It’s better to wrestle with truth than wallow in turmoil. (Lysa TerKeurst, author)
It’s been said that truth hurts only when it’s applied. If we ignore truth, we won’t have to wrestle with it, but we will undoubtedly suffer the consequences of such ignorance. It often is hard to handle the truth, especially if it makes us aware of our shortcomings, but to wallow in it is to continue confusion and unsolved issues. It is better to face the truth and adjust to it.
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. (John 3:21)
