if you could change just one thing
word for the day: change
if there was one thing you could change, what would it be?
one thing. one thing only?
well, i would have treated my relationships a lot more soberly. i would listen more. listen deeper. less thinking about what i was going to say next and more looking straight in the eyes and hearing the heart.
i would say what needed to be said. less small talk and filling the awkward gaps of silence and more truth, as hard as it may be to hear and even to say, spoken with the love of a friend. too many times have i known deep in the pit of my stomach what should have been said and i failed to say it.
failed to say, don't give up...
He is faithful...
i love you...
i am here...
i am sorry.
i have regretted both what i have said too lightly and too deeply what i have not.
if i could change one thing, i would change the way you and i have interacted. i would interact with you as one who i long to see found faithful to Him in the end and not as one whose acceptance now i am craving to gain.
i would treat you truly as a friend.
