While we may wish certain issues simply did not exist, if they do and we don’t deal with them, they can destroy us and our relationships. There is a helpful acronym: Don’t Even Notice I Am Lying to myself. Scripture tells us that the truth will set us free (John 8:32) although at first it hurts. Be courageous enough to tell yourself the truth about troubling matters, and then take appropriate action.
