humble pie

there’s a guy whose blog i visit weekly cause he writes often…about stuff that matters. in his own words:

A bit about me in a nice bulleted list for easy reading

• Husband and father of two
• Disgusted with America not being America anymore
• Fed up with Christianity not being Christianity anymore
• Tired of seeker sensitive as well as the emerging church and its leadership
• Grossed out by church politics and their business-like approach
• Sickened by liberal, hippie, hipster – “Christians” that abuse God’s grace
• Living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
• An architect by trade and education waiting to do what I am meant to do
• Formally a licensed minister serving in a Pastor of Worship capacity
• Constantly searching for truth and not sugar coated, happy-go-lucky, Bible chats and story time.
• I love food (too much) sports, and many nerdy hobbies.

In you will see random articles containing my rants on the topics above as well personal entries…

well, thought i’d send you over to a post of his about humbling ourselves, cause i think we all need a good kick in the butt reminder of this every so often…or every day.

yesterday i did something embarrassingly irresponsible. i had to fight – spiritually – to keep shame from overwhelming me. – to keep from lying about it – to keep from supressing it all. it was something that could have happened and probably happens to moms all the time, but to me? i know i have too much pride in the way i mother…& just…the way i do things.

but last night, God gave me the courage to confess (to my friend/husband). all the sudden, my tears would not stop! but they weren’t flowing from shame so much as self-realization and release. i knew that without confession & the humility therein, i’d be held captive in my spirit by shame. shame speaks my enemy’s native tongue as it suffocates my mind… unless i see it for what it is and speak out against it. it’s really hard to do. but it’s freeing to express it. confess it. & embrace.

how ’bout instead of pumpkin, let’s have a piece of humble pie today?
