Day 38 - Masks
Find a quiet place where you can be alone to do this workout. When you get there, write down 3 things you struggle with in your life. Then write down 3 things that other people have done to you to hurt you. Take your time.
Read 2 Corinthians 3:16-18. Write out or underline the following words:
Sit silently for 60 seconds. After this, look at your list from the WARM-UP and circle the things on your list that you have hidden from other people. Write down why you have hidden these things.
Sit silently for ANOTHER 60 seconds. After this, look at your list from the WARM-UP and determine at least one thing you need to share with a trusted, faithful friend. Plan to do it. Text them now and set up a time to hang out and be real. If you don’t have a friend that you trust this way, ask God to connect you to someone that could be that kind of friend.
Pray: “Jesus, help me to be truthful with You and myself. Confirm in my heart that when I hide who I really am, nobody truly knows me. When I hide I never get to experience the love of others. When I hide I cannot love others well. When I hide I get stuck in my faith. I don’t want to hide behind a mask anymore. Please help me process the things I have done and the things that have been done to me—first with You and then with a trusted, faithful friend."
