How many times I left off doing the right thing,
Telling the right thing ...
Because it was the hard thing.
Because I looked at man and gave him power in my mind to determine, decide, and declare my fate.
But it was only in my mind ...
And it was a lie.
Nothing more.
God works in truth,
 God helps us to tell the truth,
 And God is the Truth.
This is the Gospel truth.
When we tell the truth and are more interested in what God says than what man thinks, then we begin to live out the truth and we begin to discover grace and I think we are, at this point, at the beginning of finding our true place with God.
Many of you are scared of hidden truths and you've tried very hard to tuck them away.
You've told me so.
You speak about the truth,
You know the truth,
But you are not living the truth and you are not telling the truth,
Because you fear man more than God ...
And that is the truth.
Sometimes the truth is very hard and painful to tell;
But a lie is so much harder to live.
Around every truth is the silver-lining of grace.
Tell it so you can experience it.
Tell it ...
So you can live.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:32
