For some reason in the last week, off and on, the word I keep getting from God is about 'being a witness'. Chapter 37 in Purpose Driven Life talks about this about, and I like what Rick W. says. Being a witness is simply, naturally, saying what happened to me. Sharing my experience with God. That shouldn't be so difficult.
My wife and I started watching an interesting detective show in PBS - Unforgotten. I'm amazed at how they can take one crime story and turn the investigation into a 6 part, 12 hour mini-series. After watching the second episode this evening, I rather enjoying it and was curious if anyone at work is watching it as well. More to the point - I had a natural desire to about what I enjoyed and experienced with others about this show.... Why isn't it quite the same with God and church? Why is it so easy for me to 'be a witness' about a well written TV show than it is to be a witness for God?
What a struggle. Independence and self-sufficiency is so ingrained in me. 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.' The verse seems appropriate to this train of thought I'm on. I've really got to do every bit of that verse better, more often.
