My problem with telling lies was that one lie was never enough to stay out of trouble and my parents had an uncanny way of figuring out the truth! One of my most liberating discoveries was to realize that while the truth was not glamorous it carried the gold of peace in its handbag.
When I am finished with trying to appear holier or more successful than others God gives me a new opportunity to begin a journey with Him.
Jesus not only knows the truth about my situation but He is willing to walk with me and cleanse my heart from every lie. What a blessedness to simply be who we really are without excuse except the blood He shed. Other roads may look like they are paved with gold but the only way to the golden avenue is to walk right next to Jesus up the street we live on!
