Today's quote...

....If they [afflictions] draw out your soul to love the Lord more, and to fear the Lord more, and to please the Lord more, and to walk with the Lord more, then they are in love. Then they are the wounds of a friend indeed." ~Thomas Brooks ~ (Written in response to a Christian who said he could only handle his trials if he knew that God's love was behind them.)

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
