Looks can be Deceiving…Hanging On!

(Departing from ~The Ocean Series~ today)

Sometimes “looks can be deceiving.”  Case in point. Look at picture #1.  What a man!  He is a great climber, especially for his age!fullsizeoutput_36c0

As I have listened, prayed, studied and re-evaluated so many things in my life the last couple of weeks, this seemed so fitting.

A person can “look” good on the outside, but on the inside it is a different story.  We can “photoshop” pictures like we can our own lives.  We want it to look perfect…like we have accomplished something, or that we have it all together, when actually we sometimes don’t even get off the ground. Check out picture #2!

And actually, that is okay.  We can only do what we can do.  Quit putting pressure on yourself.  Once we surrender our lives to Christ we quit trying to “perform.”  We don’t have to pretend for anyone.

 

We can be who God designed us to be, and not pretend to be something we are not. Our lives are not perfect and there is pain sometimes.  Transparency and honesty bring healing.

 

And truthfully, sometimes we are just hanging on as best we can…
