Stretches of darkness

breathtaking_photos_21 B

If anyone tells you that the life of prayer is one uninterrupted experience of being happy with Jesus, do not follow him. He is not a safe guide. Those who follow the Lamb know that there are stretches of darkness and loneliness and perplexity along the way, and they know that Jesus himself went that way.

–Lesslie Newbigin

We all preach


Every day you preach
to yourself a gospel
of your loneliness, inability,
and lack of resources or
you faithfully preach
to yourself the gospel
of the Lord Jesus Christ.

–Paul David Tripp
