God is amazing. He uses our tears and our pain, if we allow Him, to bring glory to His name. I have been writing for five years. I would have never thought that my writing would have traveled the globe the way in which it has. God has taken my story, my hurt and my trials and given me the opportunity to be a missionary in places I would have never thought possible. When we are willing to be used, He will use us. Flaws and all! It is incredible to know that my pain was not for nothing. That daily someone in this world might find what I wrote and know God loves them. How amazing! HE is good!

“Isn’t it staggering when you think that one sermon on the day of Pentecost produced 3000 Christian people? And we had some cities yesterday where 3000 sermons were preached and nobody was saved. And it doesn’t even faze us. The church used to be a lightning bolt, now it’s a cruise ship. We are not marching to Zion – we are sailing there with ease. In the apostolic church it says they were all amazed – And now in our churches everybody wants to be amused.

We mistake rattle for revival, and commotion for creation, and action for unction. Look, I think this is a critical hour in history, the most critical hour in history; the Middle East is ready to blow up… the prestige of this nation we love has gone down … As someone said, “We live in a theater of the absurd…
When did you last tiptoe out of the sanctuary when you dare not say a word? The church has to rediscover two things. One, the majesty and the Holiness of God, and the other, the sinfulness of sin.” —Leonard Ravenhill
