I spoke with a friend following her counseling session. She said, “I didn’t expect to cry. A deeper question hit me hard.” I replied, “I get it. Those questions are important. I often feel the same when I am in Scripture at times. I think it is because both are a truth journey. And truth is hard to get to and embrace sometimes.”
The tough questions are challenging. They can stir up some deep stuff in us. But if we’re not willing to go there, we limit our growth. We limit the authenticity of our perspective. Let’s not stop seeking truth in our lives. Let’s be humble enough to explore with a fervor, wrestle with tenacity, and respond with honesty. We will have to answer some questions again and again. Others will be easier. But if we’re willing to persevere with pure intent, we’ll find purpose in the process. Our tears will cultivate our faith.
