Thought to share: Be real with ME. There is no need for you to approach ME wearing a mask or hiding behind your walls. When you come to ME – presenting ME with what you think I want to see and saying what you think I want to hear – you inhibit intimacy with ME. You keep ME at a distance and prevent ME from giving you what you need. Stop the facade and come to ME with open honesty and full transparency. I already know everything about you. I even know things about you that you are not aware of. Nothing you say will surprise or shock ME. You cannot make ME love you any more or less than I do. So be real and you’ll find our relationship much more rewarding.

1Samuel 16:7 (NLT) But the LORD said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”

Psalm 139:1-4 (NLT) LORD, You have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, LORD.

Thought to share: Don’t talk at ME. Talk with ME. Don’t come with lists and tasks. Come sharing your heart. Don’t tell ME what you think you’re supposed to say. Be authentic and transparent, revealing everything you think and feel. Then let’s discuss. You share your heart and I will share MINE. And we’ll make the journey together.

Psalm 62:8 (NLT) O my people, trust in Him at all times. Pour out your heart to Him, for God is our refuge.
Proverbs 2:1-4 (NLT) My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures.
