Receiving and giving is the law of the universe, because they are part of the very nature of God. Love receives and love gives. Love has to love.
We expect to see God in beauty, praise, and joy. We expect to see God in light. But what happens when all we see is darkness?
Our faith is never perfect. We are always falling, stumbling, and weak in how we come to Jesus. He is always quick to stand beside us in his strength.
We’re always in a hurry, and it’s easy for us to miss things. That’s why it’s so good to know that God isn’t, and he doesn’t.
It was the disciples fault that they were in this storm because Jesus had told them to wait for him. But instead, they had set out without him.

People are like mirrors. We look at them and see ourselves in what we see reflected back, but this will always fall infinitely short of how God sees us.
