When we are tried and we persevere, God is glorified in us! That’s the most fulfilling and best measure of joy we could ever have.

Of shoe washing and chats with God

Now, the whiteness of my shoe is not in its cleanness, but in its make. No matter how much dirt goes onto that shoe it will still be referred to as “white shoes”.
