Today I am thankful for the liberation that Truth brings.
Approximately 1 year ago today - for 5 consecutive days, there was a type of silence, a span...that let me know a storm was coming in my personal life. It was God's way of saying "the time has come"... The silence spoke of a truth I didn't want to accept, to acknowledge.
For many years a battle waged within my mind and manifested itself in my life. Most of my adult life. The maturity of many bad seeds had reached their height, the bad fruit was about to be harvested and destroyed by a God I had come to know, love and trust.
Seeds of influence and innuendo, lies.
I was a prisoner in my own flesh and I desired such liberation even if it killed me. My mind was being renewed and I knew the difference, I knew the truth.
It was a painful process to observe and even more painful to experience. But I am thankful, I am free.
The silence still speaks an eternal truth that continues long past the crashing, clanging sound of the chains being broken. Even that faded into silence.
Thank you God for setting me free, and silencing the voice of the accuser, the one who told me lies, the one who sought to destroy me and keep me bound. Thank you for liberating my soul, my mind, my body, my spirit... You set me free! You set me free!
When there is silence, truth is being revealed...over and over again, the question is are we listening?
When we ourselves are silent, do we realize the depth of truth that is being spoken?
Reminds me of this song by Jason Upton...
Thank you God for everything!
