Even the dark chapters, He allowed to form me into the person I am today. I am all the
more cognizant that:
Without experiencing pain, you have no compassion for the hurting.
Without struggling against sin, you cannot fully understand the poor pilgrim who is overcome by the enemy.
Without failure, you cannot understand the sweetness of success that finally supersedes the disappointment of efforts lost.
Without being violated, you cannot understand the defilement of the forsaken and abused?
Without rejection," acceptance in the Beloved," is only a theological doctrine.
Without loss " the restoration of all things." is just a scriptural theory.
Without offence, praying, "Father forgive me as I forgive others," has no meaning.
I am thankful for the darkness, for now the Light of Dawn is ever so more delightfully delicious....
IN ALL THINGS I GIVE THANKS....
