Have you ever lived a lie? I've lived a few...
My marriage was a lie. My last relationship was a lie. And even the relationship in between was, because I was lying to myself.
I thought all these relationships were the truth until, slowly but surely, the real deal came to be exposed in each of them. Truths that included adultery, addiction and alternative lifestyles.
It’s one month since the latest lie was hammered home and I’m feeling particularly fragile because of it. It can be difficult to move forward when your world, and the trust and belief you had in someone, is turned upside down, even when you already suspected the truth and had evidence of it.
But the peace I need is available.
Jesus is that peace.
Jesus is right here with me offering peace, rest and comfort. He is reminding me that I am worthy of love, I am a beautiful woman - made whole and lovely for a purpose - and how one day I will know what true love is.
"My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him." - Psalm 62:1 NIV
