Posting this afternoon at Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday. Today’s word is “truth”. Join the conversation by clicking on the button above.
In my five minutes of pondering truth, I know this: People in pain sometimes turn that pain against someone they love. The truth for a young acquaintance of mine is that on this Friday, she is afraid to return home. Afraid of what someone who is supposed to love her will do with the pain they carry in their own hearts. Afraid of the pain that might await her there.
I pray for truth for this dear young one. Truth that is seen and known and touched by those who can truly help end the pain — for both of them. And that once light is shed on this truth, she will find hope for a better tomorrow, for a future that isn’t defined by her Dad’s moods and anger.
Our God is the Father of Truth, I tell her. I assure her that her heavenly Father knows and He cares. We pray together and I hug her while tears roll down her cheeks. She has trusted me with her truth, and now the wheels are turning.
Praying today that truth will be known.
