Lent 7: tell the truth

Happy Day 7 of Lent. In the name of getting to bed at a reasonable time, I’m going to keep this short and sweet.

I think there’s a really simple, great thing we can do to promote love and intimacy in all our relationships: be honest about how you’re feeling.  Don’t feel like talking about something?  Just saying that sometimes makes talking possible.  Feeling weird and disconnected? Just saying that out loud sometimes sucks the distance right out of the relationship.

So tonight, for Day 7 of Lent, try it out with God.

Tell Him the truth.  That’s it.  Before you go to sleep imagine Him asking you to just tell Him the truth.

Imagine Him asking you: how are you disappointed?  and tell Him the truth.

Imagine Him asking you: how are you doing?  Really?  And tell Him the truth.

Imagine Him asking you: how are you feeling about our relationship?  And tell Him the truth.

Imagine Him asking you: what do you want?  And tell Him the truth.
