Hi. My name is Carol. I'm a hypocrite. Hopefully, I'm recovering...
I'm running a great risk saying those words. I know that. Some of you might quit following the blog or unfriend me on facebook...but, I gotta say this.
Have you ever heard yourself speak words of life and truth into the life of a friend...only to feel convicted that you should apply them to your current situation or crisis? Yeah? Me too.
I love God. With all my heart. I want to follow Him with everything in me. I know truth. I want it to not only live in my head but to settle down and breathe life into my weary heart.
But there are days when I struggle to see truth. When hope seems far away. When my faith seems fatal.
It's usually those moments when God brings someone along who needs encouragement. And, I find myself speaking truth to them...life giving, amazing, hopeful truth. Only to leave the conversation and return to my discouragement.
I so long for my heart and my head to align themselves and in perfect time waltz through life. But, tonight, it seems like they are dancing to different songs. The noise drowns out the desperate cry of my soul. And, once again, I find myself here...frustrated.
Maybe, I'm the only one. But, at the slim chance that I'm not...
Hi, my name is Carol. I'm a recovering hypocrite. What's your name?
