So, here’s the deal… Fridays are for fun.
Fridays are for free-falling and writing fearlessly.
Fridays are for linking up with some other fun and fearless free-fallers.
Unedited writing that’s good for the soul – You are always welcome to join us…
The truth is out there…
Yes, I “went” there – straight to the pages (or episodes) of X-Files. Starring FBI agents Mulder and Scully.
I became a fan of this TV show years ago – back when all the DVDs came in a case and included a movie or two. I was hooked.
But talk about a mirror to our society… What truth was out there? Lies. Buried under truth. Buried under lies. If you didn’t keep track of the ultimate mythology to the show, you could easily get lost. Watching them back to back helps you keep track of whether those aliens were real, or fabricated to fool Mulder….or were they real again in the end??? (Time for another movie I hear)
I can watch just about anything and find the good vs evil or truth vs lies. There’s always a lesson to be learned.
Here’s what I have discovered about those good life-lessons:
-sometimes they’re found in the lies
-sometimes they’re found in the truth
The devil likes to prowl around like a lion I hear, waiting to devour his prey. He’s not always dressed as the lion though… He’s dressed as “happy” “upbeat” “spiritual” “self-worth” “determination” and many other avenues that are for sale out there on the book shelves and on the internet and on TV.
In my life, God’s truth always rises to the surface, but the view through that flat screen isn’t always clear…
Check your facts… Read the roadmap … God’s Word can be that lamp to your feet to help you avoid the pitfalls that are out there to drag you astray from HIS truth.
1 Peter 5:8
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
