The Mask
January 31, 2008



Lots of times people will mask who they really are by what they wear and by their countenance. Yes, people can be deceived by what’s on the outer layer yet God knows. Nothing is hidden from Him.

but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.
Psalm 139:12

Is your heart in good standing or is it bathing in wrong attitudes, judgments, and
un forgiveness? Is there someone who’s treated you unfairly and you want to give them back some of their own medicine? Has your heart been broken by the harshness of someone’s flippant words or actions? Perhaps you are jealous of a friend who may have been blessed with the very thing you have dreamed about having or doing? Maybe your mad at your spouse or you child for whatever reason and can not seem to let it go.

Did you put on your “best” today? Did you go through your day offering phony smiles, pretending to be happy, pretending that life is good, only to try and “mask” the turmoil that’s really taking place deep in your heart? Take a deep breath, take a very deep breath and know that most, if not all of us have done this at some point in our lives.

God created us and knew us before we were placed in our mother’s womb. He hurts when you hurt. He cries when you cry. He knows you better than you know yourself.


You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
Psalm 139:13-14



Cry out to God today. Confess, repent, forgive, be real, and be honest. A burden shared is a burden spared. His way is easy. His way is light. Let it all out and let it all go, for God has big shoulders. Nothing is too hard for our Lord. God will meet you right where you are. He has everything you need for your hearts repair. God knows and he understands.

Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Mathew 11:29-30

“O Sovereign LORD! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you!
Jeremiah 32:17
