Truth statements have a life in and of their own. When you hear a positive one with an open mind you feel different. One doesn’t even need to know that the statement is positive and true to sense the authenticity, power, and accuracy of the knowledge within. If you are trying to present an idea knowing the truth statements changes everything. Two key reasons; first is what holding the truth does for your self and the knowledge of the potential power your carry, the second is the outcome that follows when received by another who is open to possibilities.
There are two aspects of truth statements that I often find myself overlooking. Truth power doesn’t reveal itself when I close myself off to the process of accepting, reflecting, and acting on its message. It isn’t that truth isn’t powerful when one is closed to the idea; rather it is that the power of truth stays within itself and those around it travel on blind and dumb to what might be possible.
The second aspect of truth lies in what next when it is opened. Being open in itself isn’t enough. The choice is implicit and functional denial or embracing, internalizing, and sharing. There is no choice between the two extremes. Anything short of the full and complete embrace is wrapped in the mantle of a functional denial. I find the process of denial in my life creates an ongoing fight within that often confuses my head and tears at my heart. I may not know the battle ranges but I do sense the confusion, loss occurring while hope fades and flickers.
As I rested with God this morning I read a quote that I have heard for years. I find myself in awe of the power of the words and yet buried in sadness with my memories of denial.
“Jesus once again addressed them: ‘I am the world's Light. No one who follows me stumbles around in the darkness. I provide plenty of light to live in.’” (John 8.12)
Today, God willing, Truth will prevail!
