Truth, a Poem



Truth

Truth rolls off my back
like water off a duck.

Finding places to sit in,
Places to lead others to query

Chasing away the dirt and grime
Making one be like new.

Truth

Easily discernable from a lie
Most of the time

But sometimes truth is hidden in a lie
A lie that needs light shone upon it

and suddenly.. there it is ... revealed

Truth

It demonstates a man honest
It shows a child's integrity
It displays a woman reliable

Truth

It's part of the Godhead
Seen ultimately in his son Jesus
God declared he knew how to make us right with him
And so it was done.

Truth was spoke
Truth revealed.
A people saved.

 Truth

This is a five minute Friday post. the word prompt is brought to us by Miss KateWhat is Five Minute Friday?  Well it's a party of a group of like minded folks who gather on Friday to do a five minute free write around a singular word.  AND THEN (and this is the most important part) we take the time to offer up encouragement to each other on this writing journey.  It's fun, though it's not always easy, but it is always good.   Come join us won't you?  You are always welcome.

  1. Oh, how I want to be known as an honest reliable woman. I guess it starts with keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus. I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  2. Annette, this is great...especially the bit that truth can be hidden in a lie that needs light shone on it.

    Wow. That is something I'll be thinking about for quite a while.

  3. Pondering "sometimes truth is hidden in a lie." Then there are those lies that are cloaked by partial truth, like the temptations of Jesus. We certainly need God's wisdom and discernment to see and understand His truth. Have a beautiful weekend! Visiting you from 8 on FMF this week.

    1. there's always the flip side, and I pondered that, but decided that it was good to see that truths are sometimes hidden.

  7. Annette, what a great poem. And a beautiful new look for your blog. I was caught up in the idea of truth being hidden in a lie. That's something to ponder. How many times do my kids lie about something, but give me a grain of truth in their words? It's tricky to discern sometimes.

    Have a great week, friend!
