I’m going to show how our IQ is sovereignly ordered perfectly by the Lord. Yes, our very IQ is in God's divine plan.
Perfectionism is merely a man-made construct to experience the perfect outside of God. It is destructive and debilitating to have these expectations.
Perfection isn't possible. Be it a my perfect performance, people behaving perfectly or having a perfect world, my demand is dashed on the rocks of reality.
The Lord with His sovereign touch has been more entreating than dismissive. His sovereign touch is drenched in His loving care and perfect knowledge.
His grace has shown me purpose for certain pains in my life, but simple understanding of what God takes us through really doesn’t have power in itself. No, where there’s power is in my yes.
Some surrender to the cosmos as ones who are tossed by its whim and fancy; a simple leaf in the torrent unable to direct their path.
Hopelessness is insupportable within the Life of Christ, and it’s a quagmire from which we need to be rescued.
There's a difference between pain and suffering for someone who’s born again. Suffering is usually the result of my resistance, while pain is a mark of change.

My goal in laying out this book is to lead you from ground zero of God’s sovereignty out to the whole world of God’s ultimate sovereign control.
Sovereignty is a reality that few wish to tackle because of its ramification in our lives is enormous.
I don’t want to live my life resisting what offends me or the things I don’t like. Rather I want to live receiving all of life as from God.
