5-minute Friday {true}


Keep expectations low, ask questions, be careful with your trust, don’t judge…..that was her way. Her example and how I learned to be. It’s a way to protect yourself, your emotions.

Divorce negates true love. Lies and deceit erase true words. Politics…..well, surely is an antonym for true.

I need to know true love and true words and see actions prove people to be true and it’s what we want to believe. I want to believe the photoshopped photo is true. I want to believe the good but have learned to wait. To let the true be proved.

In the midst of the doubt and hesitation she believed deeply in the One true. In the Truth. And I know this is the real true. This I have no doubt. It is my true while it may not be yours. But my true is enough. It keeps me holding firm to life when I’d rather throw my hands up in surrender. He is my truth that offers strength and faith to believe even when others fail and let me down. Even when I fail and let others down because I have and I will but somewhere deep inside is this True.

True love.

True grace.

True mercy.

True life.

“Jesus replied, “You’re right that you only have my word. But you can depend on it being true.” John 8:14

      Thank you Jennifer. My husband gets crazy when I remind him many people have other truths. It’s how the world is and to be a light I think we need to recognize not everyone believes as we do. It’s also made me so thankful for having this foundation laid for me from my parents. Thanks for stopping by.

    i’ve been wrestling with truth all this week, so this post really spoke to me. It’s so difficult to know how to handle situations when you KNOW deceit is the mode of operation by others who are ‘spinning’ the truth. All I can do is be true to the One who saved me and speak truth, even when it hurts.

    • Debby says:

      I’m with you, Cindy. It is hard and at times it hurts. I have felt some of that this week too. And I never like it. You know you can always send me a private email if you need to vent. I’m okay with that. 🙂

    I appreciate the point that everyone has a distinct perspective, their own truth–long after leaving my nuclear family, I realized this, that no one was “wrong”, we all merely had different views of the same events/situations. It’s a great comfort to me to know that Jesus is my lasting truth, no matter where I’m standing or from what skewed perspective. God bless you BIG–love, sis Caddo

    • Debby says:

      Well, Caddo, I do believe there is only One that is the truth but I try my best to understand there are many different “truths” today. It’s not always easy but I believe our call is to love. I’m pretty sure that’s where you are too. ❤

      • Caddo says:

        Yes, if I mangled my comment, I fully agree that Jesus is the One Truth. I guess my thoughts spilled over into other earthly venues….

We'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
