"And this, so that I may know Him [experientially, becoming more thoroughly acquainted with Him, understanding the remarkable wonders of His Person more completely] and [in that same way experience] the power of His resurrection [which overflows and is active in believers]... Philippians 3 "Tragedy is the absence of God in the human experience."- Recapture/Ravi Z "The noblest reason is to know God Himself."- Recapture/Ravi Z These readings rebuke and remind me that the happenings of daily life are meant to enrich my experience, understanding, and enjoyment of who God is and how He works in my pursuits and in my relationship with others. and even through whatever painful or upsetting things that happen, I know He will turn everything around for my good and for His glory. Today, I pray to put more attention onto the goodness and grace of God in every situation and in everyone.
