*sigh* Remember the story of Peter Pan? Living in a land where humans can fly in the air and live with no cares or worries. Wouldn’t that be great? Peter spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang the Lost Boys.
Have you ever known someone who lives the life they have created in their mind; The life that is their reality? Have you ever read someone’s Facebook status or Tweet and scratched your head after reading it? What drives people to be one way in the public eye and another way behind closed doors?
Unfortunately, it seems we live in a world plagued with showcasing and maintaining an image. People are used to sweeping dirt and grime under a rug and walking over it daily; believing in the idea “out of sight, out of mind.” The problem with living a life like this is the energy involved with the upkeep of a facade. It takes an exorbitant amount of energy to be someone you are not, to live a life that is not yours and to portray a story that is fiction.
Now I definitely don’t have the answer to the age old question “Who are You?”; only you can truly answer that. What I can tell you is the only way to live a life of truth and pure joy is to lift the rug, sweep out the dust and grime, deal with your issues full force and head on and press forward! Jesus never told us that we would not have trials and tribulations, He told us to be of good cheer, because He has already overcame them all. There is no need to run away from troubles and realities – we must stand confidently in front of them, stare them down and regain the victory over our lives!
