I have been watching some struggles today. And pain. And hurt.
As the brilliant Ben Harper sang, “Everyone I know is in the fight of their lives.”
I am thinking about that right now. About the pain and the struggles that we all carry. All of us.
Somewhere along the way, we all got stupid. We decided we would all pretend. We would make it look like we had it all together. Maybe we think if we fool everybody else we might someday convince ourselves.
Hows that working out for us?
Let me mix a couple metaphors. We spend our lives living in a closet. And it so happens to be the closet where all our skeletons live. Living with those skeletons in the closet is pretty miserable.
There some people I am thinking about tonight. Maybe it’s you. I am kind of thinking about everyone I know. and also all the people I have never met.
I am praying for you tonight. I hope, even if you don’t see God the way I do, that you can hear that in the love it’s meant.
I am praying for you.
