Black Cow Eating Licorice at Midnight

By: Susan Bea Good

Congressman Darrel Issa needs night vision. Apparently Obama’s IRS finds the wide stroke permanent black marker indispensible when preparing documents headed for Republican Congressional inquiry.

It’s obvious the government does not want to reveal incriminating information. They have ways to obscure the truth from the people. But, eventually every secret comes out.

This week we discovered a  famliy member’s secret…kept for months. It was a dangerous one, which required drastic action to avoid permanent damage.

Truth can be painful, but often there is a soothing peace that follows its revelation.

I’ve found that even the smallest “truths” are liberating…whether in thought or action…true behavior is good. That shouldn’t be a surprise…God speaks often of the value of truth…even calling Himself the Truth.

So why don’t we offer more truth to ourselves and one another?  Because it isn’t easy…but it is really good. And that’s true!

“Behold, You delight in truth…and You teach me wisdom in the secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow…Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:6-10/ESV)

The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
