Years ago, I prayed to be transparent, authentic and bold. And I believe that God has answered my prayer, and is continuing to do a work in me to make me more of these things- and other things, besides.
I am thankful.
The process of ripping off the masks and pretensions, is an excruciating process. Letting go of "who I want to be" and "who the world says I should be" and "what I want everyone to believe" is not easy.
It's vulnerable. And it's uncertain.
Yet it's amazingly beautiful.
May you experience the beauty of letting go, - M
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. - Isaiah 61:3
