Radio Program for November 8, 2012 Honesty
Radio Hostess: Lysa TerKeurst
Why is it that the hardest person for me to be honest with is sometimes myself?
Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries. I really like when I can see the good in situations and in people, but sometimes I need to allow myself to see the not-so-good in people.
Sometimes the glass really is half empty. I need to allow myself the freedom to be honest. To process honest thoughts and feelings. Not being honest about the fact that sometimes people and situations and life can be completely disappointing is an exhausting way to live.
So, I have decided to give myself the freedom to say, “This stinks.” Otherwise, I get this knotted feeling deep inside that my smile on the outside doesn’t match the sinkhole on the inside. And that, my friend, is a recipe for me to come unglued.
In the true nature of being honest, that isn’t good for anyone.
