God uses our time on this earth to refine us, and it takes a lot of work, a lot of heat, and a whole lot of patience.
A man who is truly of integrity is hard to come by; it’s harder still to live one’s life under such a strict code of ethics, and part of that difficulty comes from the challenge of defining without a shadow of a doubt what’s morally right.
God’s plans are often difficult for us to discern, but if we trust in Him, he will make our paths straight. God’s timing is unique and sometimes surprising!
Everything is richer to those who know the Lord. One who truly knows and loves Christ should find joy in everything that he faces (James 1:2-4). God brings to us a whole new way of looking at the world.
