Today's Relevant Tweet

From Pastor Tullian:

"Joylessness in suffering happens when we lose something we’ve held onto more than God. Suffering itself doesn't rob u of joy; idolatry does."

Amen brother.

And now today's (9/25)...

"How is your present disappointment, discouragement, or grief a window on what has actually captured your heart?" Paul Tripp

And one more (9/26)...

"Suffering exposes what you're building your life on; what you're relying on to give your life meaning."

And another (9/30)...

"Idols always break the heart of their worshippers." – CS Lewis

I don't take the timing of these as coincidence. God is talking. I am listening.
