crooked souls trying to stand...

"Perfect goodness can never debate about the end to be attained, and perfect wisdom cannot debate about the means most suited to achieve it." C.S. Lewis The thunder is thundering through the sky once again today and it triggers the storms that await...and reminds of the storms that have passed. Still, I'm hopeful that the sun will burst forth once again. I once heard a quote that the shadows prove the sunshine. If only we could remember that through every twist and turn during a period of suffering and through every tear. I was reminded just recently that I am simply a crooked soul trying to stand in the desert. My own battles urge me to continue running in the race that lies ahead, to never give up, to accept my suffering as a part of my imperfect existence, and to believe that no matter how crooked I may be, the grip of His grace will never let me go. "...He knows the way I take. When He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold..." Job 23. "Try to exclude the possibilities of suffering which the order of nature and the existence of free wills involve, and you find that you have excluded life itself." C.S. Lewis
