Today’s Quote on Adversity

“I implore you to not give in to despair. It is a dangerous temptation because our adversary has refined it to the point that it is quite subtle. Hopelessness constricts and withers the heart, rendering it unable to sense God’s blessings and grace. It also causes you to exaggerate the adversities of life and makes your burden seem too heavy for you to bear. Yet God’s plans for you and His ways of bringing about His plans, are infinitely wise.”  ~Madame Guyon

For Reflection: Luke 12:22-26

Today’s Quote on Suffering

“If we cultivate within ourselves a deep rest in God, an existential grasp of His love for us, then we will find that suffering can sting and cause pain, but it can’t uproot us, overthrow us. Because suffering can’t touch our Main Thing – God, His love, and His salvation.”   ~Timothy Keller

For Reflection: Romans 8:8-39
