Here is one big truth that my friend Erin's friend Amy wrote for you as well:

ONE BIG TRUTH: Mephibosheth
ONE BIG TRUTH can change your life. Peer in with me as we pull back the curtain in the life of Mephibosheth.
Broken. Hopeless. Dependent.  With his crippled feet and despondent spirit, Mephibosheth was carried into the presence of King David. Shaking with the uncertainty of the king’s intent, Mephibosheth fell on his face in submission and fear (2 Samuel 9:6). With panted breath and trembling, his memories drifted back to the tragic events of his life that led him to this moment:
  • He lost his future due to his grandfather’s disobedience (1 Samuel 15:17, 28).
  • He lost his family (both his father and grandfather) in battle (2 Samuel 4:4).
  • He lost his independence and was crippled in both feet. Fleeing from the palace, his nurse dropped him when she fell (2 Samuel 4:4).
  • He lost honor and lived unnoticed in Lo Debar under the care of provision of another (2 Samuel 9:4).
His life was riddled with disappointment and tragic loss. He was broken… before his encounter with this ONE BIG TRUTH:
God loves and restores the broken.
In that moment with his face to the floor, the kind and generous words of the king offered hope to his hopelessness. The king who had made a promise and intended to keep it (2 Samuel 9:7).
Recoiling in disbelief, Mephibosheth spewed out disgust for his very existence by saying “What is your servant that you should notice a dead dog [garbage] like me?” (2 Samuel 9:8)
In strength and faithfulness, King David lovingly lifts the crippled and defeated man and restores honor, provision, and position to all that he had lost (2 Samuel 9:9-10).
After…loved and restored.
In gaped amazement, Mephibosheth hears one word…always (2 Samuel 9:13). ONE BIG TRUTH changed his life.
