"Why do you run after illusions? Know that the Lord has done marvelous things for those He has chosen. When I call upon the Lord, He will hear me.”
"...about living at peace with God—and what he really meant by that. It meant not living bent over by the weight of what might have been, what was supposed to have been. Not living with the burden of what had been lost, what had gone wrong, or what we’d done wrong—but rather standing straight, knowing that God still walked before us, beside us, behind us. With us. Through it all. That Christ had made right all that was wrong. Forever and always."
"Because if there was one thing I’d come to understand, it was that life was never a guarantee. It was only a daily gift."
