“Praying is no easy matter. It demands a relationship in which you allow someone other than yourself to enter into the very center of your person, to see there what you would rather leave in darkness, and to touch there what you would rather leave untouched. Why would you really want to do that?”

~ Henri Nouwen ~

All of us have secrets. There are certain things that we would like to be kept in the dark, hidden from the judgmental world and to remain untouched. I'm not really a secretive person but there are certain things that I would like to be kept private. Even though I share some of my personal stuff and emotions through writing in my blogs, I still manage to keep some things to myself. And when it comes to pouring out my deepest desires and secrets, I can only entrust them to God. For I know that He alone can understand.

I was faced with this dilemma a few weeks back, a certain secret of mine was almost blown away and I am glad that God helped me get through all that.

Can you really keep a secret forever?

One way or another those secrets will find a way to reveal itself and to be out in the open.

And if anyone has asked you "Can you keep a secret?" What do these words do to you? Your heart may beat a little faster, what you're about to hear is meant for your ears alone. What is the real question behind "Can you keep a secret?" what you are being asked is "Can I trust you?"

What’s up for grabs could be either a bit of fascinating news or a piece of useless gossip. Or it could be that someone is entrusting his or her heart and feelings to you.

Are you worthy of the other person’s trust? Can you keep a secret—really?

You Don't Have a Big Mouth

In fact, you like to keep your life very private.
You figure that your personal life is
no one's business.

And if people try to pry,
they'll end up unsuccessful.

You're a big mystery to people -
and that's fine by you!
Do You Have a Big Mouth?

Secrets are mostly things that we are too ashamed of or too personal for us to reveal even to our closest friends and associates. Gossip is different. When you say to somebody if he/she could keep a secret, the normal reaction of a person is that he/she thinks that he/she will be receiving a juicy bit of gossip worth spreading to everybody else. It's better to keep the secret to yourself or if it's a juicy piece of gossip item, to keep it to yourself and let it die a natural death.

Thanks to the interesting post. God bless you the golden silence of God's wisdom to know when to speak and when to hold your tongue.
