I appreciated the opening scripture this was inspired by. Someone who is in the truth strongly agrees with 1 Samuel 12:24 "Only fear Jehovah, and serve him faithfully (or "in truth") with all your heart, for see what great things he has done for you."

It has been shown time and time again, when we give God our full truth and faith, and rely on Him for guidance and support, He will be there and show it in ways we never knew we needed.

Wonderful piece, hope your relationship with God is always true and continue to grow.
