I love when truth about myself is revealed to me. I am talking the good, the bad and the ugly, and let me tell you there is ample material in my life of all three.

This sort of truth is especially poignant to me when it is revealed to me through indirect means … someone speaking of their own life, reading a verse in the Bible, or, as in this case, a FaceBook status of someone on my feed.

The words that spoke truth about me came from co-host of the 700 Club Canada, author and speaker, Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson,

“Believing there is a God
and giving virtually no thought
to Him or His will for your life
is like being married
and never speaking to your spouse.”

Though I claim that I believe in God, in His perfect plan for my life. Though I claim to have given my heart wholly and fully to Him. Though I claim to be living with and for Him …

I am often guilty of not giving any thought to Him or to His will for my life.

I am guilty of not practicing what I preach.

I allow life to get too busy.

I allow priorities to be skewed.

I allow myself to worry about things that are not mine to worry about.

I forget to pray, to petition, to lay my days at the feet of the One who hears my voice before a word is on my tongue.

Yet, He is the faithful One, who waits for me to remember His presence in my life.

And like a scorched plant in the driest soil of the garden, when His truth rains down on us, He will remind us that He was and is our first love, and He will restore our strength.

“The LORD will guide you continually,
giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like an ever-flowing spring.
Isaiah 58:11
