Truth is defined as, “The state of being true”.  True is defined as, “in accordance with fact or reality.”  Feeling is defined as, “an emotional state or reaction.”

      So often we allow our feelings to dictate our actions.  I’ve done this for years.  I’ve acted and reacted to things I believed about myself and allowed those feelings to keep me trapped in a world of not feeling good enough; and as I look back over my life, I missed out on some wonderful experiences and opportunities.  The truly sad thing is, after taking a long and hard look at what I felt, what filled my head wasn’t truth.  It was my reaction to how I felt.  I had to dig deep, I had to rid my thoughts of negativity, and I had to find the truth - find what really defined me.   I found that truth, in looking to the one who created me.

      Sadly, we are still very much a Country divided.  The truth is, no matter who is in the White House, it is you and I who have control over how we react.  If we take a moment to think before we speak, and if we listen to hear each other, instead of listening to respond, we can make our part of the world better; and just think if we all did that – how different the entire country would be!  You see, it really is each individual response that allows us to collectively create change.

      I have, and will continue to pray for our Country and the unity of its people.  I will also share with you...there is nothing that will make you feel better than learning the truth of who you are with Jesus as the center of your life.

“Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”
— John 8:32
