Truth be told

by Elouise van der Merwe
(Lydenburg, Mpumalanga, South Africa )

I'm a careful observer by nature. I'm made that way. I long for truth. I used to search horrifically hard for almost truths, but then found real Truth in Jesus. And my aim is to get to know Him better, every day. To grow in awe of Him, and gain more understanding, bigger perspective and to really not miss the game plan He has out. I want to be smack in the middle of His game plan for me. I'm His, best thing that ever happened to me, and all my close observations, all my learning, all my figuring out of things and all the rest of me, is now really alive in Him. I love that He is Truth. I so love that Jesus is my answer and that it's going to take a lifetime to get to understand the full extent of Him. I love that it is 'above understanding'. I love the mystery and adventure of following Jesus, the crazy excitement, that feels to me like geuirilla warfare.
I love how you do your website and Facebook, Lois. Your pure heart shines through your writing. That is beautiful.

You had me in the first sentence, for I too find sooo much truth in nature,,, in God's perfect and original plan. Observing animals, the birth of new chicks with an inbuilt identity to scratch, eat, sleep, roost; or seeds that have lain dormant for years then spring to live given the right temperature and rain. So we too have all we need inside, waiting for the right season, the right conditions, to sprout and come forth into full fruit-bearing season. We just need to be patient, to seek Him, to listen for His guiding wisdom and trust - that He does work all things together for good, to let go of our own understanding, but in all things acknowledge Him and He will - as He promises - will direct our paths
