Someone once asked a man how he was, He replied, “I’m going through hell!”
“Well, keep on going. That is no place to stop!” Said his friend
“If you seem to be going through the deep waters of physical anguish and cannot for the moment seem to gain the understanding which binds the strong man, keep on going—keep on clinging to Truth, and hear again the comforting, strengthening message, “My grace is sufficient for thee.” Gods, divine Love, is eternally sustaining His child, and will “bind the power of pain” as surely as the summer sun will melt the stubborn frost.” – John Randall Dunn
