You know grief and loss. You've been hurt a thousand times. As impossible as it might feel, trust that blessing is already embracing your anguish and that God will indeed turn the page.
We bear a lot of pain in the name of love. As Christians, we do that for one another, in order to remember that God is doing it for us.
We are all lifelong learners, Jesus says, and there's only one Teacher. So if you think you're wise, get over yourself.
When our plans and predictions go bust and our expectations aren't fulfilled, God is still God.
There is no gospel that leads to the killing of the soul. The Spirit calls for us to speak the words that set people free, not the words that keep them in their chains.
Richard L. Floyd

Kenneth L. Samuel

How long, O Lord? We need the world you promise. We need you to vindicate our sticking with you all this time, to redeem our suffering and crown our deaths with life.
