All the Truth I Need

Here’s to another Five Minute Friday post where I link up with other writers over at Lisa Jo Baker’s blog to write for a brief five minutes on the word prompt for the day. Join us at http://www.lisajobaker.com/five-minute-friday.

Truth

Jesus loves me, this I know…

It’s the one constant that holds me steady when this world careens and shifts like a Tilt-a-Whirl gone wild.

Jesus loves me, this I know…

Truth — the only thing strong enough to silence the accusations of not enough. Not good enough; not thin enough; not enough curves; not enough talent; not enough beauty; not enough intelligence; not enough worth. Simply. Not. Enough.

I find myself role-playing the part of Joshua from the vision found in Zechariah 3. Opposed by the accusations of Satan, I stand in the filth of all my sins. Lies would have me believe I am abandoned, condemned, alone, solitary.

Until Truth rises to stand near.

Jesus loves me, this I know…

And the Word of Truth speaks in my defense, moving to plead my case; rebuking my accuser; silencing the lies.

Jesus loves me, this I know…

Reaching across the expanse of time and eternity, arms outstretched on Calvary to bridge the gap between us.

Jesus loves me, this I know…

Removing the filthy rags of sin I’ve worn like a second skin for far too long.

Jesus loves me, this I know…

Clothing me with robes of His own righteousness, beautiful garments He has spun Himself. Covering me with grace upon grace. Silencing the lies for eternity.

Jesus loves me, this I know…

And that is all the Truth I need — for today, for tomorrow, and forever.
