What is truth? Do you ever wake from deep dreaming and feel lost in reality, wondering what was actually true from your dream, even weighted down by the emotions you were feeling? That was me today.
I felt so heavy in my spirit when I awoke , and I’m not sure exactly why, though I do know there was stress in my dream. After stumbling through my first moments, letting the dog out and helping my daughter get out the door to work, I settled down with my coffee and began to pray.
I asked God to remind me of all that was true, to help me remember and notice all the good in the reality around me. I heard the birds singing outside my window, saw the beautiful blue sky and sunshine 🌞, and focused on God’s love.
That’s my reality , my truth, at its core. Yes, somedays are gray and rainy, but no matter, the basics of who I am are grounded in being a part of God’s creation and trusting Him as my Father. Everything else pales in comparison to that Truth in my life.
The same is true for you. We all have significance, and security, and belonging as children of the one, true King residing in His creation with calling and purpose to be priests and rulers alongside His Son, our Brother, Jesus…all we need do is believe that Truth.
Now I’m back in the reality of this day. It’s not perfect, by a long shot, but I am at peace again and resting in the love of my Abba Father and the friendship of my Brother. That’s really all the Truth I need….
