A Pilgrim’s Note
TRUTH and TIME
“Truth and time walk hand in hand together.” Early in my ministry I began using this phrase to offer confidence and encouragement. When you speak the truth, time is on your side. In contrast, a lie lives with the fear of exposure in time. Truth sets you free. Yet there are experiences and periods of life when accusations and mistruths seem to overwhelm (dominate) the “real” truth. I needed an anchor to stabilize my mind and responses – that’s why I began using this phrase.
Now over these 60 years of ministry, I have found the phrase validated – most of the time in this lifetime. However, I have also learned that some mistruths will only be exposed when standing before the One who is the Truth. What looked like “gold” here on earth will be judged as “wood, hay and stubble.” “Truth and eternity walk hand in hand together.” Amen
Ps. 86:11 “Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth…”
