Day 5: Unmasked Reality


One moment life feels like it used to

because you are doing what you used to do

before LIVING MASKED.

The MASK has become a reminder that we are not in control.

But were we really in control before MASKS?

Think about it.

Could we control going to the ER?

Could we control watching a love one die?

Could we control the weather?

Could we control uncertainty?

Living MASKED is a REALITY in this moment of time

and it is causing such WEARINESS

Are you getting weary in the wait?

Are you weary of being weary? 

Are you weary of being uncertain? 

Are you weary of waiting for something to change?

Are you weary with conflict? 

Are you weary of fear? 

Are you just plain ole weary? 

I am. 

I feel like I am stuck in a fishbowl looking through glass 

just waiting for the breakthrough 

of when will uncertainty, conflict, fear, & death go away. 

But then I am gently reminded that we are living in a

MASKED REALITY because

REALITY is here.

For REALITY is REST in weariness the moment we come

to the ONE who asks us to come.

For REALITY is CERTAINTY because

of the ONE who is always CERTAIN about HIS plans for you & me. 

For REALITY is CHANGE

because GOD doesn’t keep us where we are as HE is taking us to greater depths. 

For REALITY is RECONCILIATION

in all conflict because HIS FORGIVENESS removes all bitterness. 

For REALITY is FAITH

that takes away all fear because

FAITH is the REALITY in the midst of 

weariness, uncertainty, change, fear. & conflict.

So what if SOMENE came to your home and told you

that you could have REST despite the WEARINESS would you want it~

Or

would you slam the door and tell them to go away? 

Or

would you want to hear more about it

because you are at the end of your rope? 

Well, 

HE’S knocking. 

You hear it. You want it. 

You opened the door before, but now you are too WEARY

to believe you can have that REST now because you are just too tired. 

Knock. Knock. Knock. 

You open the door a crack

and hear

"COME TO ME ALL who are WEARY & burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28)

Do you come? 

Knock. Knock. Knock. 

Never be too weary

to COME to the ONE who is knocking all hours of the day and night

because 

when you COME TO HIM you never have to wear a

MASK

because

HE is REALITY.

where we always

LIVE UNMASKED

in

"THE SECRET PLACE" (listen to the song below)
