Exposed!

A friend shared this with me today. It was written by a young woman in NYC💝

We’ve all been exposed.

Corona is exposing us.

Exposing our weak sides.

Exposing our dark sides.

Exposing what normally lays far beneath the surface of our souls,

hidden by the invisible masks we wear.

Now exposed by the paper masks we can’t hide far enough behind.

Corona is exposing our addiction to comfort.

Our obsession with control.

Our compulsion to hoard.

Our protection of self.

Corona is peeling back our layers.

Tearing down our walls.

Revealing our illusions.

Leveling our best-laid plans.

Corona is exposing the gods we worship:

Our health

Our hurry

Our sense of security.

Our favorite lies

Our secret lusts

Our misplaced trust.

Corona is calling everything into question:

What is the church without a building?

What is my worth without an income?

How do we plan without certainty?

How do we love despite risk?

Corona is exposing me.

My mindless numbing

My endless scrolling

My careless words

My fragile nerves.

We’ve all been exposed.

Our junk laid bare.

Our fears made known.

The band-aid torn.

The masquerade done.

So what now? What’s left?

Clean hands

Clear eyes

Tender hearts.

What Corona reveals, God can heal.

Come Lord Jesus.

Have mercy on us.

Entry 8: I don’t know you

It’s all well and good that you know his name. After all he is an indiscrimanate Blesser. But the real question is this: Does He know you? Does He know your name?

Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Entry 7

Daddy, oh heavenly Daddy, sweet daddy, my Eze! this is how I plan to show off your amazing faithfulness in my life. I shall:

1. Max out that line of credit and get myself in a lot of debt to buy myself that latest Benz; that one like sister Emily’s, but it’ll be better, after all, I am moving from glory to glory.

2. Take pics of me and my Benz and post on Facebook and the IG!

3. People shall congratulate me and call me ‘woman of God’, ‘Favor’, ‘everything na double-double’

4. And all my enemies, including those in my village will see just how much you’ve blessed me, just how far you’ve brought me, your own anointed daughter.
