Faking my way through life

There it is again. It hits you in the middle of the day. That feeling that you don’t belong. That undeniable sensation that this a play — and you are just a bit actor.

They might find me out. That I am an imposter.

In our heart of hearts, we do not want to be left alone, without a God. We don’t the crowds to see that we have been faking this confidence our entire lives.

Having looked everywhere else for meaning, the supernatural world is the only venue left. I can take the mask off.

For the millions who continue to wander around the abyss, cut from any sense of meaning, we can only pity and pray for them. They have an answer for their loneliness. Yet, because of their hard hearts, they choose isolation over God

Martin Luther simply stated “Bless us, O. Lord, yea, even curse us — but please be not silent.”

We desperately need the strength of an infinite God who knows us better than we know ourselves.

  2. You too? Nice to see that honesty.I bounce back and forth between complete confidence and worry of the imposter syndrome. The only solution is complete surrender to God, every day.

    Your honesty is so refreshing. I have allowed the "imposter syndrome" to keep me from so many things. I only recently discovered that many others struggle with the same hidden secret.Thank you for your honest voice and your insight. I'm glad I found your blog, and I plan to visit again!Kristen in Oklahoma Cityhttp://thiswalk.wordpress.com

  4. What an honest post.I am an imposter…not deliberately but it's part of my fallen nature as a worker. The good news of God's acceptance and love for me is the hope I need to live and love authentically. He alone can deliver me.BTW, I blogged about authenticity and leadership if you're interestedhttp://everysquareinch.blogspot.com/2009/03/gospel-and-authentic-leadership.html

    Why do I follow Jesus, in the beginning it was because He was all I had left… the world is a vampire…
