Then she said to him, “How can you say, ‘I love you,’ when you won’t confide in me? This is the third time you have made a fool of me and haven’t told me the secret of your great strength.”(Judges 16:15, NIV)
Read the rest of the chapter to find out why Samson should have kept his big mouth shut!
Some secrets should remain so, but others are best brought into the light. My biggest secrets included sexual abuse and an eating disorder. When I finally shared with others, God set to work on my healing. My openness became my book, Meeting Myself, Snippets from a Binging and Bulging Mind
To tell or not to tell? That is the question. I do know the one open secret that I intend to share constantly. How about you?
John 3:16- For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (NIV)
Prayer-Lord, give us the grace to know when to shut our mouth and when to open it wide by sharing your love and your salvation message with others.
