Is it possible? The truth, that is? Can we be truth seekers, truth tellers and truth livers (that word kind of funny)? It seems as if we as a people have spiraled into an all-encompassing LIE! The lie is that, "The TRUTH no longer matters!" Lies are so easily justified that the truth seems to have no place in our lives. Go ahead and say it, "Aint' that the truth!" YES, it is the truth, but as you respond to the truth the lie is yet looming. In a moment the phone will ring and you will see an 800# and refrain from answering the phone. Now many of you will think that not answering the phone is not the lie. The lie would be to answer the phone and have your child (whom you punish for lying on their own behalf) tell the caller that you are not home. Well dear heart please allow me the opportunity to show where the lie begins. The very moment that your intent is to deceive! Not answering the phone is an attempt to make the caller believe that you are not home or that you unavailable. LIAR!
This is a no judgement zone, so let me be truthful and tell you that I do this at least twice a week! So as we would say when I was a child, "It takes one to know one!" But we both gotta do better!
I recently hosted an expert panel of fabulous women here in the great city of Atlanta - yes y'all I am Oprah Winfrey in the making! But back to the panel, more importantly back to the truth. Well one of those esteemed women was Lisa Bradley - Your Money Friend and what Mrs. Bradley said was, "When I got honest about my spending habits and admitted to myself that I was not good with managing money - my income went from 40,000.00 a year as a professor, to $3,000,000.00 in my own business." WHAT! The truth did that?! Yes the truth unlocked the blessing my friend. The truth unclogged the drain that the lies were stuffed in. The truth brings with it freedom, but YOU must seek it, speak it, and live it!
What Soul Truth is sitting inside of you waiting to be told? Is it a 3 million dollar truth? A heal your broken heart truth? A change your entire view on life truth?
Please don't allow the fictitious comfort of the lie keep you stuck.
