Adrienne & Israel Houghton Perform ‘Secrets’ Live On The Real
Israel Houghton is back and we’re here for all of it
The road to the man I have become.It’s a very jarring realization when you’ve been used to going to sleep on top of the world Then you wake up one day with the world on top of you & realize you’ve been living your entire young adult & adult life behind layers of filters, half-truths, compromises, & fake smiles. I’m sure it was there for protection sometimes… But mainly to either impress people or to keep them from discovering my true self. The fear of man is a crippling fear. No question.But the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom. Not the fear from being afraid, but the reverential fear that God can be trusted & that His process brings about transformation & freedom. Being human & showing human flaws & shortcomings brings about the ugly human criticism & comparison from others. Which can be hurtful. But it also created the most beautiful opportunity for God to do supernatural work in my life.
Which He is still doing.
I don’t recognize who I used to be. How I used to think. The regrettable actions & compromises I made peace with. I thank God for knocking me to the ground. For revealing Himself. Taking the scales, the mask, from my eyes, & lifting me back up a changed & grateful man.
Then setting me back on the road.
The road to DeMaskMe. To DeMaskUs.
