Just Sayin

Okay this has been floating around in my head for a while so I'll share it with you and hope it helps. I follow Bobbie Houston on twitter. She is the wife of Hillsong Pastor Brian Houston. Anyway one day she twittered - "heart is in the right place but insecurities abound" 

That totally described someone that I had been frustrated with and it made it so much easier to forgive and move on because I truly believe that person's heart was in the right place. 

It also describes me and so many people I know. Sometimes we let our insecurities get the best of us and do or say things we normally wouldn't. 

Kevin is really good at believing the best of people - I am the more skeptical one. When I can see straight through someone's facade I just think they are a fraud instead of seeing them for what they are - insecure. 
This has really helped me keep a clear head about things and situations and made it much easier to deal with people that are just trying their best.
