I have witnessed truth freeing moments my whole life! I know what the truth has done for my own heart and life. The weight of the burdens of this world are unbearably heavy. We carry the weight of sins made against us leaving scars, grudges, unforgiveness, emotional pain, mental pain, and sometimes physical. We carry the burden of regret from our own selfish, self-seeking sin. Our own sins bring along with them shame, guilt, emotional anguish, mental anguish, and often physical consequences. The weight that weighs the world down causes the world to want to drag everyone and everything down. Misery loves company.
In a world that is so full of lies it is hard to know what is true. Even amongst those that should be speaking the truth and setting truthful examples. Within my own life the only true TRUTH and FREEDOM has been found within the pages of God’s word. Everyday God speaks more truth into my heart making the lies of the world more and more clear.
The moments that I have seen God’s light of truth lift burdens off of others and my own life are what I live for and long for these days. What I am learning is that speaking truth is the only way. It is very hard and meets resistance, challenge, and sometimes rejection. In the end it is worth it as truth and love chips away at the scars left by a deceitful world.
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
