Life can so easily throw us off balance.
All it can take is a word, a look, a thought, a new problem.
Seeking the truth of the matter can be challenging.
Our senses are alert, heightened by sensitivity.
How do we decipher truth from lies, fact from fiction, knowing and believing from ignorance and misunderstanding?
When I keep my eyes focussed on my circumstances the pain can feel overwhelming.
I feel lost, alone, muddled and confused.
When I lift them to God’s word, seek His presence and listen to all He desires to impart to me, my eyes cease being clouded by suspicion, discouragement or fear and my vision becomes clear again.
My heart beats steady.
My thoughts begin to align more with His thoughts.
I am encouraged and strengthened to face another day, another problem, another set of unwelcome circumstances.
Taking off my worldly lenses and putting on spiritual ones helps keep my mind and heart tuned into His truth.
And the more I read, understand, pray, and believe God’s word, the more He fills me with a peace that transcends all circumstances.
I’m getting a bit philosophical here today as I join in with #fiveminutefriday ~ where we write freely, no worries about perfection, just for the sheer pleasure of seeing words fall on the page; then we link up, share the love, read one another’s posts and leave an encouraging comment ~ today’s prompt is:‘Truth’.
‘Seeing and believing’
They reflect what is incomplete
distort, show only in part,
unless you look into God’s mirror ~
will reveal all that is real
deep and true, lasting, honest
messages from His heart
The world will have you believe
you are not enough, you are inadequate,
you’re not up to scratch,
not a player, not a winner, not up to much,
not a great catch.
says in His word you are dear, deeply loved,
someone He longs to draw near to,
bring comfort, help, heal and restore,
bring peace, hope and joy
to your life once more.
You are more than enough
you are His precious beloved
…..and that’s the Truth.
No matter how you may feel
try to cling to what is real
about life and love as seen in God
and trust His opinion above all others
~ even your own.
Believe, receive and grow strong
in all your soul longs to know.
You are loved and you belong.
You are very welcome and warmly encouraged to join in.
