The Mask Of Laughter

You keep laughing because you are afraid that
if you stop the tears will begin to flow. When people look at you they are not
able to see the sadness in your heart behind the mask of laughter. You will not be able to hide the true emotion
of your heart forever.

In the past you became vulnerable and trusted
someone and your trust was violated.  You
promised yourself you would never open up in that way again. You have not allowed
yourself to become vulnerable in an attempt at self-protection.  You are tired of all this emotional labor. God
is about to take you on a labor-free journey to experience real joy. On this journey
He will help you release so much that has been pent-up inside your heart.

God is inviting you to trust Him by letting go
of this fear and the resulting control of your emotions.  The ones who truly love you will never shame
you in your place of weeping – they will embrace your newfound honesty.  This moment of release will become a threshold
to a new life of freedom and peace.
