Confessing the Truth


My mother always could tell when I was lying. I often invented some of the wildest excuses to avoid admitting the truth. Then she would cross her arms and look straight at me and say “Oh what a tangled web we weave.” Somewhere early on I decided it was way easier to fess up than to get punished first for my misdeed and then for lying.

The same is true with God. He already knows the truth so why do we have such a hard time confessing? Sometimes when we get caught in our own tangled web it is God’s loving discipline leading us the quickest way out of trouble and back to walk with Him.

Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word. Psalms 119:67 ESV

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
