Behind the mask...who are you?

"Behind The Mask...Who Are You?
How many of us have lived behind a mask. Why do we allow the world to dictate to us who we are and who we strive to become. Don't we know that the world doesn't make us, we make the world.

Jehovah created in six days everything we need to function in this world. Yet we have turned from the truths of the WORD. When we were born, we were not born to live forever, because as sure as you were born, you are going to die. What ever happens between birth and death is given and left up to us. We have allowed the issues of the adversary to make us put on masks after the age of three.

Why three?...because everything that a person needs to know for the rest of their lives are learned by the age of three.

Where did we learned "all we need to know" by the age of three"? home...with what Jehovah God instituted..."FAMILY"...good, bad, or indifferent...Did we have a choice?! I was raised by good functional parents, both parents were at home. I don't know what it would have been like to come up in a single parent family.

What did I learn from my parents?...To be humble, obedient, respectful, forgiving, sharing, and myself and to others. When I left home at the age of 16 to attend Savannah State (College) University in 1957...I knew nothing outside of my father told me/prepared me to know that the world would devour me if I didnot take two degrees with me that man could/would not bestow upon me...those two degrees are CS/common sense and MW/mother's wit.

Four years I matriculated and earned a degree in Health, Physical Education, and Recreation in 1961. Seeking employment in a trouble world was the beginning of my 'MASK'. I was conditioned not to be myself, but to function with my head behind the MASK.

After wearing the MASK for 41 years for the enemy, I have learned to UNMASK myself and to live and function outside of the box. Little did I know that Jehovah God had a PURPOSE and PLAN for me as HE has given me one year beyond His promises years for those who will be obedient to Him.

As I approach my 72 birthday on March 7th, I am no longer wearing a MASK and living inside the BOX. Over the years...I have learned, shared, forgave, respected …now…I am FREE without death of the MASK and am FUNCTIONING outside of the BOX…as I continue to RESPECT, GIVE, and SHARE, with others…the WISDOM of my LIFELONG LEARNING…Thank you sweet HOLY SPIRIT.
