A couple of weeks ago I set silent on the other end of a phone call. One of my bestfrans had finally decided to start livin' for Christ. I was thrilled and we had been havin' regular phone conversations about it. On this particular day bestfran decided to call me and his words were so profound I was speechless: ,"Aleshea, God is soo good. Why didn't you ever tell me? I knew you were religious and we'd had conversations about religion and death." I responded with, "I tried but you wouldn't listen." The phone grew dead for a minutes before he simply replied, "Why didn't you try harder?"
I can't help but think how I could have been the only believer he encountered in his life. Wasted opportunities. A preacher once said that sometimes God keeps you safe until he can save you. Never realized how true this statement was until now.
So... consider this my public apology. My apology for not always bein' the boldest and best witness you created me to be. Consider this my new beginnin'. My beginnin' to show grace, mercy, compassion and Christ like love and all that I do.
