"Hide Your Crazy"

   "Run and hide your crazy and start acting like a lady" .That verse from Miranda Lambert"s song, "Mama's Broken Heart", has been running around in my mind. I say that a lot to my dog, Grace the Border Collie. She is the sweetest and most loving puppy-until she isn't. She does have a streak of
     It makes me think back to the years of my life when I was trying to "hide my crazy and act like a lady". You just can't hide things like sexual abuse,  I taught Bible classes, and went to women's conferences, trying hard to hide how different and damaged I felt inside. It wasn't until I was almost 50 and shared the abuse for the first time with my Alanon sponsor that I began to heal.
     Praise God! When I couldn't hide the craziness any longer, Jesus showed up. When I brought my old stuff out into the open, Jesus shined His light on it and He healed me step by step. "He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along", Psalm 40:2.
     I no longer have to "hide my crazy". Jesus is making me into the woman that He created me to be.
"This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new  person. The old life has gone, the new life has begun", 2 Corinthians 5:17.


  1. What the spiritual enemies do to make our lives miserable, He always turn into good when we start to understand His truth...And our true identities in Jesus. So, glory be to God! Take care sister...

  2. Enjoyed reading this post Peggy. Hugs to you dear one....

  3. "For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has before prepared that we should walk in them", Ephesians 2: 20.

    Not only His work for us, but His work in us.

  5. How easy it is to stuff our emotions and hide. How good that you were able to open up to the Lord and find true healing.
