Staring straight at it

I have never been more convinced in all my life than I am right now in:
  • the sufficiency of the Scriptures for the pursuit of the life that God intends me to have
  • my continual need of a Savior in my life to offer me a countless number of salvations from all manner of death
  • my need of relying on the Holy Spirit to lead me into the knowledge I need and provide the strength I need to build His kingdom
  • the utter inability of any other religious or human system to bring about the heart change that I need
The bitter taste of the fruit of my half-convinced life still lingers in my mouth. And I have stared straight at it in a mirror that I never knew existed. As ugly as it was, the reflection I saw was a gift.

Dad, help me embrace what you showed to me.
