We spend our whole lives trying to avoid anything that will hurt or be hard. But there’s a better kind of life–a deeper, more fulfilling kind of life–that isn’t about avoiding every pain. It’s about finding God faithful and powerful in the midst of whatever thorns He allows.
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
The King James Version
God, so approachable by him who hows how to love, is hidden from him who knows only how to understand.
