Stop Wearing Masks and Playing Games

Since God has so generously let us in on what he is doing, we’re not about to throw up our hands and walk off the job just because we run into occasional hard times. We refuse to wear masks and play games. We don’t maneuver and manipulate behind the scenes. And we don’t twist God’s Word to suit ourselves. Rather, we keep everything we do and say out in the open, the whole truth on display, so that those who want to can see and judge for themselves in the presence of God.”

2 Cor. 4:1-2 (MsgB)

There are times when all of us need to be still and quiet. Sometimes peaceful. Sometimes struggling. Always listening. And there are times when saying nothing actually says the most.

There is also a time to scream. Not a “scream like you’re a girl” scream, but the scream of an anguished soul longing to be heard.  No masks. No games. A time to fight and to stand for the Truth.

And that time is now…

It’s time to make a difference. Not for me. Not for my family. But out of the obedience of what God has called us all to do: love others and make an impact wherever we can. The challenge is in the here and now.

My brain has been full of ideas lately…I think they’re God-sized ideas. I’m trying not to limit them, but doubt sometimes gets in the way. In the next few months I’m going to share some of these ideas here on this blog and I’m going to ask you to join me in the journey. I need your help, your feedback, your suggestions, and yes, even your criticisms. I’ll be launching a new project, writing feverishly and pretty much throwing caution to the wind.

I may have been thrown down a few times, but I can assure you…I am NOT broken. It’s time. Will you join me?

“…You know for yourselves that we’re not much to look at. We’ve been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side; we’ve been thrown down, but we haven’t broken. 2 Cor. 4:8b-9 (MsgB)
