Ahhhh....such good times.
Priscilla doesn't give you all of the answers.
She asks a lot of questions.
Questions that make you think all day long.
This week's lesson begins by talking about putting on
the Belt of Truth.
I've heard it all my life.
Rolled like water off a duck's back.
Until I read the questions in my lesson.
That, and the other way of putting this ...
"girding your loins".
Also a term I've heard all my life.
Tried not to think on this one too much.
It sounds icky, right??
Well, Priscilla asks why we are instructed to start with this item
for the waist. She points out that our waist area is our core area.
Without strong muscles and protection at our core the rest of us
is meaningless. Good point! I've been working on my core muscles
due to some post op complications that require my attention.
It is amazing how much difference the strengthening of those muscles
makes in my daily life.
Now, to put on a belt of truth, or to gird my loins with truth has new meaning.
Truth has to come first.
How else would we know what our battle is for?
Weapons mean nothing without a proper purpose.
How would we recognize the enemy?
I confess that when I first read the questions in our lessons I left
a bunch of stuff blank.
I needed to think on it for a while.
And I'm glad I did.
This may seem simple and not profound to you....
if you don't ponder it, it will.
But over time this worms its way in deep to your thoughts
and makes wonderful sense.
Now I hate to move forward because I just want to keep
digging deeper into this wonderful truth about truth.
Gird your loins, people!
Our world needs more warrior princesses
who are starting from
the right place!!
