Watch “If We’re Honest (Lyric Video) – Francesca Battistelli” on YouTube
Since my honesty post the other day, this song has been in my head.
I think the best honesty is when we are honest with ourselves. God has me reading in the book of Romans. The message version. I found this little gem:
God pays no attention to what others say (or what you think) about you. He makes up his own mind.
Romans 2:9-11 MSG
So here is some honesty. I used to call myself a people pleaser. It was an excuse I used to justify my disobedience to God. I’m not using that excuse anymore. I’m not labeling myself that way anymore. I’m going to please God. I’m not going to be afraid if my obedience to God may hurt or offend others. From the words of my sister-in-law Debra Greer, “God will walk them through their hurt. ” So I will trust God and please Him!
