Confrontations are hard. The one I did 5 years ago was especially so.

I knew the truth. I also knew shining the light on that truth would be life-changing.

Honestly, there was a part of me that wanted to ignore it, wanted to continue living pretending I didn't know. But I couldn't... I just couldn't.

Every core of my being knew that the truth needed to be spoken. It needed to be acknowledged... and I was the only one who would be able to do that.

God, Himself, had choreographed the events of the previous two days in a way that I could not deny it. It was right there IN MY FACE. The who's, the whats.... and more support that I could ever ask for. More than I ever knew could exist.

On one hand, it was very, very hard - and it was life-changing. On the other hand, the days that followed were intensely filled with the presence of God. Every day, I learned of His faithfulness, His leading.

Five years down the road, I am grateful for my willingness to speak the truth. I couldn't have lived those years covering up and ignoring it. Confrontation is hard, but living with denial is infinitely more so.
