the long view

"I once mused, via Francis Shaeffer, that I think the sovereignty of God is best found in that he keeps us from falling off the edge. No matter where we sail in this life, we can ultimately rest secure in knowing that there's no abyss waiting to swallow us up, however much we may feel like there is. We are hard pressed, but not crushed. Perplexed, but not despairing. Persecuted, but not abandoned. Struck down, but not destroyed.

Though I seldom give him credit for it, God really is faithful to us. Seeing my life go past me in superfast motion, I couldn't believe all I've made it through. I couldn't believe all that I thought would crush me or destroy me, and yet here I am."
