I've written about this before: You are an imposter. So stop trying to get over it. Cause everyone else is an imposter too.
There has never been another time in the history of the world where 7.7 billion people have gone through a Pandemic in a world that is more connected, wired, and filtered.
So we are all imposters. There is no "normal."
But that doesn't mean we can't leverage our situations.
Sure we've got work to do. Hard work.
But perhaps we were created for such a time as this.
The Bible is filled with imposters.
Esther was an imposter. She wasn't slated to be Queen. She should've been suffering along with her relatives. But she risked her position to disclose that she was indeed an imposter.
Jesus was an imposter. He was God with skin on. He imposed himself into the world. And he keeps on imposing himself in our lives because he loves us so much.
So own that you are an imposter and impose God's love that stirs your soul by disrupting someone's life with that same love.
Imposters get attention. And if it's the right kind of attention, attention pointing to God, then that is indeed #HolyMischief.
Until Everyone Hears,
P.S. - My friend and colleague, Rev. Betsy Haas, recently sent an encouraging message out to parents who are doing so much during the Pandemic. You can read her post here.
Esther 4:14 - New Revised Standard Version
"For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?"
