אמת – truth

I am joining with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Truth

When I honestly think about the concept of truth today, in light of life experience, I get a little frustrated. I have always loved the concept of truth and believed truth was simple, straightforward and beyond reproach. As life goes on and gets a little more complicated, truth seems to become less static than it used to be. The black and whiteness of my vision seems less and less helpful, needful or desired. When do you compromise on what you believe to be true, and when do you hold on with a grip fierce enough to withstand the disagreements and arguments? Maybe there will not be solid answers to cling to regarding this. I wish there were. I wish there was a list for every type of instance. I guess the Torah is the closest, but it still takes discernment and ears to hear G-d’s voice moment by moment. The daily walk with G-d where there is still no guarantee except that You are good, You are one and You are the living truth I long for.

    Visiting from FMF: So true. Sometimes it’s hard to known when the absolute truth needs to be stood on, and when it’s okay to leave something out. Things as minor as “what do you think of this outfit?” to “this person really hurt me and denies it… how much do I say, and to whom?” Tough decisions. Thankful for those steadfast truths you mentioned that are black and white, even when the world is grey around them.
