Consider Your Ways: Question 21
What one thing do you most regret about last year, and what will you do about it this year?

Aargh! There are so many things. I hope you don't mind if I share them all with you all. I think it is important though that we confess our sins to one another so that we can be accountable to others in our repentance. I have a couple of close friends with whom I can share everything - their rebuke, encouragement, challenge and guidance is so important to me. I hope that people reading this have people in their life who can do this for them. I suppose it is a further example of the Titus 2 relationship between younger and older women.

As for doing something about it, I am trying day by day to turn away from sin and to set my eyes on Jesus and his teachings and example. I hope that I can show here that I am looking purposefully at what and where I need to change. I look forward to seeing what God has done in my life and how he has worked in me, until that day in glory, when we are made perfect in Christ.

Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper,
but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.

Proverbs 28:13

Hey sis,

Transparency is definitely needed in the Body of Christ. I think that too often, we try to put on facades, but being transparent lets others know that THEY aren't the only ones feeling that way. I think sometimes we feel alone in this walk when it comes to people because we think others can't relate. Transparency is a beautiful thing that helps to solve that problem. It's also awesome seeing your brothers and sisters grow.

Hi Jenn, it's funny you say that! I was very stressed and ended up bursting into tears at church one night. A few months later, a friend of mine said that that had actually been weirdly encouraging for her. She had always thought that I just managed everything without problem so it was good for her to see that I didn't sometimes!
