Truth Be Told or Not

Why do we find it so hard to tell the truth?

Is it because it will cause hurt to someone or even yourself? Maybe its just unnatural or hard. There is also the fear factor of being rejected or others viewing us in a different light?. Who could manage a tarnished image? Whatever the reason we choose to lie or just omit the truth.

When we don’t speak the truth it is causes damage to our relationships. We are hurting ourselves and others by not speaking the truth. We may think we are preventing hurt by not speaking the truth but we are only making it worse. Without trust our relationships can not flourish. It can only be stifled until it is cut off, which in itself is death.

At what cost do we continue to omit the truth? How long will we continue to lie to ourselves and others? What environment will cause us to be honest with ourselves and others. When we are able to do this then there will be healing. Our heavenly father wants to heal us from the inside out. Being transparent is healthy. He was transparent with us and that is what he requires of us.

What is causing you from not being healthy? What mask are you wearing? What clothes do you need to shed in order to be your true self? It is when you are able to speak the truth in light of His word that healing will begin and relationships will flourish. Let the truth touch your heart and change you forever.

  1. Wonderful!! I tend to be truthful and honest..but to a point that I have no filter. As u can imagine..some don’t speak to me. I am not mean about what I say. I just simply say what’s on my mind. Since I’ve come to know God alot of my old friends and most of my family don’t speak to me because they don’t want to hear the truth..they’d rather live the lies the enemy feeds them. Sad but true. All I can do is pray for them.
