Taking Off The Mask

We cover our faces daily with masks

To hide the pain

To hide our reality

To hide our sins.


We hope we won’t have to remove our masks

Because we will show the world

We are vulnerable

We cover our hearts daily with masks

To hide our pain

To run from our reality

To rationalize our sins.


Then God steps in front of us and removes our masks.

We feel naked

We feel vulnerable

We see our humanness.


When God steps in front of us and removes our masks

We feel His love

We experience His forgiveness

And we become FREE.

But I wonder, will I be able to receive or show love when I am so cautious and closed?
