Laying It Out There

I had a great conversation today with a guy who’s been through a lot. He’s done drugs, gotten into drinking, ultimately made some choices that he now realizes weren’t the best.

Best part of the conversation was him telling me about all of those things. Not because he needed to. Not because I necessarily needed to know, but because he was admitting some mistakes he’s made. He was acknowledging that he had veered from God’s path and he is now ready to jump back on the road and continue pursuing a relationship with God.

For me, hearing that openness was refreshing. It was great to hear someone just lay out their mistakes and say, here’s who I am, here’s where I’ve been, but here is where I’m going.

Profound. It’s not easy to do that, but I believe the impact on a person can be absolutely profound.

Here’s to laying it all out there, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
