Who are You?
Posted on June 12, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Victory Call
Years ago during a financially lean time, God gave me a cleaning job to help my husband provide for our family. In one of the numerous office cubicles I cleaned hung a plaque which read, “Character is who you are when nobody but God is watching.” – Author unknown.
I remember not being able to get that phrase out of my head, and thus I have remembered it until this day. Many times over the years this phrase has come to mind and I have been prompted to ask myself, “Stephanie, who are you when no one is watching?” Are you doing all that is up to you to do to live at peace with all everyone in your live? Are the words that come from your mouth and the meditations of your heart acceptable in the sight of the Lord?
“Does your talk equal your walk or do you need to be reminded today, that you are a Christian?” My answer is yes and yes. Yes, my walk equals my talk and yes, I need to be reminded that I am a Christian. It could go with out saying that there are days I wish I could relive because I walked in them so poorly. In those days I wander far from acceptable meditations. I thank God then and now, for His faithfulness, even when I am unfaithful in my faith walk. I praise Him for the Holy Spirit’s presence in my heart and life because apart from it I would be a woman most unknown.
My Question For You Today:
