Heard as I drove between my home and the church I serve.  Consider these thoughts closely…

God’s sovereignty is not a cold theological confession as much as it is a soft pillow for a weary head.

The trials we endure are an education in the art of sympathy.

Those who are honored of the Lord in public have usually to endure a secret chastening or carry a particular cross lest by any means they exalt themselves and fall into the snare of the devil.  God makes us weak so the glory will go entirely to Him.  (Charles Haddon Spurgeon)
