2 Corinthians 3:12-18 Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are
very bold. We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face
to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing
away. But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil
remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed,
because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses
is read, a veil covers their hearts.  But whenever anyone turns to the
Lord, the veil is taken away.  Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the
Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  And we all, who with unveiled
faces contemplate[a] the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his
image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is
the Spirit.

When is it time to remove the mask?  It is time when you are sick and
tired of being sick and tired and ready to live your life according to
God’s plan for you as well as what you want to be.   All of our lives we
as women are trying to be who our parents and society wants us to
be.  Once you become a wife and mother you then become what you
should be according to what it is said a wife and mother should be.  
However, with all that, we fail to realize that we did not take into
account what GOD wants us to be.  In order to be happy with your life
you need to have your own identity and love you.  We put on that
mask while growing up, then when we become that loving wife and
mother.  Most of us women just forget about what we want to do or be
in life.  We even forget that we should seek GOD for guidance.  Some
of us didn’t even know that we could go to GOD for guidance or that
we had our own voice.  To know what you want, you must first know
who you are.  Get to know yourself first by removing the mask.  
Remove that mask and start being the person you were born to be.  
GOD did not put us here to be in bondage and do what others choose
for us to be or do.  Set yourself free and know that GOD is waiting for
you to remove the mask and become that woman that he designed for
you to be.  Removing that mask may take some fasting, praying, and
just seeking GOD.  The only way you are going to be able to do it
successfully is step out on faith and know that GOD has you and that
he is waiting on you so that he can guide you into that awesome
woman he designed you to be before you were even born.

When you know whose you are and who you are, trust me you will
not fail.  Find out your hearts desire and start working on what that is,
if you need training go back to school, whatever it will take then do it
so that you can become who and what GOD designed for  you and
your life.  However, as a wife and mother we will always be that
PROVERBS 31 woman.  Get to know you, I promise you, you will love
you and be like I did not know that about me.  It is a good feeling to be
able to be you according to GOD and not what others want you to be.  
Make a commitment with yourself today to start loving and learning
you.  Look in the mirror and tell yourself daily, girl I just love me some
you.  Your life will be so much better as well as those around you life
will be as well.  Verse 17 states “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom,” go after your freedom.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit,
and where the Spirit of the
Lord is, there is freedom,”
go after your freedom.
