There are some moments that you just remember about people when you think about them. I’ll never forget this one day when I was sitting across from my mentor. I was munching on my chicken salad sandwich, asking her about things that confuse me like honesty and faith and sex and truth. She looked at me and asked, “Do you think it’s important to do things the way God tells us to do them?” I didn’t have an answer for her, and I’m still wrestling with that question. But I think I’m in a bit of a better head space today than I was then. I’m learning and relearning that my faith is not just for myself. My life, my actions, and my words, are all supposed to reflect what I’ve found in Christ. And that idea is something I cannot refute. I never want to point people to something other than Christ…so when I think about those confusing things today, I get clarity a lot quicker when I think about what my choices communicate to the world.
On another note, this picture and verse will always remind me of this song.
