These words are sustaining me today...

From Ed Welch's, Running Scared: Fear, Worry, & the God of Rest,
"Are you a pessimist or an optimist? Silly question--worriers by definition expect the worst. Bad things certainly can and will happen, but there is a resurrection ending. So your task is not to transform into a superficial optimist [thank God!]. It is to grow to be an optimist by faith. The kingdom is advancing; God's reign is spreading; there will be justice; and when we belong to Christ, it will end with joy."
