Truth

What is truth? I've figured out that you can know the meaning of truth without actually even knowing any real truth. There comes a time in everyone's life where they need to figure out what they believe. Not what their parents believe, not what they've been taught to believe, but what is real and true for them. I'm at that point in my life right now.

I'm not into fake. I'm not into make believe. I'm into real. I'm into truth. I'm into life. Sometimes life is always about hype. It's about getting our next high. Whether that be a high on Jesus, or on some other worldly thing, is not really the point. The point is that hype doesn't last. It feels good, but not for long.

I realized that I can't base my relationship with Christ on hype. Because although I know its real, and I know its true, I also know its hard to make it last. We go through life on spiritual highs and spiritual lows. And when we get to a low point in our lives its very hard to hold onto the hype that we had after a convention, or a conference, or some other youth event. But instead if we have real truth. The truth that comes from God, that comes from what you've experienced to be real through him, then with that truth you can get through anything.

There's so much crap in this world that everyone just automatically takes as real and as true, and I'm so tired of it because it doesn't help me, it doesn't make me feel satisfied. That's why I'm on a quest for truth. I figure I'll be on this quest for some time now, and it might not ever end. But when I know that there is real truth out there, and when I've experienced God I know that slowly I'll be able to find it.

I'm done settling for something that's not real.

No matter what it is you're going after, if you go after a high or as I like the "Buzz" you'll never be satisfied as the buzz never lasts. Overall you've got a point, it's a hard thing to take when you realise that your parents make mistakes and that you're going to have to sort through what you agree with and what you don't. I'm actually currently reading an interesting book by james Macdonald right now called Way of Wisdom that's pretty interesting. It speaks of God's will in your life but it covers trying to find your life morals too. Good Blog
