God's Word is like fire in my bones.
Sometimes, I tell myself that I shouldn't freak people out by talking too much about God or His Word.
Sometimes, I wonder if I should water down my speech or even carry conversations in a way without any reference to God.
Maybe then, I convince myself, people will be more comfortable around me. Who knows, maybe they will even like me more. Sometimes, I assume, if I speak what people like to hear I won't come across as a Jesus freak or too spiritual.
My mind is filled with maybe this and maybe that. Deep inside I have somehow become a people pleaser. I have compromised countless times just to be accepted.
To be honest, I can't do this anymore.
I need to be true to myself.
I need to be true to my calling.
I need to be true to my God.
"If I say I’ll never mention the Lord
or speak in his name,
his word burns in my heart like a fire.
It’s like a fire in my bones!
I am worn out trying to hold it in!
I can’t do it!"
