Don't get me wrong- most days, I absolutely love my life. I love to be busy. I love knowing that I am making a difference, even if just a teeny tiny one.
This post has been saved as a draft for awhile. Yesterday, the sermon at our church was fantastically appropriate to this post and had me making a mental note to pull this draft out and revisit it. Our message was on labels, or # hashtags. What labels do we put on ourselves? What labels do we allow others to put on us? What labels should we be proudly owning??
For me, I want this label: #transparent. I want to be transparent in my imperfections. I want people to know that I'm not perfect, and I shouldn't be expected to be. I don't have it all together, and I probably never will. Honestly? I think he moment I feel like I have it all together is the moment I will stop trusting God's will first and my life will begin to fall apart until I am reminded who is in control -- and more importantly, that I DONT have to be in control. Like every other human being, I am imperfect. Yes, I strive to be more like the ONLY perfect person, Jesus. I'd like to be transparent in my relationships and in my small groups. I am changing constantly, as is the world around us. I can only hope that my transparency, my honesty, will be enough to help me continually change for the better.
How would you label yourself? What labels would you like for others to see in you?
