I’m told I’m opinionated. And “what’s wrong with that,” I ask. My argument is that there’s nothing wrong with having opinions. I believe it’s good to know what you believe and why. The problem comes when you always think your opinions are the right one. That is what people are really saying when the call me opinionated. That I think I know everything. Geesh! Nothing could be farther from the truth actually.
What I’ve discovered is that, thinking I know what I think deludes me into feeling safe and in control. And since anyone that believes in God knows He has the market cornered on control, I’m learning to know nothing and be ok with that. Don’t get me wrong, some things I’m sure of; I am not my own, I’ve been bought at a great price which makes me highly valued, and God is in control of all things at all times.
Since those things I know to be true really are, then I’m making the decision to be a participant in life rather than pretending to be the ruler of my destiny. Welcome to my ride.
