"Whatever you confess, won't make me love you less." - GOD
A friend of mine just posted this on her facebook and it made me think to myself...I am always afraid of hurting someone's feelings or admitting my wrongs. I'm terrible at apologies and extremely prideful. I grew up in a not-so-healthy environment and we were yelled at for everything even things we had no control over. I find myself telling little lies just because I'm afraid of what will come with telling the truth...even on silly things. But it just dawned on me that I can confess anything and everything to God and he won't love me less. And that's all that really matters, right? Thanks Sandy for that cute little quote.

Colossians 2:20-23 (New International Version, ©2010)
20 Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 21 “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? 22 These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. 23Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.
People should be able to see a distinction between the way Christians and non-Christians live. Still, I'm finding in my walk that people expect instant perfection in me and I expect it of myself. I find that when they see the slightest sign of sin, they automatically come at me with “and you’re a Christian...” I'm coming to realize that Christian growth is a lifelong process. Although we have a new way of living, we don't automatically think all good thoughts and have all pure attitudes when we become new people in Christ. But if we keep listening to God, we will be maturing all the time. As I look over the last year, at the changes I've made in my life in my thoughts and attitude, I am proud. Change may be slow, but my life will change significantly if I trust God to change me.
