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.
