To many of us believe that God will be upset with us if we tell Him what we really feel or think. But God tells us that He doesn’t want us to be superficial-in our relationship with Him, with others and even in our own life.

Be honest about your pain, confusion and doubt – even when you are trying to reach others with the truth about Jesus. We’re not expected to have all the answers-just a committed, searching heart.

The fact is, God desires truth and honesty at the deepest level and wants us to experience His love, forgiveness, and power in all areas of our lives. It doesn’t mean everything will be perfect. But it means we can be real, feeling the pain and joy, confidence and confusion, anger and love. It’s the kind of honesty that will attract others to what is real – Jesus.
