What If We Were Real?


This post has been whirling around in my head and heart for a while now and I've debated on whether or not to write but here goes. I share from my heart and I hope that you can hear that.

I've been convicted lately with the question "What if we were real?" I think so many times we can hide behind our computer screens and make it appear that our lives are so wonderful by posting amazing posts on our blogs or posting only the positive Facebook statuses. Social media has become so popular these days and while it does have its benefits, I want to be real and genuine here. What if I shared with you that I only wear makeup 2 out of 7 days a week? What if I shared that I raise my voice at my boys too often? What if I shared that lately we haven't done too many preschool activities? Mainly because I am nursing a sweet 4 month old often and I'm a tired sleep deprived mama on top of that. Would you think less of me? Would you still read my blog or follow my blog? I hope so. My heart's desire when starting this blog a year ago was to share with other stay at home mommies the activities that they too could do with their little ones. In the process I have met an amazing group of blogging mamas and learned so much! My heart's desire is still to share what we are learning and doing, but I desire to share that in a real, genuine way. I too have hard days. I call my sis or dearest friends and say "HELP! I'm about to lose it again!" So if you are having one of those hard days today, please take heart and know that you are not alone. 1 Peter 5:7 says Cast your cares on the Lord, for he cares for you. So I encourage you to cast your cares upon our God who loves you so!

I love the lyrics to this awesome song my Mandisa! She says it so well!!

 



"What If We Were Real"

Well, I'm tired of saying everything
I feel like I'm supposed to say
I'm tired of smiling all the time
I wanna throw the mask away
Sometimes you just have a bad day
Sometimes you just wanna scream
Tell me I'm not the only one
Tell me that you feel just like me

We keep tryin to make it look so nice
And we keep hidin' what's goin on inside
But what if I share my brokenness
What if you share how you feel
And what if we weren't afraid of this crazy mess

What if we were real
What if we were real

I'm over hidin my tears
I think I'm gonna let em' go
I'm over actin so strong
When I ain't even in control
We make it so complicated
But why does it have to be
Why can't we open our hearts and let everybody see

We keep tryin to make it look so nice
And we keep hidin' what's goin on inside
But what if I share my brokenness
What if you share how you feel
And what if we weren't afraid of this crazy mess

What if we were real

We'd think a little less of ourselves
We'd care about someone else
'Cause we'd know just how they feel
Maybe we could let someone love us
Maybe we'd a little more like Jesus
Why can't we learn to real

Na,na,na,na,na,na,na(yeah,yeah)
Na,na,na,na,na,na,na


We keep tryin to make it look so nice
And we keep hidin' what's goin on inside
But what if I share my brokenness
What if you share how you feel
And what if we weren't afraid of this crazy mess

What if we were real

You've got to be real
You've got to be real
You've got to be real
You've got to
You've got to

Na,na,na,na,na,na,na
Na,na,na,na,na..

So here is to more authentic, real, writing and sharing. Blessings to you and yours,
Trina
