Writing is an opportunity for me to tell the truth.
Oftentimes it’s my truth I’m telling.
Sometimes I don’t realize this until I’m 200 words in deep.
Many times it’s God’s truth I’m inspired to tell, in repackaged ways but always authentically.
Lying is easy. Tell me who you want me to believe you are or what you imagine stuff to be.
Truth is not. Show me who you really are and be willing to stand in that with honesty wrapped around your waist.
Truth. It’s what we need. It’s custom built to set us free.
So, everytime I write I say to myself, “It’s time to tell the truth. What do I need to tell the truth about today?”
What regularly occurs in your life that causes you to ask the same self-reflecting question? What’s your answer?
