"Transparency" by Whitney Ford (I pray that everyone is blessed by this powerful blog; please click on the bloggers name to go to our "Featured Blogger" section to find out more about Ms. Whitney Ford. - Spirit Checker)

In this day and age everyone is always hollin' that they are the realest thing walking. We say we're lovers; yet we're so blinded. We don't love others , we love ourselves enough to be nice to others to get what we want. We're just like the picture , he looks like he's peacefully sleeping but in reality he is tormented because he's closed his ears from hearing. He has covered his eyes from seeing and he won't admit that he is broken and in need.

"IF we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." ( 1 John 1:9)  We've honored men's sight over God's all our lives and if we do not watch it will send us straight to hell. We as a people are in a dangerous spot. The only way to be freed is to tell on it. In my title I have Matthew 5:8 as a subtitle which reads as such, "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God." Why do we take that lightly? We wont see God without transparency! In other words, we wont see heaven. We have our eyes on creation rather than the creator. God is not pleased with this.

Why isn't iron truly sharpening iron? Why haven't we been abled to confess our faults one to another. (Proverbs 11:13) - "A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter."

The world today is so blemished and so dependent on everything but God. WE are made to be dependents so if we don't surrender to God we will depend on  SOMETHING.

"Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness  But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness." (Romans 6:13-18)

We were made to worship. some worship things, celebrities and themselves but see worship isn't just the lifted of hands and singing of songs. Worship is dedicating your life to a higher power.  What is your life dedicated too? Who are you presenting your living sacrifice too?  Lord, have mercy on us!

I see people who walk with canes and think their cool ! I see people where glasses to look preppy. Why do we do the things we do? Why do you wanna look handicapped? Let me tell ya it aint fun! somebody else did it and you wanna match what is in. You wanna be hip. I wanna be hip to God. I wanna know him even as I'm known. I wanna be unspotted from the world.  The only thing to get me their is a fully turned heart and no more 180.
You get mad cause somebody correct you but didn't correct the other person! Don't you know that is God's favor? he chose to show you your wrong that you might turn from it. We're so backwards. A wise man loves correction.If we were transparent we wouldn't mind. Why do we hate correction? We don't want people to see our wrong.

My pastor made a good point recently he said "half the time we don't go to the club, we don't smoke , we don't drink is because we don't want PEOPLE to see us." Its time to fear GOD more than man.

I want to be where I don't care who sees my mess as long as God cleans me up. Clean me up God beacause at the end of the day all I have to please is you. We're steady working on man's approval and half of us don't even know it.  I wanna be free , don't you? I love y'all so much. Thanks for reading,  I pray heart's are touched and that death in me works life in you. If it may be on your heart to just reach out for support on this subject or any subject pertaining to life and godliness feel free to contact me or send your prayer requests in to us at We are ready and willing to help encourage and enlarge the body of Christ in any way need or possible.
