truth

In today’s world:

Truth is subjective and marketable
Love is a fleeting feeling
Integrity is extremely rare

We are living in a society where opinion and bias drive media and media drives society and money drives all of it. This week has been a rough one for me so far. I have found that there are many in the world who will not build into what they desire. They want ready made perfection and if it’s not offered, they will run to the newest, brightest, latest, greatest that appears to have what they want. Bouncing around from thing to thing, place to place, person to person. Newsflash: nothing is perfect. You must build what you want into your life. Throwing away people doesn’t solve much of anything.

I’m not sure even what to pray today in this world of lies and deception.

So, today i pray…

Psalm 15
Oh Lord, who may abide in Your tent?
Who may dwell on your holy hill?
He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,
and speaks truth in his heart.
He does not slander with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
in whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord;
he swears to his own hurt and does not change;
he does not put out his money at interest,
nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
he who does these things will never be shaken.

Today i will pray for integrity, truth, loyalty. Today i pray that even when things are hard, we would make the decision to be truthful with ourselves, truthful with others. Today i pray that we would not shy away from work, that we would invest in what we have to build it up and not tear it down, that we would choose love as an action and not just a fleeting feeling.

Today i will remember…

Psalm 51:1-4
Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness;
according to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions.
wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my sin is ever before me.
Against You, You only, I have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight,
so that You are justified when You speak and blameless when You judge.

May i remember my sin, may it ever be before me, that i might remember to repent for my blunders and forgive others as i am forgiven each day. Today i will pray that i remember Your forgiveness is ever before me and, in grace, to pass it along to the ones who fall.

today i pray for truth…

      Honestly, I have been trying to think of a way to answer this since I saw it, but there is no “easy” answer. There are many factors in every individual situation. And these are specific to each individual. I think that we should attempt to honor and glorify God in each thing we do, every relationship, as much as possible. I also think we are flawed sinners and that we need to rely on Him to walk thru every moment of the day. God bless you as you find your path.
