Sometimes we just have to speak the truth

determine to know

Sometimes I just can’t believe the truth.

I can’t believe that there is a love that is great enough to die and live for me.

I can’t believe that I am chosen.

I can’t believe that he calls me holy.

I can’t believe that I can boldly come to grace’s throne.

The litany of my regrets and mistakes are clear under my magnifying glass. But what if I were to step back and look at my mistakes through the magnifying glass of grace. Could I believe the truth that says I am forgiven? Could I believe that I am worthy?

I think so?

But I have to determine to know truth. I have to determine to know God on his terms, not mine. I have to be willing to surrender my ideas of truth for his truth. I have to be willing to remove my critical magnifying glass from my life and replace it with his magnifying glass and allow the Holy Spirit to come along and whisper change and acceptance.

I am singing the words of this song to myself.  I am determined to know Truth. I am determined to know Christ in order to know his truth. I hope you will join me.

    1. This a great question and this post is about the lies we tell ourselves that harm us and the truth that sets us free. It’s far to easy for me to believe the lies of the Enemy than to believe the truth God speaks over me and sometimes I just need to give myself a good old fashioned talking to because even though I know the truth about my identity in Christ I sometimes don’t feel the truth.
