I am writing this post with a heart that is thumping so hard and fast. I am so heart sore. It has come to my attention that I need to clarify my last post. This is a quick post to say that my previous post was my most honest post about what God is dealing with ME about. It was about me facing up to the stress of perfectionism that I have so often held myself to. It has been such a heavy burden to me for so long. Unfortunately someone close to me thought I was judging them and writing about them. Oh my goodness. That was so not my heart at all!!! If any of you felt that too ... please know that that was not my intention at all. My heart for my blog has always been to walk an honest journey before you of the lessons that God is teaching me. As I was writing that post, God was showing me how to walk in my freedom from having to paint a perfect picture of myself. I was not suggesting that all the blogs I read are superficial and paint a picture-perfect world that is untrue. I have been so enriched by the blogs I follow.
My heart is now so heavy. I can't sleep from the thought of unintentionally hurting another. Maybe this is my practical lesson of now having to trust God in the areas where I just failed. I have to rest in knowing that God knows my heart.
From a very real and not-so-perfect Janine
