Mabey Memories

The desire of my heart is to become the person God dreams of and share those dreams with others; to unleash personal and corporate creativiy within the church, overflowing it with passion and freedom while searching for the face and character of God.

Ecclesiastes 7:3

Sorrow is better than laughter; for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.

It is sorrow that makes us think deeply, long and soberly. Great thunderstorms of sorrow reveal hidden depths within that were never hitherto suspected.
God never uses anybody to a large degree, until after He breaks that one all to pieces. Joseph had more sorrow than all the other sons of Jacob, and it led him into a ministry of bread to all nations.

Every person and every nation must take lessons in God's school of adversity. "We can say blessed is night for it reveals to us the stars." at the same time we can say "blessed is sorrow for it reveales to us GOd's comfort"

A chapter in our lives is coming to an end, and in doing so I am trying to remember as C.S. Lewis stated in his movie the Chronicles of Narnia, " All that is wrong will be turned right when ASLAN comes into sight.
