Greater Outcomes

There are greater outcomes when we endure the furnace of affliction with grace, allowing God to birth in us a deeper compassion through the fire.

The Battles we Fight

We’re each granted our own share of battles that when we emerge victorious we might also battle on behalf of others.

A Deeper Love

Those of us who bear scars love on deeper levels than those who have not endured the fires of affliction.

Blood-red Compassion

Through our scars we bleed blood-red compassion that brings others to know the healing that is found in Christ.

No Fear

In this crazy, violent age, the safest place to be is in God. It doesn’t ensure we will never experience physical harm, but that He will preserve us until our calling in life is complete. My prayer has always been: “Lord, preserve my life to fulfill every good work you have for me, until the day when my death will give you the greatest glory and honor.” And knowing He’s always been faithful, I walk in confidence and will not fear evil or death in these evil days.

Greater than My Fear

Yes, I feel afraid when I hear of all the awful things going on in the world. But I know my God is greater than my fear, and I know that one day, after my flesh has been destroyed, I will see him with my own eyes.

The Only Refuge

I am convinced that while there is no safe place on earth, there is no safer place than in the only refuge that will withstand the ravages of evil. “God is our refuge and strength.”
