“Emotions might overwhelm you today, and that’s okay. You’ve had worse. Don’t worry if you’re too timid to do anything about these big feelings. Lucky for you, you’re experiencing a pretty common feature of the human condition. Popular culture covers this ground with movies, books and music. Let someone else’s scene play out your inner state this time.”
“Sometimes God’s will makes perfect sense, as you examine your experience. That doesn’t mean, however, that you won’t be required to take risks for God. The best things in life often come with the greatest risks. The degree of difficulty is not an indication that God is not in it. In fact, the opposite would be closer to truth.
Sometimes you will have to go against common sense, against what others advise, even against what you want to do in order to follow God’s plan.”
