I’ve been thinking a lot about honesty lately and what it means to me; and frankly I think honesty goes hand in hand with integrity, for it means being true to yourself and your values. Too many people censor themselves due to feeling like their thoughts don’t and shouldn’t matter. But here’s the thing: if you’re not honest about your feelings and your thoughts when the time comes to be raw and emotional and real, aren’t you doing yourself a disservice? Being honest is about being putting yourself and your feelings out into the light, because they matter. And you matter. Don’t ever forget this.

I like people who don’t fit in a box or stay between the lines, but who’s integrity is greater than any rule book and who’s loyalty is stronger than blood.

You may claim to love Jesus but your life proves you are still walking in darkness—confused, befuddled and foggy! When you are truly in love with Jesus, conversing with Him, He turns up the light. There is no darkness at all in His presence. The worst possible darkness to mankind is not in the hearts of God-hating Communist leaders or Christ-hating atheists. It is, rather, the horrible darkness that blinds so-called Christians who refuse to walk in the light.
