I realised years ago that I no longer had to pretend to have it all together…that a scary thought, but it transformed my life.
Most of us will know what I mean when I say that I was a professional pretender. I had a mask for most things. Especially being English – we most certainly do not air our “dirty laundry.”
Yet, over time, Jesus revealed to me that when I admitted that I am weak – in whatever area I am struggling with – He meets me where I am so that I can carry on.
Weakness is our weapon in life because when we rely on God rather than our own effectiveness, it deepens our worship to Him. I feel most alive and powerful when I am on my knees in prayer because I’m not a conqueror until Christ is right by my side.
It’s time to stop being a professional pretender.
