I’m not really sure why I am writing you an open letter since everything that I write, I feel like, is basically a conversation with you … but I was reminded this week to be careful about sitting on my high horse as it can be a long fall from that high of a perch.
I sincerely hope that I do not come across to you as “sitting on my high horse” when I share on here. I’m going to be perfectly honest with you … I fell off my proverbial high horse well over a dozen years ago. I fell into a big ole pile of manure and the stench stayed with me for so long that I never climbed back up. (I may write more on that at a later date.)
I share what the Lord lays on my heart to share and I keep the rest of it to myself, which is why I do not post on a daily or even a weekly basis. My convictions are just that, my convictions. I’m not going to apologize for the convictions that He has given me … convictions that are based on the Word of God. However, I share them so you’ll know where I am coming from in a given situation, not in an attempt to force them down your throats because I believe “I am right and you are wrong.” And while I answer to only One person for how I live my life, I have no desire to offend the masses in my process of living.
I do not claim or even secretly believe to know it all when it comes to living for the Lord. I am simply sharing with you how He’s leading me in the hopes that it will encourage you and/or maybe you have some words of encouragement for me. To me, that is part of being in the body of Christ.
So friends, please, know that when I write I am sharing from my heart. I desire to be real with you about the struggles and the joy I find on this journey of life; and most importantly, about the faithfulness of God in the midst of it all.
