It's easy to go through life wearing masks, pretending to be something you are not. Honesty is the best policy. Build your marriage with honest love.
A love that is secure in whose you are, and not by your personal accomplishments or the decorative masks you wear.

Certainly not a prideful attitude --- "I've got it all together!"
Really??? You don't! Nobody does.
You can pretend all you want. But eventually, your hiding place in your heart of pride will be found. You'll be pushed to make a change one way or another.
Relationships can't survive on whims and masks. Marriage isn't pretend. It's not playing house. It's real life moving forward or backward.
How do you see your marriage today?
How is your relationship with your spouse? Is it open and honest, all fears and flaws exposed?
Or are you hiding in the swamp of chaotic make believe?
It's time to climb out of your messy hiding place.
Honesty is the best policy.The K.I.S.S. ~ Love honestly!
When you're honest and sincere in heart, action, mind, and body, there's a commanding truthfulness that fills your life."The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith." ~ 1 Timothy 1:5
God wants to see your marriage succeed. He wants to see joy in your heart. He delights in the beauty of love for each other.
But you can't envelop yourself in joy and what God desires for you when you are wearing masks, pretending to be someone you're not. There is no sincerity when you can't be you.
You must be willing to break the mold of masks.
Honesty is the best policy.
So what is it going to take for you to break-free of the masks?
The party's over. No more masquerade balls. The time to focus on your marriage is now. Make each other a priority!
Whether or not you think your spouse will be onboard, you take the first step.
- Begin with a pure heart. Release the masks. Take them off so you can reveal the real you; the you God is designing, flaws and all.
- Open your heart to what God desires. See His vision for your life and your marriage. It's not about your agenda. God's agenda is the best agenda. So pay attention.
- Walk by faith. Take each step knowing God is leading you. It's not what you can do, but what God can do through you and in you.
And not because you have to, but because you want to. There's got to be this underlying attraction to do what's right in God's eyes regardless of the temptations in this world.
Choose to see honesty in love as an open door for your transformation and restoration, forgiveness and hope.
Your love in your marriage impacts the world you touch, both individually and as a couple.
Marriage has impact. Don't take it for granted. Be intentional with who you are in the relationship."Honesty is the best policy!"
