Five Minute Friday: Last


“Truthful lips endure forever,

    but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.”  Proverbs 12:19 {NAS}

There was a time when I thought that anything someone said about me even if it were lies would last forever. I felt that the hurt would never dull and the wounds would never heal.  In my heart even if the words were lies their impact was no less deep.  Then I saw this scripture.  It brought me a comfort I was longing for.  It allowed me to forgive for pains that were never apologized for.  I found comfort in this text and the words of King Solomon, this man known as the wisest of all.  Only the truth last forever.  A lying tongue is only a moment.  Therefore so are its words.

So when someone lies on me or decides that the truth is not worth sharing, I don’t worry anymore.  Worry is not meant for me.  God intends only good things for me, his daughter, his Princess, His good thing.  Instead I focus on the goodness he has promised me.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,

     “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer 29:11 {NIV}

Those are what I shall dwell on.  God’s plans for my.  Hope and future.  For lies do not last more than a moment.  Yet god’s love for me…that is eternal.  The lies, they are not permanent and therefore neither is the damage they may be meant to inflict.  But the joy of the Lord and His peace is what will last in my life.  When I focus on Him and His goodness they are what will surely last for me.
