I heard this at BSF this week...i really like kate luther...
The great Christian reformer, Martin Luther, in fact, once spent three days in a black depression over something that had gone wrong. On the third day his wife came downstairs dressed in mourning clothes. “Who’s dead?” he asked her. “God,” she replied. Luther rebuked her, saying, “What do you mean, God is dead? God cannot die.” “Well,” she replied, “the way you’ve been acting I was sure He had!” (James Gallop - Sermon Central).
I used some of these in Joanne's blessing bunting...Please PRAY!
"The best prayers have often more groans than words."
"We do not choose suffering simply because we are told to, but because the one who tells us to describes it as the path to everlasting joy."
"Christ was willing to suffer and be despised, and darest thou complain of anything?"
~Thomas a Kempis
