New Post and Old Truth

After about a month's break, I'm back to blogging. This last month was busy, hard, and fun. With that, here is an interesting note on prayer from Paul Miller (no relation) in his book A Praying Life--which, by the way, was named by Kevin DeYoung as his favorite book of 2009.

"If God is sovereign, then He is in control of all the details of my life. If He is loving, then He is going to be shaping the details of my life for my good. If He is all-wise, then He's not going to do everything I want because I don't know what I need. If He is patient, then He is going to take time to do all this. When we put all these things together--God's sovereignty, love, wisdom, and patience--we have a divine story."

--Paul Miller, A Praying Life, p. 22


  1. Thanks for this super reminder, very comforting to me today.

  2. I'm glad...its been something I've been thinking about since I've read it. God is so much greater than we can understand...
