Is Your Life a Masquerade?

Is your life a masquerade? What kind of mask do you hide behind? Do you let the real you show or do you have a wall up to protect yourself from others?

So many people hide behind  a mask to protect themselves from being hurt because of past pains. Or because they are too embarresed to let others know the real person inside.

We all have masks of some sort from time to time.  My mask has been holiness.  I wanted others to think I was holy and pure and didn't want people to think less of me.  I was afraid of letting people know the real me because I still fall short of holiness, after all we all do to some extent or another.

I don't think I was actually pretending but I thought I really was holy.  Last week God revealed the real me that  I still get frustrated, angry and have the biggest big mouth around.  I so wanted to tell or help people find truth or tell them how to do everything.  But quite honestly it just isn't my place.

My place is to be more of a listener and encourager and teach people how to seek God for the answers not give all the answers.  So now my journey in life is to first be real with myself and second be real with others and let them know I don't have all the answers  but to point them into the direction to find them.

So to help you find out about the masquerade in your life look here: (masquerade)

One of the hardest things in life is to forgive.  It's hard to forgive others of the offenses they have done against you.  Some offenses are easier to forgive than others but what helps is giving it all to God and allowing him to help you work through your anger, hurt and pain.

But I have since learned of an even harder thing to forgive and that is your own self.  When you are the offender and you realize the pain you have caused its even harder to forgive ourself.  Sometimes its said that we are own worst enemy.  We need again to give all pains and hurts to God and ask him to help you walk this out.

Right now I am learning to control my tongue and control my anger, two really hard things to do.  This weekend I blew it.  I did everything I told myself not to do.  Now, the frustration lies in me, I'm not victim but the one who has caused the undo pain.  But I know my God is my forgiver and he is teaching me a lesson in life to walk away from criticism and learn to accept accusations because you know the truth and arguing gets you know were but causes strife and distance between you and others.

I can only say, I'm sorry and hopefully learn my lesson to stop talking and accept what is being said without arguement.  Thank you God for your forgiveness without him I could not forgive others  or even forgive myself.
