There is a theory that our bodies know truth. The theory states that we know, internally feel, subconsciously and without intent or choice, the truth. We may tell our heart and minds the answer, but our heart knows the facts. We may believe something, purporting its validity and legitimacy, yet our heart recognizes and documents the reality of truth or fiction without ever needing of resolving the conflict within ourselves. It is difficult to come to grips with this theory; probably even harder to prove or disprove.
Last night I listened to a artist at the release of her first solo CD. The concert got off to a slow start however soon I found myself feeling the music in ways that were fresh, intense, and authentic. She sang from her heart, sharing the angst of her journey. She spoke the truth. The combination and result was uplifting, powerful, and filled with hope.
This isn’t the first time an artist has sung from the heart. Even when an artist speaks from their soul, truth is not always the foundation. Yet when the combination is present – the power, force, and hope contained is always palatable. I may not care for the music yet I appreciate its message. I may not always understand the intent yet I experience Hope. The setting and message may be filled with confusion, yet good always follows.
Far too often I find people presenting a God from their mind. The facts are on the table but there is no truth in them. The logic is crisp and defendable; yet it has no power. The missing piece is the experience which comes from letting God touch one’s heart. The combination of heart knowledge and truth generates a power our souls recognize. The facts are simply this, “Egyptians are mortal, not God, and their horses are flesh, not Spirit. When God gives the signal, helpers and helped alike will fall in a heap and share the same dirt grave.” (Isaiah 31.3) What happens next is our choice. We influence how much truth others will experience today.
