Hey there! Don't mind me. I was just hiding in the darkness back here in my secrets, which, I don't know why we do.
Why do we do that? How do we hide in our secrets? Why don't we bring them out into the light and get exposed? Like, what do we think, what's in here that we think is gonna protect us?
Because even if people love us when they haven't figured out all our secrets, then we're always left with that secret suspicion that if they knew the real us, they wouldn't love us. So, even if you're loved, but you're keeping all your secrets, you're not really being loved. They're just loving the projection of you you're allowing them to see.
So, we wrote the song called "Secrets", because I was kind of tired of watching leader after leader after leader blow up in flames when some secret allegation came out. Like, where did that start? Why didn't they get that in the in the open a long time ago, you know? James 5 says confess your sins one to another and pray for each other that you might be healed. I always was thought that was interesting. It says in 1st John if we confess our sins to Him, He's faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. So, we confess to God, we get forgiven. We confess to other people and we get healed. Healed from what? I think namely we get healed from the mask we've been wearing. We get healed from the fake, awesome person we're trying to convince everyone we are. We get healed from trying to be our own savior, because when you step into the light, and people really see you for who you really are, then you can actually be loved for who you really are.
So, whatever secrets you got, bring them into the light. If people don't like that person, you're still gonna find healing, because now you can find out who does actually like you.
