“He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy”
We all wear masks.
We all have those facades we hide behind.
We tell people we’re doing great, when really, it feels like life is falling apart.
We pretend we have everything together, when really we’re clueless as to what is going on.
We act as if our finances are in order, when really we wonder how we will pay this month’s bills.
We show acceptance and love to those who have hurt us, when really, we’re dying from the pain inside.
We go to church, small group, help with the youth ministry and act as if we are close to God, when really He feels a million miles away.
We don’t like people to see where we’re broken.
We make a mistake, we sin, we step outside God’s plan for our lives and our immediate reaction is to hide.
Cover it up.
Pretend everything is okay.
It’s something we’ve been doing since the Garden.
