We live in a time where everyone is seeking to “live out their truth”. I recall the movie, “A Few Good Men”, and the famous line by the actor Jack Nicholson, “You Can’t Handle the Truth”.
I was reflecting on this topic recently thinking about how people can become so offensive to you because you seek to live your truth. Then I began to ponder the fact that we live in a society who proclaims that truth is all relative and it depends on the perspective of the individual. But doesn’t that take away from the very nature of what truth is? I believe in order to tackle this thought you must first ask yourself this question; what is the foundation of truth? I believe that truth has a root it springs from and I believe that foundation is The One and Only Creator. I believe My Maker is truth and His desire is for me to live a full authentic life. I believe He guides us to our truth. The closer we become to Him the more we learn our truth.
I believe when this piece is missing from the equation truth becomes distorted. I believe this is the reason why so many people end up living unfulfilled facade lives. The truth can be scary to face. But if you gather the courage to ask the question, “Who am I and what is my truth”; the response may not be what you would like to hear; but it is exactly the asking and seeking of the truth to this question, that leads to freedom and authentic living.
Can you handle the truth?
