A Spiritual Journey – With a little help from my friends…

God always finds a way to reach us just where we stand. Sometimes its a still small voice and sometimes it is a through the words of a friend. Feel free to envy me because I have the most amazing friends in the world and they share their life with me continually through tweets and blogging. Sure we blog about family and might rant time to time but on occasion we share our spiritual journey with the world.

So here are a few words of empathy, conviction, & encouragement told with a little help of my friends.

Daily Prayer by @KerriJack

I have a standing deal with Kerri, if she doesn’t write a book one day I’ll kill her. I truly enjoy her humor and tales of her family but there is real power when she bears her soul and we are all the better for it.

Morning:
God,
Make me a better wife, a better mother, daughter, sister, employee, friend and neighbor. Give me grace today.
Amen

Night:
Well, God,
There’s always tomorrow.

An Open Confession by @AaronBReddin

Aaron calls it like he sees it and while we’ve yet to meet in real life I’ve come to really appreciate his voice. This post wasn’t an easy one to write but the best ones never are.

It is unacceptable to blame anyone but yourself for your current spiritual health

Seeing Spots by @bootsmc

Boots is the go-to-girl for all things concerning fashion and style. She has impeccable taste in music but I contend her real talent is allowing God to speak through her in a manner I can’t explain. Her insight is priceless.

I want to be that one leopard that can change her spots!

I try. My power to change these spots on my own has proven useless. The spots remain glaring at me reminding me of my darkness. In my frustration, I cry out to God.

Then, I hear his voice deep deep within my heart say, “When I look at you, I don’t see what you see {Proverbs 10:12}

To these folks and many others it is a great blessing to call you friends along this journey.

    Good post Keith. We are fortunate to be surrounded by great people. Sometimes I like to sit back, observe and see what inspirations come my way.

    You are too kind, my friend. Thank you for such thoughtful words. I totally dig that God can use any way possible to share his love/ hope…and he chooses to Tweet. He’s cool like that.

  • Thank you so much for you kind words. Is that a normal thing to say to a person who just issued a death threat?

    • Probably not but if the definition of normal is up to the two of us then folks are in real trouble. If I had a 10th of the writing talent you possess I wouldn’t take it so personally. You know I love you but the deal still stands.

  • Thanks man! Really appreciate that.

    That post was absolutely hard to write, but was necessary for my personal faith’s health and recovery. Never intended it to go beyond that, but that’s how God seems to work a lot. Glad it was something for you to relate to!

    And, we have GOT to hang out sometime soon!!
