In troubled times read the last few chapters in the book of Revelations. Though man totally screws up the hero returns to bring a happy ending.
“Oh the overwhelming, never ending reckless love of God.” This simple line from a favourite song always moves my heart. “I don’t deserve it, I cannot earn it. Yet He gives Himself away,” it says. Overwhelming is indeed a wonderful word to describe His love, but I think “reckless” touches me even more.
“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others and given the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction.”—Bessie StanleyT
