I really shouldn't be on here given the magnitude of my "t0-do" list today. However, I was so moved by my Streams in the Desert today that I felt led to post the scripture here:
Thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress Psalm 4:1
The visual of this BLOWS me away.
The line I like best in the commentary is this:
It is not a man's thanksgiving that he has been set free from suffering. It is a thanksgiving that he has been set free THROUGH suffering. He declares the sorrows of life to have been themselves the source of life's enlargement.
I am sure I will expound on this later, but for now, may it give you food for your day.
