When we are puzzled by delays and detours, let us think about the great purpose of life: to glorify God.
The Lord has promised to supply all our needs. What we don't have now, we don't need now.
To be afraid of what happens today or what may happen tomorrow is not only an awful waste of energy, it's not only useless, it's disobedient
If your goal is purity of heart, prepare to be thought very odd.
We are not meant to die merely to be dead. God could not want that for the creatures to whom he has given life. We die in order to live.
