No More Pretending...

Okay, we are into the New Year a couple weeks now. How are you doing with those resolutions? Did you make any this year, or just give up on even trying anymore? One of the things I am trying to keep focused on is being real. That's right...just be real. We are not expected to be perfect, but be real and let others see how we can face anything through the power of Jesus' name. With that thought in mind, I would like to share the following video of one of my favorite songs. It talks about just being humble and acknowledging that we don't have the answers and we need help. I'll include lyrics after the video, which will play the first verse and chorus only.

No More Pretending by Scott Krippayne
I can look good when I want to
I know the right things to say
I cover up what I don't want you to see
But you see it anyway
Maybe I think I can fool you
Maybe I'm fooling myself
I want to change but I don't know how
And I need your help

Chorus
No more pretending
No more pretending
Lord, I know I need to tell you the truth tonight
But everything is not alright in my life
And I need you like never before
I don't want to pretend anymore


I'm tired of hiding my weakness
I'm tired of trying to look strong
I don't want to say that everything's fine
When there's so much that's wrong
Tell me again that you love me
Though it's more than my heart understands
And I will lay down my disguises
And show You who I am

No more pretending
No more pretending
Lord, I know I need to tell you the truth tonight
But everything is not alright in my life
And I need you like never before
I don't want to pretend anymore


Can you relate? I can...and I realize I need the Lord more and more everyday. I pray that this was encouraging to you today. Please let me know if you have a special prayer request I can word on your behalf.

Oh, by the way, thanks Scott for giving me permission to use your song. I appreciate you taking the time to answer my request! If you would like to know more about Scott and his music, head over to his site by clicking here.
