encouragement

I was having my Quiet Time this morning when I came across some notes in the back of my Bible that I had taken when I attended a Beth Moore conference a while ago.  They really encouraged me so I thought I'd share.

John 1:16-17
"a" truth needs to eclipse "the" truth.
"a" truth does not become "the" truth until it has His word on it.
example: 
a truth- I am lonely
the truth- Jesus will never leave me


a truth- I am weary
the truth- Jesus will give me rest.  God gives strength to the weary


"The" truth takes "a" truth and turns it into a testimony.  I can only NOT handle a truth when I don't couple it with His grace.


I love God's Word!
