Through the Storm

“Everything we cannot thank God for, we reproach him for.” (Bonhoeffer)

I’m in the midst of a storm.

It’s not pleasant, but it must be necessary.

I’ve been driven to my knees.

I’m afflicted, not crushed.

I’m struck down, not destroyed.

Surely, I’m not abandoned.

Shall I receive the good from God and not the bad?

No, I must give thanks.

I will give thanks.

Far be it for me to reproach Him who sent His beloved Son to die for me.

Far be it for me to reproach Him who loves me with an everlasting love.

No, I must give thanks.

I will give thanks.
