All around, chaos reigns, friendships shattered, relationships damaged, love tested, friendships stretched, futures on hold, suffering all around.
I tell myself that within every storm there is a place where the sun still shines, where there is peace to be found that shelter can be found from the battering of hurt and tears....
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and do not forget all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's. (Psalm 103:2-5)
"Let me state something important. There is never a time during which Jesus is not speaking. Never. There is never a place in which Jesus is not present. Never." (p.91)
