Truth - Now you see it and now you don't.

At times the truth is quite apparent.
One might say it's as plain as day.
Then comes a cloud to obscure the truth
Plunging us into the shadows of doubt.
Then truth comes back like a lightening bolt
Out of a clear blue sky or the dark of night.
It makes us jump right out of our pants
Like multiple flashes of cannons in war.
Sometimes only one flash and then the grave.
It may also be the glow of a bright star
Bidding us to seek out the mystery beneath.
The truth can be nebulous and illusive
Like the "ignis fatui" or will-o'-the-wisp,
Now you see it and now you don't, like 
The flame of the biblical rotating sword
That guards the padlocked gates of Eden.
Truth may be withheld if you don't seek it.
The Lord is near to all who call on him, 
So call on Him and He will answer you and
He will show you great and many truths.
Ask, and it will be given to you;
Seek, and you will find; knock, 
And it will be opened unto you.
