For a good portion of my life, I’ve been hiding! I didn’t realize it until my confidence began to unravel and I became riddled with shame and self-doubt. Maybe I was going through a midlife crisis or something else. Whatever was happening, it was terrifying and no matter what I tried, I couldn’t shake the feelings of uncertainty and feeling lost. It was then, the journey of showing up for my life began.
I’m a follower of Jesus and, of course, I’m supposed to be filled with faith and anointing, right!? Well, when things began to breakdown in my soul, I entered a crisis of faith that has changed my life and my faith forever! When you’re faith is tested beyond what you have the power to endure, that’s when you lean on God even more. You can’t know what you truly believe and are convinced of unless what you believe is put in the fire and proved. And that’s what this season of my life has been all about!
I was confronted with the question “where are you?” from God! Putting on my mask in church and serving in ministry while struggling and hurting inside. I had maybe two close friends that I confided in at the time but no one else knew what I was going through. However, I found out later, that people could see it on my face and in my body. I was in trouble and thought I was hiding it well, but it began to brim over into every area of life.
The core message in the music and inspiration here is that we are deeply and completely loved and accepted by God and out of that love we are to show up for our lives. The enemy of our souls is a liar and the father of lies and we’ve bought into the lies that we are without value, not enough, and worthless and it’s in buying into those lies that we live lives of hiding, pretense, and shame. As a consequence, we never show up to be, fully, who God created us to be and to make the contribution that is the US to the world.
My prayer is that you’ll be met here with the Spirit of God and Grace for transformation and healing.
