can hear my thoughts

Is the only One who knows my heart.

Deeply. Intimately.


Sometimes I just can’t blog about it…

That burden, that opinion.

Those opinions, those burdens.


Sometimes authenticity has a limit…

And the only one who can see my point

Is the only One who knows my mind.

Unconditionally. Perfectly.


Sometimes, it’s just between me and my Saviour…

And the only one I need to show and tell

Is the only One who can restore, replace, repair.


Now is one of those times.


Lord, You know my heart and my mind.

With You, authenticity has no limit.


God, investigate my life;

get all the facts firsthand.

I'm an open book to you…"

Psalm 139:1, the Message

You have a way of saying it like it is, LauraLee. So true -there is only one who knows my heart and mind, and loves me unconditionally. Beautiful!
Mearry Christmas, my dear friend!

How true your words are! There are times when I want to blast it into the blogosphere but ...only God needs to hear.

Merry Christmas to you,
Debbie

I understand, and I love how you wrote just exactly the feelings I've been experiencing in the past month. It's hard to write other thoughts when the only ones consuming me are better left to the privacy of my time with God.

Loved your anchor verse for the year. I'm so glad God impressed upon my heart a verse for the New Year.

Live it well, sister.
