mid week chatter

leo and i are reading "Destined for Glory" by Margaret Clarkson (click HERE for info on the author) ... i first read it back in the early 80's, when this pain walk was in it's infancy ... it has been a good re-read - 25 years later ...

from page 87:

"Perhaps the greatest good that suffering can work for a believer is to increase the capacity of his soul for God. Only when we are at the end of our own resources will many of us draw upon the wealth God longs to give us. As pain forces us to the limits of our own endurance, we come to discover God's strength; as it empties us of ourselves, we begin to experience God's fullness. The greater our need, the greater will be our capacity; the greater our capacity, the greater will be our experience of God."

Goodsearch is great! You can donate to Transformation Network, too. That's the ministry I work for.
