Innermost Parts

There have been a turn of events in the last few days that have made me think about that verse in the Bible where the writer states how God wants us to have truth in the innermost parts.

I was thinking what are my innermost parts and how do I want to know truth? I know that the opposite of truth would be living in denial or refusal to acknowledge the truth. Which doesn't change anything, I just refuse to admit it. The truth doesn't go away or change but one's denial just becomes deeper.

This is my best thought on what innermost parts are. For me that would be those places I don't want to go. Characteristics about myself, decisions I've made. Skeletons in the closet. Do I want to know the truth in those areas? I say yes but when it happens will I accept the truth? What if it's in area that I have denied for so long that it becomes a false reality for me.

I don't want to think that is the only place to be. The truth may not always be good news but pain to me and how I thought things were. One needs courage and hope to face the truth, that I've come to realize.

The Ozark Standard Revisionist Bible calls them "innards" . . . God wants truth in our innards . . .

Hmmm... Everything okay? Do we need to plan another coffee night next week?

And I think you're thinking of gizzards...

Skynyrd's Innards is a compilation of greatest hits.

aren't those turkey parts the giblets?

Erica said...

Jeni- I think a coffee night next week would be great :).
Digapigmy- I think giblets and gizzards are the same thing and I have not idea who Synyrd is

Oops, I messed up an important word. Take Two:
Giblets and gizzards are both turkey parts. Giblets include various parts including the gizzards.
For Diga: In math terms, all gizzards are giblets, but not all giblets are gizzards.

Coffee night next week is good for me. Tuesday again?
