Reality and truth are hard to define. We all live with shifting perspectives, objectives and definitions.
Circumstances cloud our judgement. Pain makes us doubt what we thought we knew before.
Life constantly remoulds our thinking, stretches our boundaries.
We sense we are born for more than earthly striving. Our gaze begins to rise heavenwards.
Where can we turn for wisdom? Who will guide us into Truth?
What if we really believed what the Bible says, about how Truth is a person and not an idea?
Jesus came that we might have life in abundance as we place our faith and trust in Him.
He alone can fully answer the questioning soul’s concerns because He brings truth and reality as seen from God’s perspective.
Here, we see in part, understand but a little, comprehend only a fraction of what is taught and revealed, given and received.
We aim at heaven and get earth thrown in, but we still live with mystery into eternity.
So we grow in faith, life and maturity and learn to live into the answers to come.
And we finally become satisfied in the not knowing of all our heart desires to understand.
Because this we do know… we are deeply, unconditionally loved, here for a purpose beyond the present, brought into relationship with God, and able to trust Him in the silence and the dark as well as in the light.
The greatest reality is seen in divinity
The essence of all that is and exists
Expressions in every place
providing glimpses of grace
A revealing and concealing combined
An unfurling in hearts over time
Whispered sounds down corridors
of years, and roar of waterfalls
echoing in our ears
We see and sense Him all around
Because God is eager to be found
Dark valley-life with heaviness of cloud
acts like a muffler and a shroud
Each storm sends us to our knees
where we offer up our earnest pleas
Our reality too rocky to bear
until we sense Him drawing near
Offering faith-filled walk on water
to every drowning son and daughter
