We have a new WM's(women's ministry) director at our church...she is a very long time friend of mine and sister in Christ. What a blessing she is to our church... in so many ways! Last night at our monthly meeting she hosted a "Masquerade Party" for us....it was fun and exciting but,the word she brought us later revealed the true meeting behind the mask. We sometimes seemingly hide behind mask..trying to hold back from God those "Secret Places" we rather not allowed him to have access to. When for our own good we should remove our mask,let his light shine through us and bring healing to our troubled souls....Then and only then,can we be true living breathing vessels of God ...to bring glory to God and his kingdom....Being whole to love wholly and freely ....no pretenses...no hidden places....no hypocrisy! I desire to live the truth....to be like Christ. I must decrease,so that he can increase in me....When people see me...I so desire that they may see Jesus...his light shining bright and clear through me.
I for one was touched by what my dear sister taught us through God's word....I am truly going to work on letting down some walls,taking off some mask and guards so that I can be all he needs me to be,to work for him and his kingdom here on earth. I don't desire to be a broken vessel and I am tired of letting Satan defeat me by keeping me down and burdened with so great a load of heaviness....As my sister quoted last night....
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-3O
So ..do you too hide behind a mask at times.....its a good question to ask ourselves...don't you think?
