If you’ve read my blog over the past few years, you no doubt have seen posts that speak about Pastor John from my church. Today’s post on John’s blog included this powerful thought. I had to share it via my blog and Facebook!
“We cannot go through a life-crisis and come out the other side unchanged. The fire will consume or refine—devour or strengthen—but it will leave its mark upon us. Adversity doesn’t have to harm us, but it must alter us. And we alone choose whether this change will be for the better or the worse.” (A quote from Pastor John Stumbo at Salem Alliance Church, Salem, OR)
