The Truth, and My Friends

These words struck me as I heard them on the radio:
"The trouble with truth is it never lies
And the trouble with wrong's that it's never right
So I rest my head under Your light"
The truth, like a mirror, shows exactly what stands before it. It may not be pretty, but it is what it is.

The thing about the truth is, it shows us where we are. Without an honest appraisal, we're lost. Without a compass of right and wrong, we're lost.

I am fortunate to have a circle of friends that act as a mirror for me. They speak the truth to me. They give me insight into my Self. And, they also stand with a perspective that is able to discern the Truth from all else that exists.

I will rest my head - and my heart - under Your light. Shine in the dark places, til it's all You.
