Authentic? To be authentic means to reveal who we really are—the real us with all of our flaws and imperfections. Authentic: an uncomfortable word for some adult children of addicts who work hard to cover the shame of growing up in an addicted or dysfunctional home. However, it is through the total of our experiences, good and bad, that God can mold us into something beautiful. If you give your life to him, he can take all of the snags and tangles and weave them into the beautiful tapestry he pre-designed for you. God takes all our imperfections, all of our experiences and shapes them into something beautiful.
