Are You Living a Double Life?
Updated: Feb 9, 2022
Read one woman's story of addiction, fear, and getting honest.
As sinful people we can be quick to judge another's pain. How often do we step back to take a deep look in our own mirrors? We all may know of someone who acts one way at church or Bible study and another with his/her friends or family. Is that you?
Perhaps this day, this moment, this time in our life is when we need to pull the curtain away from the dusty mirror and look at the image staring back at us.
Allowing #honesty to blaze forward may seem detrimental and painful beyond our understanding. But can we say, “I’m tired, weary, and ready to make a change.”
#God never leaves us where we are and is ready to step with us into what feels like a dark and scary place. The Bible says that the darkness shines as bright as day to God. In Him there is no darkness. Psalm 139 tells us that we can try to hide from God, covering up our insecurities, faults, and failures – but we can never escape from the Lord’s presence.
Here’s the question: What do I see when I look in the mirror? What is God nudging me to work on? How can I get honest with myself?
My friend, stepping into healing will be one of the best things you could ever do. Find freedom my friend – hope is waiting.
