I was reading earlier a short sermon (http://kevinmartineau.ca/sermon-synopsis-916-being-transparent/) about transparency.
It made me realize how there are aspects of my life that I am very transparent about and a few that I try to hide and guard. What's funny though, is that not only do I fail miserably at hiding it from other people, but I also seem to think God doesn't know about it. I use quite a few defense mechanisms to protect MYSELF and MY feelings and MY image that I don't realize: not only am I not fooling anyone but I'm actually making it HARDER for God to work in my life and through my life.
Today I am thankful for taking a step towards being more transparent.
