Do you have a mask?… 5/08/2020 11:15 AM

It seems to be a way of life. You are either wearing or seeing someone with one. When you surf the internet you see more masks. They all have their own “personality”, a little different with colors and style. Masks serve the same purpose, to hide or protect a person. I guess that’s the job of a mask. Do you have a mask?

Psalm 44:21 wouldn’t God have found this out, since he knows the secrets of the heart?

Masks are uncomfortable and even awkward at first. You worry what others think of you, you constantly adjust it and try to make it look and feel better. At some point, it happens and you finally become comfortable and less awkward. The mask is an extension of who you are. You keep up with it and you embrace it. It seems to be a way of life.

We all have masks. They hide or protect a part of us. It’s a smile or a handshake when we aren’t feeling like smiling or shaking hands. It’s saying I am ok when I am not. It’s a past that we just want to forget and it’s hiding our true intentions. I guess that’s the job of a mask. Masks are uncomfortable and even awkward at first but at some point, it happens to all of us. We become comfortable and less awkward with our mask. It seems to be a way of life.

Spiritually speaking, it’s a dangerous place to be. Be mindful that God sees past the mask, He knows our secrets and He accepts us for who we are. He sees our true intentions and He desires to redirect our paths. Will you accept His offer of a new life, a fresh start? If we allow Him to work in our lives, something amazing happens. We remove the mask and finally face the world by exposing a part of who we are that we’ve desperately tried to hide or protect. At some point, it happens to all of us. We become comfortable and less awkward without our mask and we become comfortable and open with the Lord. With His help and acceptance, I can finally be free.

Thank you Lord for accepting and helping me when I can’t help myself. Spiritually speaking, that’s a good place to be.

Until we see each other again
