Come out from behind the curtain

Recently, it’s been amazing to watch others stepping out in boldness in so many ways, whether it’s facing a hurt from the past, coming out of anonymity to show the world who she is, or meeting new people. I began to think - it’s my turn. I can do something like that.

This blog is like a billboard. Not that its content isn’t true, but that I can plaster whatever I want others to see on it and keep the rest hidden. (I know some of you know me well enough to read between the lines) Yesterday, I was ready to take the leap of faith, type through the fear and step out from behind the curtain… that was yesterday.

Today, it’s 2 steps back. Looking for more curtains to shield me. Some sort of smoke and mirrors trick to satisfy but not raise suspicion. And simply admitting that is as vulnerable as I can allow myself to be right now. Maybe… that alone is a big enough step in the right direction.

And there’s always tomorrow…

Your time is coming...don't rush it; pray about it; feel good about it. God will honor you when you step out if you step out in His time :-)

Sweet dragonfly, there is always tomorrow. And if there isn't, then we're all the better for it :) I love you, sweet girl.

Praying for you now-and throughout the day-and I too have faith in you, I see your faith in HIM.

Love you, Tia

It's a little unnerving to be God's human clay, isn't it?

I keep praying for him to keep the chisel away, and to ease me through the transformation warmly, gently...

Praying that for you too. I love you... I believe in you... beyond measure.
