Truth Be Told

Conversation with my husband last night and he told me some truth that I did not like to hear about myself. I wasn’t sure if it was just Satan discouraging me and that what he was saying wasn’t really the truth or if it was the truth and God was wanting to speak to my heart. I woke up to a devotion titled “Grow Up” with this verse;

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up….” Ephesians 4:15, NIV

I have a peace that it was indeed God and that my husband was right. As much as I didn’t want to hear it, and it hurt, and it was discouraging, and I felt like a failure, it was plain simply true. Without truth its impossible to grow. So, I swallow my pride and decide do I want to change? Do I want to be like Jesus? Do I want to set an example to my children, a mom and wife, who loves the Lord and isn’t prideful, and accepts criticism. Yes, I do. So I turn the One who accepts me as I am and molds me into who I am suppose to be. And I sing “There is power in the name of Jesus, break every chain, break every chain!”.
