How often do we look at another woman and think to ourself, “Does she have it together?” The funny thing is, many times that other woman has just looked at someone else and thought the same thing.
It may surprise you to know that some of those women who are tall, extremely witty and funny, or that petite lady who is cute and full of energy, or even the larger woman who we all know as jolly, curvy and often spontaneous; they too can have their own shadows lurking in the corners of their lives.
But the reason some of those ladies appear to have it together is they finally admitted, “I DON’T have it all together and I never did!” Like many of us, they struggle with what can’t be seen, with what is often hidden beneath the surface, and very rarely discussed. Things we prefer to keep hidden in the shadows.
At the point of realization, they finally took off their mask of pretense and began sharing their own journey. They found the light of God’s truth was what they needed to break through and penetrate even their deepest heartache. Once that was done, they found hope restored along with their child-like heart of faith.
The opening up of Your Word gives light.
It gives understanding to the child-like.
(Psalm 119:130 NLV)
Something wonderful was now happening in their lives. Specifically, they found that the more areas of their life they gave over to Christ, the more “together” their life became. Together, with Christ, they were able to see God’s illuminating truth and His power to change lives. Hope and joy replaced the shadows of their life. So now, they truly have an answer if asked, HOW they got their life together.
