8 comments on “I’m Tired Of False Postive Confessions

  1. Wow, so true! I have often felt this way. When all I want to do is scream, yet I feel pressured to say I am wonderful! It is like you can’t say you are blessed and having a hard time, tired or sad. When in reality you can be any of those things and blessed! It is vital to have a network of support of Christians who you can be open with…..so I hope Christians take the message from your post and help others to open up with true feelings even the bad words and that others are there to support them.

  2. Challenging post! So often we give an automatic response of “I’m fine” when asked how we are going – almost on automatic pilot. We would be more honest and more authentic if we answered based on how we were actually feeling. Being willing to open up to others can be difficult because it makes us vulnerable, humble. Isn’t that what Christ wants – for us to be humble?

    Philippians 2:5-8
    Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:

    6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
    7 but made himself nothing,
    taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
    8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    and became obedient to death—
    even death on a cross!

    We often hear people talk about being Christ-like but don’t go further to read exactly what that would look like. Thanks for the challenging post! Blessings.

  3. Compulsive, I wish we’d all do a little more screaming and a bit less lying. Maybe then the world would know we’re disciples, not perfectionists!

  4. I think you hit it out of the ballpark when you said “we put on our good religious face” ! Friends say I’m very tack-full I like using a 9 lb. hammer on thumb tacks on cork-board! It may not be pretty but it will get the job done.
