We all wear masks sometimes. Some of these masks people can see and others, we know they are there, but others may not be aware of how many we have. Through the years I have become a master mask wearer.
How many of these masks do you wear?
  • I'm feeling great! When you are tired or sick.
  • I'm okay with whatever decision is made. When you clearly have an opinion.
  • I'm not disappointed. When you really are.
  • I can do it by myself. When you have no idea what to do next!
  • I'm fine. When life has thrown you one to many curve balls.
  • I'm happy. When all you want to do is cry.

Why do we do this?

No one has it all together all of the time.  It doesn't make you weak or fragile to share your struggles with others! 

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. Ephesians 4:25

How do we take the masks off?

Trusting, grace filled relationships are key! 
I have been blessed to have a circle of friends who I can be completely honest with. It is the most refreshing experience to do life with them. 

There is no need to be fake. No masks required in these special friendships. 

This took some work, lots of grace, trust and time to develop. In this special place, I can finally be real without fear of judgement or disapproval.  I think that this is what the church is in Acts was experiencing "All the believers were together and had everything in common" 

We were not meant do do life alone or to live behind a mask. So take a risk, find a safe place and share who you really are.
