The Bible never belittles human disappointment (remember the proportion in Job — one chapter of restoration follows forty-one chapters of anguish), but it does add one key word: temporary. What we feel now, we will not always feel. Our disappointment is itself a sign, an aching, a hunger for something better. And faith is, in the end, a kind of homesickness — for a home we have never visited but have never once stopped longing for.
~Philip Yancey, DISAPPOINTMENT WITH GOD
Quite honestly, I am not the brightest bulb in the box.
Comparing me to others, I may be a 40 watt bulb.
BUT comparing me to Jesus & His teachings…
I’m about a 4.3 watt bulb.
But if you hook me up with Jesus, by His grace I am 100 watts of pure gracious and glorious hope that others may find Him, too!
