I had a season in my life where I was surrounded by lies. I was married to a man who had a double life. His whole persona was based on a full encyclopedia-set of lies. His lies started unwinding about 6 months into our marriage. I felt like I was drowning in lies. I didn’t know what was true, what was a lie and frankly, I didn’t know who he was. As his lies were revealed, he became more and more like a stranger to me.
I would go to my close friends and ask them to tell me something that was true. I didn’t care what it was; the sky is blue, the sun rises in the east, we will have snow this winter, the news comes on at 5:00. Hearing truth helped me get my bearings. One of my friends went the extra mile and met with me once a week. She would read scripture to me and we’d talk about the truth it revealed. She planted eternal truth in my soul. The marriage ended. My feet were firm on a foundation of truth.
Today’s psalm is a “mic-drop” of truth, what else needs to be said? It’s an anchor rope of truth from beginning to end.
See you tomorrow for psalm 94.
