Removing The Spanx

Have you ever worn Spanx or a girdle? If you have, you know it’s terribly uncomfortable. It feels as if the life’s being squeezed out of you, you can hardly breathe and it hurts to sit for very long, but you look ten pounds lighter!
We spend a lot of time trying to look like something we’re not, don’t we? We all know full well, when the Spanx comes off, we’re STILL ten pounds fatter. Nothing’s really changed, it was a facade. Have you ever lived a Spanx kind of Christian life? Are you afraid to be real with people and with God?
You might be able to fool people, but God knows what you look like without the Spanx! *Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable. Hebrews 4:13. See, I told you!
He created you in His image, you’re good because of Him! He doesn’t want you trying to be something you’re not. He wants you to be the person HE created you to be.
Not sure who the real you is anymore? Take off the Spanx, so to speak, and “let it all hang out” before The Lord. Ask Him to help you tear down the walls that keep you from being real with yourself, your friends, and most importantly, Him. Talk to Him, lean on Him, there’s nothing He can’t handle.
