I may not be enough for everyone but I am enough for me and the people that see me for ALL that I am. Today I was faced with the decision to take one step forward into my identity. I was not created to sit silent in the midst of a battle. I was not created to mask what God wants on display. I was not created to suffer under the weight of what is comfortable for others; the willingness to suffer for a greater cause is what I am called to and the two should not be mistaken again.
There is no shame in protecting my heart. There is no shame in stepping away from a false but familiar identity and stepping into the one I am meant for. There is no shame in creating boundaries. Today I was able to stake claim in who I am and make moves from a place of actual growth. Right before the mask came off, I cried, not because of what might be lost with its removal, but for the sadness of growth lost in the time it was on.
He had already written my lunch date in my journey and this change on my heart.
Beauty Behind The Mask Gala
There are others; some I am aware of and others have yet to reveal themselves. I will find the woman I am meant to be leaving the girl I was buried beneath a mound of heavy weighted masks. I am willing to look in the mirror unmasked and unashamed ready to see myself as I am seen by God. What about you? Are you wearing a mask? Are you struggling to live under its constant expectation?
I see you. The good news is that you are not alone. You have a mighty King backing your every move closer to Him.
