Hello everyone and welcome to Moments Spent with God! My prayer today; is that we will come to truly see how God loves us and accepts us, for who we are!
As I’ve been sitting here…preparing to write, I’ve been thinking on why we try to stand so strong during the difficult times and wear a mask that doesn’t even show our own true self? In other words, why are we allowing our own pride to keep us standing during the tough times, rather than falling humbly into the arms of the One, who truly understands each hurt and pain we experience in life?
I remember many times in my past, when I would try to hold tightly to myself and be strong; but over time, I came to see that I needed the tears of healing, to sooth the wounded moments that I was experiencing in my life.
Why is it that we always feel the need to stand strong on our own? Is it because we don’t want to admit that there is weakness in our life…or do we always feel the need to prove to ourselves and others; that we are a good person?
One thing I’ve come to see and understand throughout my life; is that God truly accepts us for who we are. We may wear a mask that attempts to cover up the pain and problems from within, while we are around others we know; but there is a God who sees through that mask and He knows every ounce of pain and heartache that is weighing our hearts down.
You know…we may feel the need to prove ourselves to others and we may feel like we have to live a perfect life, while we are around them; but I have come to see that moments like these only drain a person from life itself. You see…a person who lives for their own true self; doesn’t have to exhaust themselves into being something they aren’t because who they are comes naturally.
One of the reasons that God has become my best friend is because He accepts me for who I am. I don’t have to be anything but who He created me to be. When I’m hurting deep…I know that He can read the words of pain that are etched upon my heart and understand every broken need. When I’m angry and upset, I know that He won’t judge me but instead, He will walk beyond these difficult moments, to care for me and give me peace.
You know…maybe it’s time to remove the mask and allow the cleansing tears to flow, so we can fall humbly before the Lord. When He sees that we have exhausted ourselves, to a place where nothing remains, except for the rubble that has fallen from deep within us; that will be the time, when He will reach down and take us in His arms and hold us with a sustaining love.
May we truly find God to be the best friend that we could ever have, especially while walking through the difficult moments in life!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
