The devotion I wrote for today's date in _Mornings with Jesus_ doesn't show me in the best light. I like to think I'm a little (or maybe a lot) better than I really am. I tend to act nicer when I think people are watching. Maybe we all do.
That doesn't matter as much anymore to me. Sure, I want to be kind and generous, but more and more, I find myself wanting to bring the real me - the struggling, flawed person I really am - out into the light. Doing this is harder than I thought, but I have this desire to be true in every circumstance. No false front. No more "What will people think?"
I'm not sure I can do this, but I want to, with Jesus's help. I think He lived like that here on earth.
I would be true. Sing it, Suzi.
