Do you ever tell a lie?

Even what is known as a "white lie?"
I mean...really.....a lie is a lie....is a lie.....no matter what the colour....right?
The thing is.....when ever we refuse to face anything that is "truth" something dies inside us!
Why...do you supose that is?

I imagine it could be...because we are made in His image....A God who does not lie.....so....when
He designed us....He made us in such a way, that when ever we actually speak....or live....a lie....
we are deprived inside!
Do you think that could be so?

We are designed...right from the beginning...when God created Adam and Eve, for truth....

and we can't function right...unless we live by that truth!

That is why, I think, when a rational human being, knows....that something is a lie, he can't
convince him or herself, it is the truth.

I am sure we have seen a lie detector in action?
Some one is trying to hide the truth, but not very convincingly!

Some one might be able to fool another person, but it is not so easy to fool a machine.

It seems to have something to do with the nervous system, and the lie detector senses this and the needle goes funny and tells every one..."Hey...he's telling a lie!"

Interesting...isn't it...that this little test machine shows the fact that we are made for truth and righteousness?
It is very important then, that we, as followers of Jesus Christ, learn to live according to His plan,
and face everything that is truth....even if it sometimes is unpleasant!
But after all....If we do follow after Him, and His resources, then He, through the Holy Spirit will work in us to make us the kind of people He wants us to be!

Thorns and thistles....

"Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you;  Gen 3 v 18:

I am not a gardener...never have been....my mun and dad both loved it, so did my older sister....I will admire any one's garden, but don't like nor want to do the work.
Give me some wool and a pair of knitting needles or a crochet hook and I will fill in my day easy...

Well, more than 6 months ago, now, I broke my arm......it has not healed, the bone has not come together, and I will need an operation. And it is still broken and it hurts!

The little bit of garden we do have....I looked after. We have concrete paths around the house, to save work, and would you believe there are weeds all in the cracks.
Man...are they hard to get out....with one hand!

I try to do 10 minutes a day, and just before my accident, I had it all cleared, but, you should see it now!

I could cry! My arm hurts.....
 This morning I looked at all the weeds and looked at the sky and asked God..."Why?
Why did we need weeds?...Couldn't it have been something else?"

I have to wait almost 3 months before I can have the operation....meanwhile....pain killers are the go!

I am now apologizing to God....He knows best!
In his word it always says...."And it came to pass..."

This tantrum I am having will also pass....
Thank You Lord for being so patient with me!
Bless you,
