There’s a whole lot going on in life and many times we have our share of life’s drama. We get to a point in life where we face challenges, storms arise, and oceans rage and then it looks like we’re going to sink. We have dark shades in our lives, tears on our pillows and stories we’re not proud to tell. We go out looking well dressed with smiles that could melt a heart, yet we have a lot of things concealed on the inside of us just like we have it concealed on our faces.
We have our pictures portraying a happy child, yet the very core matters that affect us stare at us in the face. We lie to the world that we’re happy which is nothing to debate because you don’t look like what you’re going through but the worst part of it all is that we lie to God even when He obviously knows the tiniest details of our lives, even the ones we seem to have forgotten. Actually there is no point carrying long faces around so the whole world would know that there are issues we’re dealing with but it’s really painful seeing beautiful faces with ugly cases. God wants us to be whole both on the inside and on the outside and the first step to achieving that is being sincere with God.
Being open with God is one thing believers find difficult which is quite baffling. There should be no other person we should be more open to than our maker. Really we find it interesting gisting and chatting with our friends which is really good but it’ll be really better if we convert that energy to talking with God with all openness. Come to think of it, He made us, fashioned us into that very person that we are, He understands everything about us, sometimes which we don’t even understand, that’s why being sincere with Him is really beneficial to us. It really makes no sense hiding from the one who understands you and would go any length to make sure you’re fine. One of the reasons why we find it really difficult opening up to God is that we have not come to understand that God is our friend and we can tell Him about ANYTHING because in actual sense He knows EVERYTHING.
Most of the time when someone finds it difficult to open up to another fellow, they have really not come to trust the person, we ask questions like wouldn’t she tell another person what i just told her?, wouldn’t she think I’m a bad person to have such thoughts on my mind? and a lot of other things we’re scared of because we can’t really trust the person’s heart and actions. If we really believe that our lives belong to God,we must learn to trust God with everything. He loves you too much to take your life for granted.
Sometimes it’s advisable to quit the routine mode of conversation with God and talk to Him like a friend when we find ourselves in challenging situations. Tell him sincerely about that guy you like, that lady you’re jealous of, that friend you’re mad at, God won’t beat you up, He’ll only help you deal with it. There’s too much going on in life not to be a praying lady, praying about anything and everything. Open up! God loves you just the way you are and will never condemn you because “there is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit”.
