Dear Suffering Disciple,
All is not lost. Today you stand in ashes. It is not meaningless. Not one ounce of it is meaningless. Do not miscarry what is being surgically worked out in you by your good and loving Father in heaven. This would be the greatest tragedy of all. Don’t look to what is seen with human eyes. Lift up those eyes blurred with tears. Lift them up. Take hold of these two things:
1. Your Father in heaven loves you deeply and perfectly.
2. Your Father in heaven is strong and in precise control. Nothing can be added or taken away without his express permission. Nothing has slipped his grasp.
Take hold of these two truths about God. One in your right hand, the other in your left…all may be stripped away as the waves crash over you, but do not let go of these. They will be an anchor for the soul.
“One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong, and that you, O Lord, are loving.” Psalm 62:11-12a
