“Do you see what I’ve done? I’ve refined you, I’ve tested you like silver in the furnace of affliction. There’s more to come.”
We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, Day and night I’ll stick with God; I’ve got a good thing going and I’m not letting go.
The whole point of what we’re urging is simply love–love uncontaminated by self-interest and counterfeit faith, a life open to God.
