That is, it is a truth; what you have said, I admit to be true.In truth, in reality; in fact.
Of a truth, in reality; certainly.To do truth, is to practice what God commands. John 3.

Personally.....

The definition of truth posted today is taken straight out of Webster's Dictionary (1828). Back in those days scripture was an everyday part of life for the majority of people. Unfortunately, today we don't have such liberty. With so much dysfunction, deception, and immoral activity going on it is hard to even decipher truth. Life's reality can be seen clearly in the pages of the Bible. Every word is God-breathed and can be trusted. 2Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.

My mother always instilled in me about being truthful and though I have many faults telling lies is not one of them. I hope my offsprings realises the importance of truthfulness.
Enjoyed your write and song.

Amen Beverly. I prayed awhile on the word I would use for T and wanted to use truth because it is so deeply important to me as the foundation of Christian faith. But that door did not open to me. I wanted so badly to write on truth that I drew a blank up until the last minute, though I had a plethora of T words I had brainstormed. Then it became clear to me that there was something else for me to address. Yet among all the many places I could have stopped, He led me here. So glad to see truth expounded so clearly and truthfully. God bless, Maria at Delight Directed Living
