I wonder what would happen if we were honest. Really honest.
About how we felt. About how we've failed. About how it feels to fail
and then try pick ourselves back up.
Or, perhaps, to be picked up and held.
Yes - even in our broken, faulty, fumbling state.
If we were honest enough to be like that...
What would happen?
I've been thinking about honesty and failing for a while now.
They are themes I keep returning to, often in the middle of the night. Or when I pause, fingers on the light switch, before saying goodbye to another day. I wonder whether I'm brave enough to be honest with my failings. Whether my faith is strong enough to take God at his word. And what would happen if I took a good hard, honest look at what God says about my life - about our lives. Our current ones, our collective ones, the ones we've stepped into over the muddied paths of time?
Would I take God at his word about where my peace might be found?
These are some of the small and honest thoughts I plan to collect here on this blog. If you are keen to follow along, make sure you subscribe to my newsletter. I'm going to try and link this blog to my newsletter...
(Another small honest thought: I'm not terribly good at the tech stuff, but I'll give it a shot.)

In high school I used to write what I'd call 'thinks' - little bits of writing about whatever topic or issue I was mulling over at the time. I still write these little pieces.
