As this small group, band of brothers stuff develops I pray you’ll begin to find yourself with a few people you can be brutally honest with. Searingly open what’s really going on with you. As in, “this is the specific evil in me” honest.
Part of what walking in the light means is disclosing our darkness.
Whether trusted friends, a spiritual director figure, investing in an accredited counsellor, or crashing a catholic confessional – this practice is worth all the time, money and emotional investment you can throw at it.
“I did this….”
“This is is developing….”
“I’m conflicted about…”
“I didn’t do that…”
“I’m addicted to….”
It’s medicine. Sadly more in the pulling splinters-out than gulping calpol way, but it does us such good.
Freedom is found in the open. Disciple, when’s the last time you went there?
“if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” 1 John 1:7-9
