Transparency

Why is it that you hide from Me
As if I do not see?
Why do you remain silent
When your very thoughts I read?

You want to feel My presence
But you can’t see past the walls
that hardness of heart built over the years
When will they ever fall?

I need you to be transparent
Speak to Me what you feel
If you want to build a relationship
You’re going to have to be real

I’m not looking for fancy speeches
Don’t waste your time trying to impress
I just need you to begin to speak to Me
And allow the Holy Spirit to do the rest

Share with Me your struggles
No matter how shameful they may be
I already know the temptations you face
I’m the One to set you free

You fear the thought of surrender
Afraid I will strip everything from you
Do you really think I will do you harm?
I only want what is best for you

There’s freedom in your surrender
Time to give up the fight
Your heart will never find the rest it needs
Until you and I are right

Be open to Me – and be transparent
No more excuses to not even try
I can see you snuggled behind your “comfortable” walls
So why even try and hide?

This gets right to the heart of how our relationship with God should be. Thanks for sharing. God bless.

Transparency ... such a great concept ... such a difficult place for many of us to be ... and yet, He calls us to be transparent with Him ... or to be more so with each other. Really good stuff, by a REALLY GREAt writer!
