Transparency!

So today, I had a talk with a friend....

At first I didn't answer the phone cause she called from an unknown number (s/o to her), but I did it anyway....God's in the business of surprising me these days, so I'm getting prepared for receiving things from people I don't know and numbers I've never seen, o yes, o yes, say AMEN!

Anyway, there was a conversation or rather an incident that took place yesterday that kind of ended on a bad tone, mainly my part, I think. While listening to her speak, and hearing her side of the conversation, ...minutes later, after careful reflection and staring at myself in the car mirror, since I was driving when I received the call, I realized that I was in the wrong. Now recently it hasn't been a struggle for me to apologize if I've offended someone, although it definitely isn't my aim, and I tend not to care whether or not I'm forgiven by man as long as He who matters forgives me....but natural relationships heal with forgiveness.... So I apologized! Although at the time the instance occurred, I couldn't see the wrong, and I honestly didn't think it was that bad, it was revealed to me that she was offended, so correction was in the works and still is. Yes, I'm human so eh, guess I have to get used to it.

I tend to think I'm uplifting and building up those around me, cause I truly want my friends to success, but sometimes it may come off as not being done in love and being said to prove a point, so I've been challenged to use discretion with the Holy Spirit's leading, carefully evaluating motives for the things I do...

At least I feel better now, knowing that she's ok, so all is well with the world. And I'm slowlyyyy but surely becoming less guarded, guess you just gotta get to know me :)

Currently: Working on being transparent....I call it guarded, eh...or private.... guess not! :-p

P.S. thanks for the convo...... 





Be blessed,
