Beyond Religion - INCOMPREHENSIBLE W. Anne Vega
Undaunted by the Police Chief’s comments, Perry made the most remarkable statement that still resonates in my soul, “You focus on facts. I focus on truth.” (Perry Mason, The Case of the Heartbroken Bride). It was then Joy Grace, that the light bulb went on. I now understand why God put Perry Mason’s name on my radar.”
With Joy Grace’s eyes wide with wonder, she said, “That is a remarkable story, I can’t wait to hear more. How did it end?”
Looking up in the distance, A. Soul pensively replied, “While I know God’s message was for and about His Bride, it was specifically focused on the truth of His Bride, not the facts. It’s so easy for us to get lost in facts, which are important, but we can’t forget that facts are not always what they appear to be. Truth will always be truth and will always prevail over facts.”
“A. Soul, you’re reflecting the mind of Christ,” said Joy Grace as silver, gold, sapphire, ruby and emerald tones emanated from her breath as she spoke. “Truth is the language of the Kingdom of Heaven. And God gave us the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, “who leads us into all truth.” (John 16:12). Among other things, He was sent to teach us Heaven’s language and show us Heaven’s lenses through which we are seen; which is God’s truth and not our facts. It’s incredible.”
In that in-between place of conscious unconsciousness, Emorie’s life flashed before her. Her earliest memory began when she accidently discovered a small baby blanket with a note pinned to it. Although she could barely read, she understood the message that became etched in her long-term memory that day, “This is Emorie Blythe Fullman, Peter’s child. She’s no use to me, just as her father wasn’t. Do what you want with her, just don’t involve me. F.”
She never shared her discovery of the note with her grandmother. And when she asked about her mother and father, her grandmother’s reply was that they both died in an accident. Distrusting others and feeling worthless, she attached to no one, yet gave herself to anyone who asked. Although there were many people in her life, she always felt alone, distant and detached. Even growing up in church, memorizing bible verses and repeating her confession of faith, her heart was alienated from God and anything spiritual. That short note, scribbled in haste on a blank sheet of paper, had become bookends in her life that shaped her identity.
