Merciful Refusals



Never forget that some of God's greatest mercies are His refusals.
He says "no" in order that He may, in ways we cannot imagine, say "yes."
All His ways with us are merciful. His meaning is always love.

- Elisabeth Elliot

I felt unconditionally calm reading the post. Somehow, I dunno, having a look at your post upsurge my faith in the mystical power ( I have another definition of my God)which is kind to me, has always been and I trust will always be.
