“The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” Psalm 145:18
Maybe it was because I misunderstood the love of God for so long that made being completely honest with him so hard. I cannot tell you when the switch happened, but I can tell you it is freedom. It reminds me of our kids and several stories come to mind. When they say they are sorry, I consider that a good place to start. What we are after is the truth. Actions and words have a source. Unraveling takes a bit of time, but is always worth it. My prayer is as they grow older, they will not hesitate to tell God the truth and know he is near. To walk through life free is truly being alive.
