"My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts." This was proved true to me again yesterday. It seemed that all things were against me. Yet the very things that seemed against me were God’s gracious means to bring me to repentance and to cause lowness of heart. Then quickly, when I was humbled in his sight, he lifted me up. Will I ever learn this lesson? I seem to be learning it over and over again.

Random Quote

Again, the principle to be slain is in ourselves. It cannot be killed without a sense of pain and trouble. Hence it is compared to the cutting off of right hands, and the plucking out of right eyes. Lusts that pretend to be useful to the state and condition of men, that are pleasant and satisfactory to the flesh, will not be mortified without such a violence as the whole soul shall be deeply sensible of.

— John Owen
