Thankful Thursday ~ Truth

“So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” ~ John 8:31-32 (ESV ~ emphasis mine)

Some of you might remember that I had posted about ‘Truth’ in March. For some reason the post is no longer in my archive…

This morning as I was driving to work I thought about ‘Truth’. Truth, what is truth? Many people in today’s society don’t see the Bible as truth. Jesus is per unbelievers not the “Only Way” to heaven…I believe that Jesus is the only way. Not because I said so, but Jesus did in John 14

Today, I am thankful for the Truth – for His Truth – the One I can trust…

  • Thank you Lord for the gift of the Holy Spirit to allow me to see your Truth. Because of the Christ – I am set free. Lord help me to stand for the Truth here on my personal blog, and at Laced with Grace until Your return or You call me home…
  • I am thankful that I can talk to my beloved in truth. If I am hurting, I can share with him my hurt. He is my comfort in the times that are not so wonderful…
  • I am thankful that I can be truthful with some of my girlfriends. I don’t have to hold back, because I know they understand my struggles…
  • I am thankful that we still can (for now) share our Christian faith with others… There are some legislative bills out there that are currently considered to be passed in various states that might restrict sharing our ‘exclusive’ faith…
  • I am thankful for pastors, Biblical teachers/leaders, authors that teach us truth – truth that only can found in Scripture…

What are you thankful for this week? Please do share with us by leaving your link below. One request I have: please only leave your link if you do participate in Thankful Thursday. I had to remove a couple of links last week…

Thank you so much for stopping by this week. Remember: He alone can plant real truth in your heart – allow Him to work in your life…

    WOW…my anti-spam was Grace. That word means SO much to me right now. This Thankful Thursday means a lot to me as I struggle to find ways to comprehend and share what going through Ike and what I’ve seen, felt and just prayed about for all whose been touched by this hurricane.

  2. Beautiful post, Iris! I, too am soooo thankful for His Truth. I want His Truth to be the first word on my lips, the first thought in my mind. I want His Truth hidden in my heart.

    Mine is quite different this week!


  3. mama meji says:

    The possibility of not being able to share one’s faith is a sad thing. I couldn’t imagine keeping my Christian faith to myself.

  4. Laurie Adams says:

    I too am thankful for His truth and that His truth sets us free! Thanks always for a great inspiration to us and for gracefully hosting each week so we can share our grateful hearts with each other! -Many blessings, Laurie

  5. Rocks says:

    Hi Iris! thank you again for this Thankful Thursday, I thank God I found your blog and through this I found so many inspirational blogs too 🙂

    yes, it would be sad if we can’t share our faith to anyone anymore..God will not let that happen for we are created to share the good news to everyone.

  6. flmom says:

    What a tremendous blessing to have women friends you can be total open and honest with! Blessings to you in the week ahead!!

  7. Ann says:

    Thanks for a great post, Iris. I’m also thankful that the truth sets us free!

  8. Willnette says:

    Truth, thank you for this list. I too am thankful for truth and those who walk in it. Let us pray for those who are yet to know the truth and That God will contineu to use us to spread His truth- Jesus is the only way to Him. There are still too many who have yet to accept this truth.

  9. Peggy says:

    Blessings IRIS…May HIS TRUTH continues to set us free daily from this world so we may focus on His Kingdom & His Word that we are so thankful to share and have to cover our hearts, minds, and lives daily…His Living Water. I’m so thankful for HIS TRUTH to guide me. You have shared an awesome verse & thankfulness abounds
    in each one on your list…such a beautiful TT! Enjoy your many TT participants!
    What a blessing it is to know each other & share in this TRUTH! Thanks Iris!

  10. Iris,

    A hugh AMEN to your first thankful comment!! The Helper is so AWESOME!!!

  11. Serendipity says:

    I too am thankful for His Truth! There are too many lies in this world today and trust is so easily broken. But we can trust Him all the time.

    Have a blessed day!

  12. Beth says:

    Again, another wonderful post of “thankfuls”! Thank you for “Thankful Thursday”

  13. Kim says:

    Very well said.

  14. Stacy says:

    I am also thankful for His truth. I am seeing more and more that there are many who claim to be Christians, yet there is no fruit in their lives. They have fallen prey to a false “truth” and when you try to talk to them about it, they attack you.

    After reading this week about how gospel singer Ray Boltz has been deceived from the real Truth, it reminds me that in this day and age, we need to boldly hold on to the Word of God, planting it deep into our hearts so that we don’t end up being deceived.

  15. Laurel says:

    Without truth I would be nothing. About five years ago, I spent a week looking up everything in the bible that said “I tell you the truth..” I wanted to find all of God’s truths. It was awesome.

    Have a great day, prayed for you this morning.

  16. heather says:

    And I am thankful for you, Iris! Today is my one year bloggiversary, and TT was the first bloggy carnival that I found and participated in.

    Have a blessed day!

  17. Willow says:

    Thank you for declaring Truth to us – not just today, but with every post you make.

    I’ve talked with ‘Shortybear’ today. I have an update on her where abouts on my TT post.

  31. Kathy says:

    Thank you for a beautiful post.

  32. Peggy says:

    Blessings again IRIS…So where did the TRUTH go? I have been pondering about
    your March archive…I linked again so I’m #14 and #74 because you now have more than one Peggy…WOW TT just keeps growing…and I noticed around the blog world another Thankful Thursday!!! I hope that the other blog that had a link for TT has
    learned not to link your TT, it was being done on TSMSS and that’s when I noticed it.
    It just was very confusing. When I put up my Mr. Linky for my Monday meme, I saw
    that they had a list of meme that you could get the code. Still don’t understand this computer stuff! May God continue to bless you, your blog and Laced with Grace as you stand on HIS TRUTH! Thank you Iris…for the beauty of each TT, you offer up a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving!!!

  33. I too am so thankful for God’s truth. The anti spam you have for me is Christ… My post is about Christ’s love!

    Thank you for your TT post. God bless you.

  34. Debbie says:

    I’m so thankful for this weekly reminder. My post today is on being thankful despite all of the news we hear on TV. Remember how the Lord has been faithful in the past to us.

  35. becky voyles says:

    Iris, your fourth hearted thankfulness is the one that stuck out and struck home with me today. Thank you for sharing that one as well as all the others.

    He is truth and we can trust him! Thanks Iris! I wish you a heap of blessings!

  40. Sabrina says:

    I love that you focused on Truth. I am so thankful for the truth in God’s word, and for how my hubby and I can be completely honest with each other without fearing what that will mean. Thanks for posting this. God bless!

  41. Jerri says:

    Great post! Thanks for posting Thankful Thursday. This is my first time participating. I think it’s a wonderful idea!

    Love Lea

  43. Nadine says:

    Hi Iris:

    It’s been a while since I’ve stopped by, but life has been so busy and I’m now being able to get around blogland.

    I hope all is well with you.


  44. Hi Iris,
    Great theme today. I had written my thankfuls before I read your post on the theme! So next week, I’ll be themed. 🙂 Remember I had this problem before: I can’t see the mr. linky entry-form. I can see 100 links, but no form to add my own link… I have no idea why. Any clues?

    thanks for this great meme!

  45. Kat says:

    I can’t believe I forgot to say….HAPPY BIRTHDAY Iris! in my last post. Have a wonderful day today and enjoy lots of yummy cake and much love from friends and family as you celebrate!

  46. Hey again!! I wanted to participate in the meme this morning, but can’t see Mr. Linky’s add thingy to do that… weird! Hugs.. Amy
