Remember that Game called, "Truth or Dare"?
In the game, you had to tell the truth or take the dare. My granddaughter Brookley was playing it the other day. I kept picking truth and she said, "Grammie, pick dare". I didn't want to pick dare because I didn't know what she might say. Then we started laughing and I picked dare. She said, "I dare you to smile".
TRUTH ~ The game took me back to being a teenager and I had played the game. I didn't like my dare and I refused to do it. Over time we learn to play some games and not to play some games. We have to be up for the truth or the dare. I choose to tell the truth.
DARE ~ I dare you to believe the word of God. Joyce Meyer wrote a book called, "I DARE YOU". It was about embracing life with a passion. Darlene "Speedy" bought me the book and I loved it. I stepped up and read it. Some dares are good for you. I highly recommend any of Joyce's books. She is a gifted woman of God.
TRUTH ~ Scriptures says this:
John 8:31-32 English Standard Version (ESV)The Truth Will Set You Free31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
DARE ~ I dare you to believe big! That's what God wants us to do in this life. Trust beyond limits and jump into the plan he has for our lives. We make a difference but we don't always see that. Behind closed doors are people who think about what we say and how we act. We can be a million miles away from a situation and feel as if we are in the room with someone. Our past reflects in ways we don't see and a new beginning happens when we believe God can change it.
TRUTH ~ Jesus loves you and wants the best for you! The truth he speaks of in John verse 32 is about freedom of mind and living. I personally has been trapped in wrong thinking at times and I need the word of God to set me free. The devil only lies to us and he can't tell the truth. Let his lies go and allow God to show you who you really are and he has created this new day to set your free.
Darlene always says this, "It's all about the freedom baby". Freedom in God and knowing who you are in God. I'm not who I was as a kid, teenager, a young adult or even yesterday. Each day of life I become stronger in my faith and trust in God. I am planted by the rivers of life and I refuse to give up believing big for my family, friends and those I just meet. God is a good God and I've made wrong choices. I had to dare myself to stop the negative and create the positive on a daily choices.
TRUTH ~ DARE
It all comes together today as freedom is our choice. It's the truth in living for God and he dares us at times to trust in those unknown times of life. He never leaves us or forsakes us. It's a new day with freedom in head and allow it to come out of your mouth. Go ahead and try it now, "It's all about the freedom".
God has created you and me to make a difference. I value your time and I do my best to keep my writing about 2 to 3 minutes. I pray for you, your family and friends. Go ahead take a smile with you today and let the love of God shine through you. Open a door for someone, say HI to someone or send a message of hope over text messages, email, phone call or once again, just a smile.
Philippians 4:13 King James Version (KJV)
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Happy new day!
