Natural:


Have you ever taken a picture without fixing your hair or without any make-up on. That’s to say, natural? That’s who you really are, without anything artificial, tricks of beauty and without covering your imperfections.
That is how God see us, how we really are, with our fears and doubts, our virtues and our errors, our strength and our weakness, with our happiness and with our sadness. When we are alone, enclosed in four walls and there is no one there to see what we do or say, He is there, watching us, so detailed as an X-RAY, every action, thought and intention.
In front of Him there are no masks, there is no way to pretend, because God sees where no one can reach, we cannot trick God.
With Him there is no need to hold back. He won’t judge you, He doesn’t misunderstand you, and He isn’t waiting for you to make a mistake to condemn you. When you’re sad, and you want to show others that your okay, God knows you’re sad, there isn’t a way to hide a single detail.
So instead assume reality and do something, because God never gave up on you.
Be who you really are, real and transparent, if it’s necessary to change something that might not please God, do it. If you want to be better, try harder, fight against yourself. Even though it might be painful, don’t accept to use a mask and pretend to be something that you are not.

Be possitive about your self, and trust in God, because HE made you on His image and likeness! Genesis 1:26

So true, with God there is no need to hold back because He sees and knows everything that is going on inside of us. He sees our pain, fears,etc., and understands when no one else does and will never give up on us. If God hasn't given up on us, we shouldn't mask and give up on ourselves either.In school they would always teach us that "if at first you don't succeed try and try again even harder, persistence pays off in the end".
Thanks Mrs.Tania, kisses.

I believe this is the good thing with God, you can be who you are and he wont judge you for it, he would show what you need to change, and is up to you to decide.

I agree with this because God knows the real us. He knows what its on our heart and this reflected by our lives and actions

That's true we can not hide anything from God and I believe that we have to be change things that is not from God.
So that Him can bless us.

sometimes it's hard to believe how much love God can give... and it's because He is Love. :)

very true and really needed to be reminded of this.
There are times when we feel worst that is when we need to know that He is with us.

I so agree with you Mrs. Tania! The day I learned that we just have to be completely sincere with God was the my spiritual life started to grow. When I didn't feel like praying, I told God, "I don't feel like praying." When I didn't want to go to church I told God, "I don't want to go to church." When I knew I didn't yet love God I was sincere, "God I don't love you... but I want to." God know's we're not perfect, He knows EVERYTHING about us. Being sincere doesn't mean just saying 'good' things, it means saying everything to God.

I really like this blog Mrs Tania, and it is very true. There comes a point were you can not turn to your friends for help..or the pastors wife or even the pastors. When that time come God really wants us to turn to him, and speak openly, just like how we will open up to a friend.

He sees everything already that is within us. so why do we try to cover up. who are we deceiving, no one but ourselves. The sooner we humble ourselves to God, the sooner he will give us a hand to help us... like what the comment above said. If we do not feel like doing something tell God he will give us the strength for us to continue to do it.

True we can't hide anything from God because He created us and knows us better than anyone else. He just wants us to be honest with Him and He will show the way!With Him there's no reason to be wearing a mask. Thank You Mrs. Tania for sharing this with us readers.

Camila said...

Hello Mrs. Tania, I completely agree. God knows we better than ourselves, and when we are sincere with Him, He can really act in our lives. Thank you for the message.

The love of God is unconditional! Way before we even say our prayers, he knows what's in our mind! Many times before i started going to church, i was the type of person that would always live behind a mask. I would go places and act as one of the happiest person alive, but behind the mask i was a very depressing girl, i would most of the times go to bed crying. When i learned that i should not live like that, rather i should be myself, then that's when the Holy Spirit started molding and changing me. I can finally say that i do not need to live with a mask on anymore, thanks to God He has made me one of the happiest person!. I am so grateful and privileged!
Very strong and touching! Love this post.

It's great that God accepts us as we are. He is love, and will always love us. When you wear a mask you are carrying an extra piece of clothing. For sure, in the summer it will get hot and you have to take it off. Spiritually, its the same. There will be a time when it gets too hot and you can't breate because you have been under it for a long time. Remove tha mask, and allow God to do His work in you. He is waiting.
