Wrestling With the Truth

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. ~ John 8:32

Wrestling with the truth is every man's nightmare.  Star Trek's fictional Captain James Kirk won special accommodation from Star Fleet when he reprogrammed the computers in the "Kobayashi Maru," a no-win scenario designed to test the character of cadets when they are confronted with impossible odds.

Truth cannot be reprogrammed.  It is the heavy-weight opponent who refuses to be pinned.  There is a better way to deal with truth than wrestle it in a no-win situation -- embrace it.  Admit your mistakes.  Be honest about who you are and why you are here.  Allow truth to be your team-mate rather than your adversary.  Your own unexpected journey in this New Year will begin as soon as you take the first step.  Are you ready?  Look in the mirror.  Truth is ready to set you free.
