I have a few things to get off my chest. First, I would love to be skinny! I mean how nice would it be to go into any store and pick up any old outfit and look great. I however, am not thin, nor tall, and if I am committing to my title here, confessing that I am doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to become thin.
Secondly, I wanted to be CEO of a fortune 500 company when I was a kid. Yep, that is right. I was planning on taking over the world. Confession 2, I did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to become a CEO. That is right, my major is Speech Communications with a minor in Ag Development. I can hear all three of my dedicated followers saying, what? Seriously? (BTW, thank you for following me!) Yep, I have always said that my major was: teaching a cow to talk. What do you do with that? I will tell you, it is NOT become CEO of a major Fortune 500 company.
Confession 3: I over analyze EVERYTHING. As I sit here to write this blog, I am sure I will read it over and over again. Contemplating, is it funny? What is my point? Where am I going? What does this all mean? It means that I make decisions. Then I consider each decision I did not make. This leads to the conclusion that my original decision was absolutely terrible. At which point, most days, I just say oh well and accept the decision may end in a craving for chocolate.
Confession 4: I am really trying to find my place in God's plan. My silly rants and admissions of faults I am hoping are a pathway to discovering God's plan for me. You see, I have always thought God has great plans for me. He has been refining me, testing me, and pushing me; I think I have finally connected with Him. It took a few trials, a few broken hearts, a few lost friendships, and a few reluctant and tearful letting go and letting God to get where I am. I don't want to miss out on His calling me because I am afraid. If I need to confess my faults, or divulge a few mistakes to be cleared for service in His plan, then I pray I am no Jonah. The last thing I want is to be thrown up on a beach smelling like whale puke!
Last Confession: I am not a very good listener. I can talk, but I need to listen. If I am to discover what God has planned for me, then I better get started listening!
To answer before listening—
that is folly and shame.
My last thought here is that I do not want my last two confessions to be like my first two. I don't want to say that I did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to achieve them. Now is a good time to learn from those mistakes and say it is time to do ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING to seek God's will and listen for His call.
