I love twitter. Its a way to connect with friends, and journal my way through the day. Here was my tweet from the other day:
What struck me today in my time with God...a time that did NOT start early in the morning, and there was no workout involved either :) ...is that I am very often quick to post about how awesome I am, but not so quick to be transparent.
Now hear me on this. I think its totally appropriate to share our victories with our friends, and I think that we don't have to constantly proclaim each and every failure. I just have noticed a tendancy in myself, and maybe you've been there too, where I don't often share my struggles...or tweet on the mornings that I overslept and had a rushed time with God. Or the times that I chose TV over Jesus...or whatever it is.
I don't like that tendency. None of us are perfect and I think we should be challenged to not create false pictures of ourselves. Our approval for anything in our pursuit of Christ doesn't come from readers or friends, who have a rosy picture. It comes from Jesus...who knows all and sees all. He is most honored when I pursue him authentically, not pretending to be more awesome than I am.
