There are several things I like Facebook and quite a few I don’t.  I like seeing some old friends and reconnecting.  I like some coupons I get, flyfishing destination ideas and knowing what’s new at gogo gumbo.  What I particularly don’t like is some of the ranting I see by people who then turn around and post scripture and put on the Christian face.  The reason I don’t like it is because it reminds me of me, of how I have acted in the past, of how I still act at times and of the miles to travel to be who I want to be on this earth.

I do not want God to take on a “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” attitude because he wouldn’t tolerate me very long.  I do not want God to start shouting out my flaws to all who can hear because He will be busy and I will be thoroughly embarrassed.  I do not want God telling me I will have to earn His trust back every time I fail and then have that earning process completely subjective to His whim.  I’ll never get His full trust back if I have to earn it.  Yet, I have treated people that way and done those things at times.

I’m better about such things today but not perfect.  I want to be better about it today than I was yesterday and I want to be better at it tomorrow than I am today.  I want to be more and more and more like God each and every day I’m still on this earth.  God, help me, restore me, renew me, lead me.  Make my life yours, make my words yours, make my actions yours.

Grace and peace to you.
